Review

This is a very well presented and readable book. It not only puts a very human perspective on the behaviours, feelings, and thinking of those with Asperger's syndrome, but also gives a very comprehensive account of the statistical, theoretical, and professional aspects of me condition... I found this book difficult to put down once I began to read it. It grounded my theoretical knowledge of Asperger's syndrome and provided me with a level of insight that I did not have previously. There is no doubt thatAsperger's syndrome and Bullying: Strategies and Solutions is a must for the educational psychologist. It contains a wealth of information and a practical toolkit for addressing bullying, and at a very low cost. -- Debate This is a very well presented and readable book.

Nick Dubin succeeds in using the insights gained from his experience (he was diagnosed with Aserger's syndrome in 2004) of support and provides greater understanding of the complexity of Asperger's syndrome, while at the same time maintaining the degree of professional detachment necessary to ensure that this book is a useful working document...

Mr Dubin's abundant stories illustrating how people with AS perceive and experience their environment are a brilliant window into the inner life of children with AS. His perspective is a gift of empathy and understanding that transcends the subject of bullying and would benefit every teacher, parent and professional. -- Autism Asperger's Digest Nick Dubins Book on bullying and Asperger Syndrome is an interesting read for therapist with experience of Asperger Syndrome and working with school-aged pupils. It will deepen your understanding and awareness of the issues and provide useful strategies to pass on to teaching staff. Many of Nick's ideas can be incorporated within social skills therapy to develop assertiveness skills and social understanding. Parents may also wish to read the book and will particularly enjoy the sections aimed directly at them. Bullying is an important topic and the book will be a valuable addition to your library. -- Speech & Language Therapy in Practice This book offers individuals with AS who are being bullied the opportunity to see that they are not alone, and it is an invaluable source of advice for parents, teachers, professionals and personnel managers. -- Autism Us Written in an accessible style by someone who has AS and has experienced bullying. Not only for people who have this syndrome, but also all those who support and work with them. -- Current Awareness Service Combining personal life experiences and those of others along with the acumen of a researcher, Nick Dubin introduces the reader to how the characteristics of Asperger Syndrome interplay with the social environment that makes these children and adults targets of bullying. In addition to clearly depicting the extent of the irreparable harm caused by bullying, he tells us how easily to recognize and stop this destructive behavior at the individual, in the classroom, and at school wide levels. -- Stephen M. Shore, Board of Directors of the Autism Society of America, the Asperger's Association of New England, and other related organizations Not only will Asperger Syndrome and Bullying help former victims piece together the "why"s and "how"s of prior trauma, but educational professionals also are served well to read this book. For giving them much to choose from, Dubin meticulously outlines (and provides commentary on) every available community-based strategy and school program designed to combat those atmospheres that condone bullying. His book is a wonderful addition to the growing literature currently investigating the environment of bullying, the culture of bullying, and the myths we once believed about it. Asperger Syndrome and Bullying serves as a great sociological analysis, yes, but readers are provided an added layer - hearing a writer heal before our eyes. -- from the Foreword by Michael John Carley, executive director of GRASP, The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership Bullying can be a problem in most schools, even in those with zero tolerance outlook and a good anti-bullying programme. Children with special needs are particularly prone to be targets of bullies, as they are already 'different' from their peers. In this well written. well-researched book, the author's first hand experience, his insight and his common-sense approach to the varied ways in which bullying becomes evident, add up to a volume well worth reading. Dubin lists teachers, administrators, employers and employees as bullies in addition to peer group bullies at school,. He gives clear examples of how child with Asperger's Syndrome finds it difficult to understand social interaction, the intentions of others, the facial expressions. and off hand comments that other children take for granted. This is an excellent starting point for an in-service workshop on bullying, and would be particularly useful in a school practising inclusive education where children on the autistic spectrum are part of the student body. -- School Librarian Journal Power imbalances underlie bullying and this book goes some way to empowering victims, bystanders, parents and schools, thereby helping to redress this balance. The author draws on his personal experience as a youngster with (then undiagnosed) Asperger's Syndrome, as well as his later professional experiences, to write passionately about bullying, its significant and often long-term effects, and what can be done about it. Chapters on why children with Asperger's often present as easy targets for bullying and victimisation, ways in which adults and school staff can be be bullies too and why bullies and bystanders may act as they do increase awareness and understanding of these issues. Strategies that individuals, parents and schools can implement to deal with bullies are also described, and these may apply equally to students with or without Asperger's Syndrome. -- Youth in Mind I would recommend this book to anyone working with people with Asperger syndrome and not just where bullying has been identified as a problem. Useful pointers in how to talk and communicate are provided -- Drama Therapy

This has a decent overview of what it's like for a child with Asperger's in secondary schools,and the bullying experienced - but it is a bit dated now. Lots of new research has been carried out on inclusion and its benefits, and there is a better awareness of ASD in schools these days with more training. This does not mean that the problem is fixed - there are still too many teachers who just don't 'get' kids with ASD. Hopefully the Dept of Education announcement that from 2018 all trainee teachers much learn specifically about ASD as part of their training will help. Since this book was published diagnosis guidelines have changed and there should be no new diagnosis of Aspergers, as these children will now be diagnosed as ASD (from Spring 2015), so the title of this book will be less relevant to the new generation of children with ASD who are high functioning, but the content is just as relevant If you're doing research into this area then you really need something more up to date. If you're just looking for a bit of background reading into ASD, or trying to understand it from a child's perspective, then this would be good enough especially if you can get it at a knock-down used price as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars empowering 1 Feb. 2012
By B. Brock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 12 year old aspergers child has been bullied mercilessly in middle school. I feel empowered as a parent to help him and he feels empowered about what he can do. When we were talking about the different ideas in the book he sighed and said,"I feel like I can do something about this now." Never thought about the importance of the bystander (his twin brother) as a means of stopping the bullying.

My only complaint is that there are too few of suggestions for my son to do. There are more than any other resource I have read.

Most bullying books gives you the typical definitions and explanations of why kids bully and what the school can do and how to talk nice to the bully with the hopes of stopping. This one gives the Aspergers child options and help. I'm going to get the book he references, can't find the actual title right now, but it is "Geeks, Freaks, and ......"

Can't say enough great things about this book.

I thought this was more of what to do when your asperger child is perceived as the bully. This was a valuable resource for our social skills group though for other moms - just not what I needed
5.0 out of 5 stars An intimate account of suffering: his pain for our help 3 Oct. 2011
By cpo5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nick Dubin presents an intimate account of what it is to be in the center of misunderstanding/intolerance. Having only read the first 2 chapters (thus far as of this writing), I am immediately drawn to the personal torture of a child's every day life in this world that we "school." I hope that through Dubin's solutions for bullying, I can be an active advocate for my own child who, too, suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. Dubin's book should be a top reference for educators and psychologists when trying to understand this small piece of the autism spectrum.
