New HL3 Manual for Parents and Teachers by Dr. Treffert!!

We are thrilled to share this!! Dr. Treffert has published an HL3 manual to help parents and teachers when helping an HL3 child. I'm also receiving more feedback from parents about how HL3 is becoming slightly more familiar and the specialists are trying to veer away from just using the ASD diagnosis.  Although even then they are not really using the HL3 term.  But we will keep spreading the word and I hope you do too!
