Asperger Syndrome an Owner's Manual: What You, Your Parents and Your Teachers Need to Know
"An Owner's Manual" is an interactive workbook designed for young people grades 5 through 8 for use with guidance from a helping adult. Astutely written to be understood by these particular adolescents, "An Owner's Manual" describes what Asperger Syndrome is and how it can affect daily life. With the help of a trusted adult, the child completes a series of exercises related to learning style, sensory issues, emotions, relationships, and more, culminating in a written plan for each major area of his life that will serve as a constant guide and reinforcement. "An Owner's Manual" is designed to be used at different times throughout the child's life, including diagnosis and when problems arise. This unique workbook not only reassures the young person that the things he is struggling with can improve, but also empowers him by providing a chance to identify his needs and to participate in developing interventions and future planning.
