Book Description

15 Mar 2009 Asperger Syndrome After the Diagnosis
'There's a kid at school who gets extra help from a special teacher. He has temper tantrums when he is angry and sometimes finds it hard to pay attention. He might even have been to a special school to learn how to behave appropriately in class. One day this kid started to ask questions like, 'Why do I feel different - am I not like other kids?' This kid might be a little different from others in some ways...but this kid is not stupid! Can you solve the mystery of the special kid?'This book offers a fun and accessible introduction for a child diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS).Intended as a support tool in the initial period after diagnosis, "A Special Book About Me" is varied and engaging, and addresses questions or concerns that the child might have, such as 'What are the characteristics of AS?', 'Why did it happen to me?', and 'What happens now?'. Also included are poems, stories, illustrations and activities to help them come to terms with and move forward from a diagnosis of AS. "A Special Book About Me" will be essential reading for children in the initial period after a diagnosis of AS.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really what I wanted 20 July 2010
By Free Spirit VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son is a 9 year old with autism. He has recently been asking "am I different?" and I have been at a loss to help him understand his condition. I bought this book because I thought it may help me to explain. He also has other issues and is struggling to learn to read and write.

This book is great at explaining the condition in a simplistic way but the plain text and lack of illustrations let it down. As I said before, my son is struggling to read so for me to read it to him and help him to focus, illustrations would definately have helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have 27 Jun 2014
By NickyM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book for my child to give her when I explained her diagnosis. Came in very handy and really helped her to understand and grasp what I was telling her (she is 12). I went through it with her and read aloud and she was saying "Yes", "No", "A little bit" to the things I was reading out for signs of Aspergers. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless! 24 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
This little book is clear, insightful and invaluable when looking to explain to a child/young person-or a family member-how the condition affects all aspects if their life, without being scary or patronising. Priceless, highly recommend it!
