Editorial Reviews


From A to Z, Damian, a person with Asperger Syndrome, and his mother team up to present the 'straight scoop' on some of the most perplexing aspects of successful transition to adulthood for those of us with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning autism. Thank you for providing a lucid and clear window into our world for people who support those on the autism spectrum. --- Stephen M. Shore, internationally known author/consultant on the autism spectrum, Member of the Board of Directors of the Autism Society of America, the Asperger's Association of New England, and MAAP Services

I highly recommend ASPERGER DOWNLOAD to anyone who cares for or works with a teenager with Asperger Syndrome, as well as to teenagers themselves. The book uniquely provides the dual perspectives of a teenager with Asperger Syndrome and his mother. Josie and Damian have successfully navigated many of the challenges of AS, while celebrating its innumerable gifts. They discuss with great wisdom and knowledge a wealth of important and highly relevant topics, giving insight and strategies to help cope with the teenage years and beyond. --- Dr. Michelle S. Garnett, director, Minds and Hearts - a clinic for Asperger Syndrome and autism

ASPERGER DOWNLOAD is an invaluable resource for teens with AS written by a teenager with Asperger Syndrome with clarifying comments by his mother. Damian shares his experiences and offers definitions and advice to his peers on topics relevant to the teen with Asperger Syndrome. It's a wonderfully user-friendly compendium of 'everything you always wanted to know about ...' for teenagers with AS. Exceptionally well organized (dictionary style) and comprehensive, the book covers topics such as acne, stress, swearing, and hygiene in a clear and straightforward manner. This is truly a welcome addition to existing resources for teenagers with AS. --- Ellen Korin, author of ASPERGER SYNDROME: AN OWNER'S MANUAL and ASPERGER SYNDROME: AN OWNER'S MANUAL 2
