I picked up this book as a reference read for toddlers and their speech issues. The book opens up a completely different perspective about how we see toddlers. The highly intelligent toddler who shows symptoms similar to that of autistic one – is the main theme of the book. I highly recommend it to any parent who has a late talking child. It helps you to get a new perspective. On the other side, the book is a perfectly painted picture of a intelligent kid, that any parent of an autistic kid wants to embrace. So this book should never be used as a sole guide.
