Getting to Grips with Asperger Syndrome: Understanding Adults on the Autism Spectrum

Getting to Grips with Asperger Syndrome is a practical, problem-solving guide for those caring for or supporting an adult with Asperger Syndrome (AS). It will help them understand the condition and the difficulties it may cause, so that they can offer support in the most beneficial way.

The book explains what AS is and why certain behaviours frequently occur: such as anxiety, fear of change and unusual sensitivities. Once behaviours and reactions are understood, many of the apparent problems become less troublesome, and difficulties can be avoided or easily-resolved. Practical strategies are offered to combat problems that may arise, and common issues that specifically occur with individuals diagnosed later in life are addressed.
By Carol Hagland


Easy-to-read and accessible, this book is a useful reference for friends and family of individuals with AS, as well as professionals working with them and students, whatever the level of training and experience.
