    This book is RICH with material for working on higher level language goals-from multiple meaning words to ambiguous sentences, humor, sarcasm and more! It's nice to have it all in one place. This is a great resource for anyone working with older kids on the autism spectrum. It gives you tons of ways to talk to them about "hidden messages" and drawing inferences at the conversational level.

    I love the way this book is set up. It is easy for the children to manipulate and the examples are appropriate for the middle school aged students. The children on the autism spectrum can do each task and the language used helps them get the inferences without frustration.
