Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence

Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence

Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence is an excellent book that fills a long-standing and sorely felt need. The subtitle, "practical solutions for school success", tells the story and guarantees that this book will be eagerly sought and frequently consulted. An outstanding achievement.' - Bernard Rimland, Director, Autism Research Institute, USA 'In Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence, Myles and Adreon have presented us with an excellent overview of the challenges that many learners with AS face as they enter their teens. But perhaps most important, they offer an array of practical, proven interventions to help address these challenges. This is a welcome addition to the literature.' - Peter Gerhardt, Research Assistant Professor and Division Director, Rutgers University 'A stunningly accurate portrayal of the challenges adolescents with Asperger Syndrome face in school. Of at least equal importance, this "must have" resource is jam-packed with sensible and easy-to-implement solutions for teachers, aides, parents and others who will ultimately give these emerging adults the tools they need to navigate through the turbulent middle and high school years and beyond.' - Stephen M. Shore, author of Beyond the Wall: Personal Experience with Autism and Asperger Syndrome 'Finally, a book about older students with Asperger Syndrome and one that moves beyond describing this complex syndrome ... It is a book that educators and parents will refer to again and again as they help students with AS navigate the complex demands of the adolescent experience' - Michael Alessandri, Director, University of Miami Center for Autism and Related Disabilities 'This book addresses one of the most burning issues in working with adolescents with Asperger Syndrome: All the supports and strategies that must be in place to help them survive the middle and high school years. As such it is a "must read" for parents and educators alike. Among the supports and strategies discussed, the section on stabilization was particularly helpful. The use of authentic voices in the last chapter validates the message of this important book.' - Elisa Gagnon, author of This Is Asperger Syndrome The middle school years, pose challenges for all young people. In this comprehensive and thorough book, the authors start with an overview of those characteristics of AS that make adolescence particularly challenging and difficult. Central to the book is a detailed discussion of strategies and supports necessary to ensure a successful school experience for students with AS at the middle and secondary levels. What sets this book apart is the way it ties all the recommended strategies together in a real-life case study of Michael, a youth with AS. This touch of real life continues in the closing chapter, which consists of statements by parents and adolescents with Asperger Syndrome about the transition years. This book is critical reading for everybody who lives or works with an adolescent with Asperger Syndrome.
