"Even after they've learned to talk, children aged 3 to 7 with Asperger syndrome, mild autism or social difficulties face special communication challenges. To have real "talk ability," children have to understand the meaning behind the words by tuning in to the thoughts and feelings of other people. Parents and professionals have long sought a down-to-earth guide on how to help these children develop the people skills that make it possible to engage in real conversations and connect well with others. TalkAbility answers this need with a wealth of practical strategies that parents can build into their child's everyday life." --Back cover.

I have bought about 10 books on autism - I found this book to be the most practical, helpful book for parents of children with language delays related to autism.
