“Throughout, readers will find excellent examples and solutions to basic problems; also included are numerous instances of older children who went beyond basic communication issues to social situations such as dating, school, living on their own, and employment. Most books on Asperger syndrome/high-functioning autism focus on early intervention and basic skills, but this book offers help for older children and adults as well, making it very valuable. Strongly recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with autism or education collections.”

“The Reason I Jump is a wise, beautiful, intimate and courageous explanation of autism as it is lived every day by one remarkable boy.

I only wish I’d had this book to defend myself when I was Naoki’s age.”—Tim Page, author of Parallel Play and professor of journalism and music at the University of Southern California

“There is no black and white dividing line between geeks, nerds, and the quirky, and mild autism or Asperger’s. A few autistic traits can provide advantages–too many, a handicap. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, and many famous musicians, if they were born today, might well receive an ‘autism’ label in today’s school system. Some kids are just quirky, and 8 Keys to Raising the Quirky Child will help those children succeed.” (Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain and Thinking in Pictures)
