The site consisted of a front page with several links to Dr. Ozbyrak's writing
on aperger's. The information was very well written, very clear and very
understandable to anyone from a layperson to a professional therapist.

I am not sure that use of this website would enhance a student's learning or a
faculty's teaching. It would be a good reference for a paper, but it is
extremely specific and does not link to other sites regarding Asperger's or
spychology in general.

Technical Remarks:

The page setup is very basic. Once click takes you to the essay, and one click
takes you back home. There is no navigation available within the site, but no
reason to navigate either.
