    OMG, how are we going to pick! They all sound good to me. Someone make a
    decision! *I might not enjoy the one on Autism....as I write this one of
    my students with autism is screaming and throwing things at the children
    napping. I have taught both spe and regular 25 years, got out of spe two
    years ago because I was burned out on autism, changed schools and the
    last two years at my new school was given three children with autism who
    were very severe because they heard "I was good with autism". But any
    other book sounds great......This weekend if no one has made a decision,
    I will look over what everyone has suggested and pick one! How wonderful
    to have "book" teacher/girlfriends. Jo do you remember me, you sent me a
    jigsaw puzzle in a golden apples gift exchange years ago! Bo
