I had to order this book for a class. There is nothing in it that makes it worth $135. I kept waiting for the life-changing information, but it just wasn't there. It is not worth keeping. Rent or borrow if you can

Book was as described, no surprises... but for some reason after a couple of times being used the binding ripped and it's no longer attached at the mid-seam... strange...

Superficial, lacking depth, not nearly enough information about intellectual disabilities themselves.
