Francis Musgrave is the founder of AS Active, a social enterprise set up for families of children with Classic Autism and Asperger Syndrome (AS). AS Active aims to provide children on the Autistic Spectrum with a network of peers to play, learn and connect with, and to provide their parents or carers with some valuable time to themselves. The activities in this toolkit were developed at AS Active, with the input of clinical professionals. Francis lives in Worcestershire, UK. For more information about AS Active, please visit www.asactive.org or follow AS Active on Facebook and Twitter.

It also suitable for use in schools and could be used for groups of AS children and neuro-typicals. -- asteens In an introduction to parents, this book explains the AS Active Approach, "A collection of ideas and principles: Working together as a team, Building on success, Having fun together, and Refresh and Renewal".

The language of the book, while very clear, s sophisticated, and some interpretation may be needed. As the book is designed to be used with a parent or carer, this should not be a problem. The layout is amusing and well defined and makes the book enjoyable to use. -- Healthy Books
