Parenting a Child With Asperger Syndrome

by Brenda Boyd - £12.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843101376 | ISBN 10: 1843101378

For parents of children with Asperger Syndrome ordinary parenting just doesn't always do it - AS kids need a different approach. Brenda is mother to thirteen-year-old Kenneth, author of Asperger Syndrome, the Universe and Everything, and since his diagnosis at the age of eight she has gathered together the parenting ideas and tips that have had a positive effect on Kenneth's life.
 
Brenda discusses parents' reaction to their child's AS and gives advice on how better to understand 'Planet Asperger'. This book helps parents to respond positively to the challenge of AS and find the 'treasure' in their child's way of being.

"This book is brilliant. I've read it through, re-read sections and still want to pick it up and dip into it. The approach is very refreshing - easy to read, practical and realistic... So many parents are going to breathe a sigh of relief when they read this book."
(Julie Connell, Educational Psychologist)
