The teenage years are simultaneously shared by teens and their parents.

Damian was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of five. Now he's in college and ready to share his experiences with teens who are experiencing what he lived through.
Asperger Download is a helpful resource for adolescents and young adults that takes defining terms like acne and zits to the next level. First Damien defines the term in a voice that other AS teens can relate to. Then Josie describes the term or concept from a parent's point of view.

It is proof that with a little understanding and preparation, navigating through the teenage years can be a smoother ride.
