If a child you love has Asperger Syndrome, you need this book.
Ten-to-eighteen year olds face many challenges, and adolescents with AS can have special difficulty navigating through the changes they encounter when they reach middle school. Friends, crushes, schoolwork-the day-to-day lives of teens present complicated issues. Child psychologist and AS specialist Teresa Bolick has solutions for overcoming the obstacles kids with AS face.

Packed with practical advice and full of inspiring stories, Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence will be your guidebook as you help a teen with AS down the path toward happiness and success. You’ll learn effective techniques for raising a self-sufficient, self-confident teen, and will find inspiration in the dozens of success stories Dr. Bolick shares.





This book is organized and very readable. Each section discusses an area where a person with Asperger’s Syndrome might have a deficit/challenge. For each “problem” area, there is a short clinical discussion of what the deficiency means (for example, what the heck is “executive function”), then a practical description of how this difficulty might manifest itself in behavior (difficulty with performing particular tasks), and finally some ways that the parent/teacher/other might help the youngster work through or around the problem. This book is my current favorite, as my 11 year old son moves from the shelter of elementary school into the more open middle school environment. The book addresses social skills, academic skills, and has lots of ideas for when and how to help (or keep out of the way!) your child. One section that really impressed me is about special interests, rituals, and routines… The author emphasizes that these need not be viewed as obssessions, compulsions, and rigidity of behavior!
