Living with Asperger Syndrome

By Joan Gomez
Out of Stock
Support for those with a family member on the autistic spectrum. Asperger syndrome, which affects communication and social interaction, is a neurological disorder which is believed to affect more than 200,000 people in the UK. Unlike others on the autistic spectrum, those with Asperger syndrome often want to communicate, and to share their lives, but don't know how. This book looks at how families with an "Aspie" can help them be accepted for what they are, to lead full lives and to make the most of their unique gifts. It explains the common signs of Asperger syndrome in babies and young children, and gives advice to parents on how to overcome any difficulties at school that an older child might face. Advice is also given on the vulnerable teenage years and how to promote relationships with others. This book also looks at the historical background to this disorder, and at great thinkers with Asperger type characteristics, including Einstein.
