Yeah!  My book arrived.  I am so excited.  The book “The Aspie Teen Survival Guide”  is written by Jeff Kraus.  He was diagnosed in elementary school.  So, far I have read two chapters.  The second chapter discusses school issues and some IEP accommodations.   I loved some of his ideas for test taking such as, white paper, no pop quizzes, three day notice for exams, alternative testing environment and the ability to retake a test if the student fails.  In addition, Kraus discusses how students who feel they are not ready for that test, should be able to request additional study time (like the next day).
