Editorial Reviews


Score! Jennifer Cook O'Toole wins again with The Asperkid's Game Plan, and so do we - the teachers, parents, and clinicians who are looking for ways to be better communicators and educators for our Asperkids. Every child wants to learn, especially those on the autism spectrum, and it's up to us to reach and teach them using methods that will foster their unique abilities and learning strengths. O'Toole's 'Game Plan' is insightful, empowering, and packed full of 'purposeful play' activities that are easy to do and mind-blowingly fun! -- Jodi Murphy, founder of Geek Club Books and mother of an Asperkid

With the precision of a scientist combined with the artistry of an experienced educator, Jennifer O'Toole has crafted a game changer of a curriculum in the holistic education of children (of all ages!) on the autism spectrum. "Standard" school subjects are seamlessly integrated with developing greater understanding of the self and the universe surrounding us all. This resource is invaluable to anyone wanting direct instruction in successfully educating those with autism - and everyone else as well. -- Stephen M. Shore, Ed.D., Assistant Professor of Special Education at Adelphi University and internationally renowned author, consultant and presenter on issues related to autism

Jennifer O'Toole's new book The Asperkid's Game Plan is loaded with fun and educational activities that will keep your child engaged at home, in the car, and on those long, boring vacation drives. Jennifer outlines different learning styles so that the reader can assess their own child to find the right activities that will help with such things as attention, reciprocity, sensory issues, auditory processing and identifying emotions. In each chapter she targets a specific psycho-social skill with a fun activity using every day materials from your own home. The Asperkid's Game Plan is a well-thought out book that presents an alternative to tedious exercises. Suggestions for academic and educational reinforcement are included. The beautiful colors and layout of the book presents a delightful, instructive book that will benefit any child. -- Debra Houssini, parent and founder of The Art of Autism

Jennifer O'Toole has created a colorful and brilliant work of genius. Therapists of all disciplines will cherish this book. It is a must-buy for every clinic! Jennifer has broken down each awesome activity into its component skills so you don't have to when treatment planning! It is guaranteed to spark creativity while teaching skills for success! What could be better than pairing fun activities with learning? A definite must-read. -- Cara Koscinski, occupational therapist, author of The Pocket Occupational Therapist for Families of Children with Special Needs and mother to two children with autism

This is a companion volume to the author's excellent The Asperkid's Launch Plan and is another veritable treasure trove of ideas, this time over one hundred engaging, purposeful play activities to use with young aspies, all of them designed to make learning fun.
There are activities for team building - something aspies have to work hard at, activities to develop listening skills, activities to help in the development of relationships and emotional awareness, others to encourage flexible thinking and problem solving. All are written by a mother and educationalist who herself has aspergers; they are so enjoyable they can also be used with neuro-typical children.

-- Red Reading Hub blog by Jill Bennett

Jennifer Cooke O'Toole has previously worked as a social worker and a teacher... she herself has Asperger's Syndrome, as does her husband, and their three young children. It is this personal experience which particularly comes out in her writing and causes this book to stand out from other books on this subject... The main aim of this book is (...) to offer practical ways of helping children with Asperger's to begin to process and understand abstract ideas such as teamwork, anxiety management, communication and emotional awareness... This is done through using concrete, real things that can be seen, touched an smelt... The book is well presented... Would make a useful addition to a play therapist's shelf... Anyone working with children with Asperger's would find it a useful book to be able to really grasp what it is like to live with Asperger's Syndrome. -- Helen Beckett, PTUK Accredited Play Therapist and Editor, Play for Life

Smart. Lively. Cheeky. A global conversation-starter with a doppleganger Sesame Street muppet. That’s Jennifer O’Toole, author of the &quot;Asperkids&quot; series and “Sisterhood of the Spectrum,” the award-winning, best-selling autism-related book collection in the world, and the highly-anticipated “Autism in Heels: The Untold Story of a Female Life of the Spectrum,” already named a “Top Amazing Feminist Book of 2018,” received a starred review from Booklist, and is an Amazon #1 New Release.

At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer O’Toole was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (autism), just after her three young children had been similarly identified. It was 2011, and for the first time in her life, things made sense.

They made so much sense, in fact, that now, Jennifer is the winner of the Autism Society of America’s 2014 Outstanding Literary Work of the Year and the 2012 Temple Grandin Award for Outstanding Global Contributions, was named one of the 50 Most Influential Women in North Carolina and 25 Most Amazing Autistic Women, is a recipient of GRASP’s Distinguished Spectrumite Parenting Medal and the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Women Inspiring Hope and Strength Award, was named AuKids Speaker of the Year, and has been celebrated by Disney’s Babble and The Mighty. She is “Ask the Expert” columnist for, a featured columnist for Spectrum Woman Magazine, sits on the Professional Panel of the Autism Society of America, and is a go-to editorialist/columnist for Amy Poehler’s girl-power juggernaut, “Smart Girls at the Party.”

From her own struggles and self-discovery, Jennifer has built an empire of empowerment. She’s been invited to speak on Capitol Hill, and to the President’s Council on Fitness at the White House Summit on Americans with Disabilities, was the Guest of Honor of Their Royal Highnesses, the UK’s Princess Sophie and Princess Marie of Denmark. She and was added to the “Who’s Who” list of International Aspie Mentors — along with Temple Grandin and Stephen Shore – to contribute to Dr. Tony Attwood’s “Been There. Done That. Try This.” anthology. Jennifer’s unique “have a cup of coffee with me” conversationalist presentation of useful insights has touched hearts, lightened spirits, and broadened minds around the world.
