Good solid information. I really liked hearing about the different types of disabilities and their causes and delays. It was interesting to hear from someone who has an autistic daughter, their learning curves along the way of raising their daughter were very heart stirring to hear. The young man I support is autistic so this was especially interesting to me.

The section on Autism, in particular, was very enlightening. Research has come a long way in the last 40 years. The information on handling seizures was very appreciated as I haven't dealt with that before and this new knowledge will be very helpful in the event that I do in the future.
