This website is a wealth of information for individuals new to the topics of
autism and Asperger Syndrome. Even though the authors state that the site is
designed to help teachers gain knowledge about the students they are teaching,
it would also be very informative for parents, siblings, and other students who
have individuals with autism in their lives.
