Tony Attwoods guide will assist parents and professionals with the identification, treatment and care of both children and adults with Aspergers Syndrome. The book provides a description and analysis of the unusual characteristics of the syndrome and practical strategies to reduce those that are most conspicuous or debilitating. Beginning with a chapter on diagnosis, including an assessment test, the book covers all aspects of the syndrome from language to social behaviour and motor clumsiness, concluding with a chapter based on the questions most frequently asked by those who come into contact with individuals with this syndrome. Covering the available literature in full, this guide brings together the most relevant and useful information on Aspergers Syndrome, incorporating case studies from the authors own practical experience as a Clinical Psychologist, with examples of, and numerous quotations from people with Aspergers Syndrome. Review … it describes the syndrome and its practical implications better than any other I have seen. I can only quote Lorna Wings praise for Tony Attwoods leap into the minds of people with Aspergers syndrome in the introduction…this is the book for giving to parents and professionals in the field for understanding the syndrome and its implications. In my practice, I place considerable emphasis on helping parents and professionals to understand Aspergers syndrome and by using this understanding to work with affected individuals. I strongly recommend this book as an adjunct to diagnostic explanations and discussions of the syndromes implications. For the practising clinician working with individuals with Aspergers syndrome this book is a must. -- Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry Aspergers Syndrome provides much helpful information about the characteristics of this disorder and strategies for learning skills acquired so easily by others, but with much difficulty by the person with AS. It is an excellent guide that does not rely on scientific terminology for explanations. Chapters on social behaviour, language, interests, routines, physical clumsiness, cognition and sensory sensitivity are written in a very basic language, yet they are quite detailed and informative. Each chapter includes a brief and handy summary of strategies both parents and teachers will find helpful when dealing with children with this disorder. -- NAMI Advocate Attwood injects a positive note about people with this puzzling syndrome and I found his depth of knowledge and practical experience of people with Aspergers Syndrome, as a parent, a very positive outlook…The section on Frequently asked Questions was better than having a private consultation with a specialist and gave one the sensation of being part of a well informed support group. -- Journal of Learning Disabilities for Nursing, Health and Social Care One of the leading figures on the lecture circuit, Attwood has written extensively on Aspergers Syndrome and HFA. Despite age, this book still offers tremendous insight into the identification and treatment of children on the higher functioning end of ASD…essential for libraries. -- Library Journal Tony Attwood is not only an inspiring presenter; he is also an inspiring writer. Tony you have done it again! You have produced another bestseller on Aspergers syndrome. Tonys new book, The Complete Guide to Asperger, is indeed a book for anyone who has an interest or passion in understanding how individuals with Aspergers Syndrome view the neurotypical world. Tony integrates research and practice, highlighting key issues with an abundance of insightful contributions from people with Aspergers Syndrome. His eloquent style of writing is both informative and entertaining. -- Professor Verity Bottroff, School of Medicine, Flinders University, Adelaide, S.A Tony Attwoods empathy, knowledge and common-sense approach to describing individuals with Aspergers syndrome, hig
