Author Robert J. Bernstein has found a different approach based on cognition thinking in helping people of all ages with ASD. The author's goal is for people with ASD to be able to live in the world and connect with the people in it as themselves, to express their unique humanity and engage more fully in the human interactions that give life meaning and make it worth the effort of getting out of bed every day. He believes that whatever he does therapeutically must be on the ASD individual’s terms; he or she must lead. His therapy examples are categorized by age groups of: two to five years of age, six to 10 years of age, 11 to 14 years of age, and 19 years of age and up.

"Robert Bernstein is one of the smartest, most perceptive people I know. No matter where someone falls on the scale of 'normal,' Bernstein finds a way to connect." (Will Shortz, Crossword Editor, The New York Times)

"I’m really excited. I’m totally blown away. It’s fantastic. There’s such hope, more than hope, already I see it working. It is unbelievable. Everything is possible. Thank you." (Eileen Fisher, talking about her son)

Senior in HS never had a friend

This book was very illuminating! We just started working work Mr. Bernstein for help with social skills as my son has never had a friend and is finally expressing the desire to make one! I loved everything in the book because some of the examples reminded me of how far we have come already and others provider practical ways I can help my son through these next steps in life. I highly recommend not only listening to this book but reaching out to the author for help.
