"I read your book "My Name is Matt." It explains very clearly how Asperger's Syndrome affects a child. It will be helpful with elementary school children to encourage them to help an Asperger's child instead of teasing her."

Sincerely, Temple Grandin

Dr. Grandin is a Professor at Colorado State University. She is an adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and she has written several books and presented all over the world on the topic of Autism.

"The content is very good for many children with ASD, and also for their siblings and peers. This may go a long way toward helping children who are especially prone to bullying and misunderstanding by their peers. There is a great deal of information about ASD available for parents and adults, but not enough that speaks directly to the kids."

Andrew W. Zimmerman, M.D., Pediatric Neurologist, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Baltimore, MD.

"The diagnostic term Asperger’s syndrome describes a complex pattern of abilities. As a clinician I know how difficult it can be to describe the characteristics and daily life of someone with Asperger’s syndrome to parents, teachers and especially the child’s peers. That is why I strongly endorse "Hi, My Name is Matt: I have Asperger’s syndrome". Matt’s explanation of his abilities and difficulties perfectly describe the nature of Asperger’s syndrome from the perspective of an eight year old child. The story will be engaging for children to read and provide answers to their questions regarding why someone they know with Asperger’s syndrome is different. This book will be recommended reading for all the children in an elementary school class that has a child with Asperger’s syndrome.

The section for parents, teachers and families provides up to date information that is easy to read and understand. Sometimes having a succinct and clear summary of the characteristics of Asperger’s syndrome is more likely to be read and absorbed than a lengthy textbook that can be somewhat daunting. This is a great book to start the journey of exploring and understanding Asperger’s syndrome."

Professor Tony Attwood
