Asperger Syndrome: An Owner's Manual Volume 2 for Older Adolescents and Adults is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Asperger Syndrome--An Owner's Manual, which was primarily designed for middle school-age children. The second volume is modeled after its predecessor insofar as it offers information about Asperger Syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders in a respectful and positive manner. This interactive workbook deals with issues that young adults and adults face such as relationships, marriage, independent living skills, employment, self-care and executive functioning. This much-needed resource is designed to inform and support the individual with AS as he or she comes to grips with her strengths and challenges and plans for a successful adulthood within the neurotypical world. Asperger Syndrome: An Owner's Manual Volume 2 for Older Adolescents and Adults presents AS as a “way of being” rather than solely as a “deficit” or “deficiency.” This approach itself is encouraging and empowering. This practical workbook guides users through a process of self-discovery that allows them to understand how AS affects their daily lives. This information is then utilized to create plans and strategies customized to meet the unique needs of the user in an effort to reach self-set goals.
