Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in Layman’s Terms by Raymond Le Blanc


In my opinion, Autism & Asperger’s Syndrome. Your Guide to Understanding Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS and Other Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) is probably the most complete work for the layperson available. The author is clear, concise, and very thorough on the topic. It’s a great book for a parent, a loved one, a teacher or other professional, or anyone that wants to know more about autism and its related disorders.

The author lays out the chapters from birth to adulthood; covering topics such as food, toys, living arrangements, medication, therapies, education, and even sexuality. I can’t imagine ever needing another book on the subject, because the author has been so inclusive in this text. Each chapter ends with a summary for the reader. One of the last chapters summarizes the whole book for reference. The author gives many helpful websites at the end of the book. While this book is only 260 pages, you are getting a fabulous reference book.

I will most definitely be recommending this book to my friends that have kids on the spectrum. I think that this book will be known as the ultimate autism reference guide in the future.

I received this book from the author for my honest opinion.  This post contains affiliate links.

  1. Sandy, I am new follower (bloglovin) to your blog. I found you on the Saturday Social Media Link Up. I know, I am a few days late 🙁
    I LOVE this book & the review you wrote for it! My friends son was recently diagnosed with Autism & the books she has found read more like Doctors Files than books for the average, everyday, Mom.
    I will def share this title and author with her.
    I have enjoyed reading your blog a lot too. Cant wait to come back & read more!

    1. Thank you for stopping over! Who’s keeping count of days?! I was asked by the writer to read the book and the only connection to autism I have is a friend with a child that has it. So, I read it from a completely uneducated, mostly, position. I hope you friend will enjoy the book.

  2. Sandy, this is a great book to know about. My husband Jared is in medical school, and I often don’t understand the jargon he talks to me about. I need it in layman’s terms! I will definitely look this book up.

    Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings : )
