Understanding Asperger's Syndrome

Type: Books

The purpose of this guide is to help educators (teachers and administrators) become acquainted with identifying and meeting the needs of the student with Asperger's Syndrome. Public school, while often difficult for typical students, can be a nightmare for those students with Asperger's Syndrome. Without information and training in this disability, teachers face confusion and frustration in light of the unusual behaviours and lack of social skills. Without training, students with Asperger's Syndrome are misidentified and often blamed for behaviours that are a direct result of their disability. It is hoped that this guide will lead teachers to a better understanding of Asperger's Syndrome and help the students with AS have a richer, more enjoyable educational experience.


"I love this book so much that I buy multiple copies of it and hand them out like potato chips! Well-organized, easy-to-read and implement, terrific advice, really good value. I recommend buying a set of three - you'll want to have more on hand to give to teachers, family members, administrators, caregivers, everyone!" - S Gardner, Parent
