Book...booklet...whatever. It's inexpensive.

Another project we did for Summit Academy Institute ...this was a small 44 page booklet called The Asperger Toolbox, which was designed primarily as a handy resource guide for teachers in the classroom. It wasn't designed as a comprehensive guide to Asperger's Syndrome (a form of high-functioning autism) but it does give teachers a quick reference to the observable behaviors that can help identify the condition, as well as some solid strategies for helping Asperger students function more comfortably in a school environment.

The Institute wanted to use Createspace as a source printer for this item, as the pricing structure for a book this size was better than Lulu, which would have required the book to be priced at a couple of dollars higher. It was really designed to be purchased in quantity, and suitably priced (under $5) as a loss leader...so it follows that the profit margin is very small. The cover design is pretty straightforward, and this should also be the first in a planned series of small handbooks covering practical topics in special education. Availability is scheduled for the end of the month.
