Patron comment on

Very definitely directed at high-functioning end of the spectrum. More for the individual on the spectrum rather than a career practitioner

Some of the tips and guidelines were relevant and useful, but most of them did not apply to me with numeracy and English subject difficulties at school which have recently been diagnosed as 'Aspergers syndrome'.
