SDS 很適合用來幫助正在規劃生涯的青少年。不過SDS用於本土有兩大限制。第一， SDS 是用英文寫的，雖然文字不算太深，但很多青少年可能對英語版本有實際困難和心理障礙。 第二，SDS的設計是以美國的職業系統為基礎，因此用於香港一個不同的文化和職業系統，其應用必受限制。

In this book, Eric Chen explains how he stepped out of the limits imposed by autism without professional therapy and biomedical treatment. Eric is an odd boy who sleepwalked through his life in Singapore, unaware of feelings and human relationships. After the formal diagnosis of autism in 2001, he was relieved to know of the reason for his differences. He wrote this book wishing to demystify autism and inspire the world. As he stated in the preface, “I present with this book, the insights that I had won with my sweat and tears.” Hope that you could share Eric’s sweat and tears through reading his heart.
