Description:

A Self-Determined Future with Asperger Syndrome presents an empowering, practical approach to helping people with Asperger Syndrome (AS) to succeed at college, at work, at home and in life.
The authors highlight how treating AS as a `problem’ is unproductive, and advocate a solution focused approach which recognizes and uses the strengths of people with AS to foster mutual respect and understanding.
Drawing on both their personal experience and knowledge of counselling, the authors use anecdotes and stories to show how people with AS cope in day-to-day situations. They also illustrate how effective communication and understanding of a person’s needs and goals are key to improving daily life for people with AS. The final section of the book comprises practical worksheets and resources to help people with AS to recognize their achievements and work towards their goals.
This book will be of interest to people who are affected by AS, their families, and the people who work with them.

Reviews:

The book benefits from being co-written by someone with a diagnosis of AS and a psychologist. Their combined experiences and expertise have allowed them to write a very insightful account of how people with AS manage in their day-to-day life in a neurotypical… the style in which the book is written makes it accessible to professionals and lay people alike. It should provide an interesting read for all those who have contact with people with AS whether in a personal or professional capacity and give excellent insight into the world as viewed by those with AS.
