This book offers a comprehensive overview of clinical, research and personal perspectives on Asperger Syndrome, including contributions from parents and experts in the fields of psychology, social work, psychiatry, genetics, sexology and vocational counselling.
It includes first-hand accounts from adults with AS, highlighting their difficulties in areas such as social competence and education. Specialist perspectives on AS, including sexuality and relationships, finding and keeping employment and anxiety and depression are sensitively addressed. The viewpoints of parents explore experiences of parenting AS individuals. These varied approaches to living with AS complement the emerging literature on theory, research and practice in this area.
The broad scope of Children, Youth and Adults with Asperger Syndrome guarantees a wide readership among practitioners, students, parents, young people and adults with AS, educates service providers how to assist people with AS and suggests a model of interdisciplinary collaboration for administrators and funders.

This new emphasis in the field on the more able group with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is an important one for researchers and practitioners so this comprehensive book is a welcome addition to the literature. The editor has assembled a distinguished group of contributors, representing a wide range of disciplines and perspectives. The result is a comprehensive volume that adds immeasurably to our understanding of theory and practice in this important area. Although the contributors are primarily Canadian, their themes and reputations are international, and readers will appreciate the multitude of experiences they bring to these important issues. Clinical practice is highlighted but there is a solid section on theoretical perspectives as well. Of particular interest to many are the personal perspectives of individuals with ASD and their parents. The book will be of interest to parents, professionals, academics, and everyone else affected by or interested in ASD. It is a welcome addition to the literature and the editor and contributor are to be thanked for their efforts. – Gary B.
