Book - A 5 Is Against the Law! Social Boundaries: Straight Up! An Honest Guide for Teens and Young Adults.

by: Kari Dunn Buron

About the author:
Since 1995, I have been employing young adults with Asperger Syndrome at my summer camp. Over that time period, one young man was fired from his job for stalking a coworker, one young man was fired for having a tantrum on the job, and a young woman had her driver's license taken away because of road rage. In addition, in recent years, while working with students K-12, I have saw a dramatic increase in the numbers of students with Asperger Syndrome who were being referred to sexual offender programs for sexual harassment. In all cases, issues of social skills, especially boundaries, were both. And in all cases, both parents and teachers were desperate for a method that could effectively teach these students the basics of social boundaries.
I wrote my new book, A 5 Is Against the Law! with these individuals in mind. I am hopeful that professionals and parents will use the book as a workbook either 1:1 or in small groups. The approach used puts grey thinking social information, which poses special challenges for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, into a black-and-white systematic format for clearer understanding. In addition, the book directly relates the person's behavior to possible outcomes that could affect personal freedom in hopes of increasing his or her motivation to learn.

The ultimate objective of this approach is for readers to better understand how their personal behavior impacts how others perceive and judge them, and how that judgment, fair or not, can impact their lives.

Book - Can I Tell You About Asperger Syndrome? A Guide for Family and Friends

by: Jude Welton

About the author:
I had this book recommended to me by a professional when we were going through the diagnosis process. It is simply written and easy for anyone of any age to understand. My 9-year-old with A.S. felt relieved when he read it because he could relate to Adam in the story and I believe this book helped him understand himself better. We are now reading it with our 7-year-old, who had noticed his brother was different than he is. This book is written in simple enough language to help him understand his brother. The adults I have shared it with have also found it helpful.
When you're faced with this diagnosis there are many great books you can read, but there is so much information to absorb it is easy to feel overwhelmed. This book keeps it simple enough to absorb the main points. Adam, the boy in the book, also tells readers that although there are many characteristics of A.S. they do not apply to every individual with Asperger's. For example he explains that he is bothered by loud noises, but others may be bothered by the feel of certain fabrics against their skin.

I highly recommend this book to anyone starting to learn about Asperger's Syndrome and/or looking for a good book to share with others.
