Coulter Video has been very active in producing DVDs to support families and individuals with autism and Asperger syndrome (AS). The Coulters have a son with Asperger's, and Dan was recently diagnosed. Coulter introduces us to six adults with AS who are working in diverse occupations, including a veterinarian's assistant and a library page. Both the employees with AS and their supervisors comment on workplace skills, living accommodations, interpersonal relations, and the job search interview. Most interesting are the candid discussions about coping mechanisms people with AS use in order to be successful in the workplace. This excellent film would make a valuable reference tool with its well-designed menu that allows viewers to jump to specific sections. Strongly recommended for all public and business libraries; may be used successfully by both employees and employers.—Corey Seeman, Kresge Business Administration Lib., Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor
