The majority of students with autism spectrum disorder face torment and bullying from their peers. Indeed, some of their behaviors and characteristics that others see as different make many of these children easy targets for frequent and severe bullying. Perfect Targets: Asperger Syndrome and Bullying - Practical Solutions for Surviving the Social World takes a frank look at the different types of bullying and what adults must do to curb bullying, helping to prevent the often lifelong effects of this behavior on its victims. Practical strategies and solutions at the school, class and individual levels are presented.
Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.
Whether you have been a target, a bully, or a bystander, the personal perspectives included give a vivid and accurate view of the impact bullying has on each one of us. More important, PERFECT TARGETS lets readers experience the devastating and long-term effects that bullying can have on the person with AS. No matter what role we may have played, PERFECT TARGETS offers comprehensive strategies for putting an end to the needless suffering. --Amanda Lautenschlager, parent
In addition to clearly defining bullying as it occurs in the schools, PERFECT TARGETS is jam packed with easy-to-implement solutions for identifying, resolving, and preventing the scourge of bullying on yet another generation. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to the entire Asperger Syndrome community as well as anyone concerned about the problem of bullying in the schools today. --Stephen M. Shore, author, BEYOND THE WALL, board president, Asperger's Association of New England
