This expanded edition of the bestselling AAPC classic offers both parents and professionals tried-and-true solutions to minimize and circumvent the often frightening circumstances that surround the rage cycle not only for the child with Asperger Syndrome but others in the environment as well. In addition to almost doubling the section on interventions, this highly practical and user-friendly resource also focuses on the reactions of the adults around the child. This detailed book takes the reader through the stages of the rage cycle and emphasizes the importance of utilizing the teachable moments before and after a rage episode.



1. An Overview of the Characteristics 2. Tantrums, Rage and Meltdown 3. Functional Assessment of Behavior 4. Strategies that Promote Self-Awarness, Self-Calming and Self-Management 5. Specifically for parents



Parents, educators and people on the autism/Asperger’s spectrum will get a lot of mileage out of this excellent book. It is written in a plain, straight-forward style that clearly describes the behaviors that are often associated with a/A. I like the way the authors don’t make light of meltdowns and explain what often triggers them. I also like the straight-forward direct approach they take in helping others cope with, and, in cowpoke parlance, head meltdowns off at the pass. This is a book that many will find helpful and power packed with invaluable information.
