The National Parenting Publications Award Winner! Need a guide to understanding autism and personal strengths and resources? This is the perfect workbook! Asperger Syndrome: An Owner's Manual is an interactive workbook designed for young people grades fifth through eighth for use with guidance from a helping teacher or parent. Written for adolescents, this book describes high-functioning autism and how it can affect daily life. With the help of an adult, the child completes a series of activities related to learning style, sensory issues, emotions, relationships, and more, culminating in a written plan for each major area of his life.
This workbook enables children and youth with AS to see their strengths and examine their challenges in validating, positive way. By emphasizing positive discovery, this gem of a workbook leads to greater self-awareness as the person on the autism spectrum builds his own personal profile of who he is and develops an appreciation for what it is to be a fellow human being. --Stephen Shore, author of BEYOND THE WALL and President Emeritus of the Asperger's Association of New England
Ellen Korin's idea of a 'owner's manual' for someone with Asperger Syndrome is outstanding! The book is well thought out, written in easy-to-understand language and is full of practical applications that help demystify the complexity of AS. A great road map for the journey of self-advocacy and self-determination! --Ronda Schelvan, M.S.Ed., Autism Consultant, Special Education Teacher, and Co-Author of "The Hidden Curriculum
