The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome is the definitive handbook for anyone affected by Asperger's syndrome. It brings together a wealth of information on all aspects of the syndrome for children through to adults.

Drawing on case studies and personal accounts from Attwood's extensive clinical experience, and from his correspondence with individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, this book is both authoritative and extremely accessible. The chapters examine: causes and indications of the syndrome; the diagnosis and its effect on the individual; theory of mind; the perception of emotions in self and others; social interaction, including friendships; long-term relationships; teasing, bullying and mental health issues; the effect of Asperger's Sydrome on language and cognitive abilities, sensory sensitivity, movement and co-ordination skills; and, career development.

There is also an invaluable frequently asked questions chapter and a section listing useful resources for anyone wishing to find further information on a particular aspect of Asperger's Syndrome, as well as literature and educational tools.

Essential reading for families and individuals affected by Asperger's Syndrome as well as teachers, professionals and employers coming in contact with people with Asperger's Syndrome, this book should be on the bookshelf of anyone who needs to know or is interested in this complex condition.
