Asperger's Rules!: How to Make Sense of School and Friends Reviews
There's value in this book, but better books are available. E.g. The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders is better.
My son is in those awkward tween years. We knew he had social deficits, but until we worked through this book together, I had no concept of the specific areas that challenged him. There are so many small subtle things that are "automatic" to me, that I would never think to teach him. This book helped us to identify these things. It is written in plain English & easy to understand. I like how it was interactive....more like a workbook format - reading, checking your learning & planning how to apply these skills to your life. I highly recommend, for any parent of a child with social delays / difficulties.
I have been looking for a "self help" book for my 10 year old son. He has Asperger's and struggles with social skills - reading social cues, making friends, etc... This book is written at the perfect level. It includes lists of reminders and is written with humor and understanding. I even bought a copy for his teacher so she could use some of the techniques too!
I got this from my local library first for my 8 1/2 year old, who has just gotten a diagnosis this year. She loved it, so I ordered a copy for her to write in. It has been immensely helpful right away. She understands it very well and is able to use the tips suggested for making adjustments in everyday life. It's also helping her understand how her own brain works, and she's able to articulate what's going on in her head for the first time, in some cases. She loves it, and it makes all of our lives a little easier. You should have this book.
I bought this for my son and I to read. He hasn't finished it yet, so I can't give an honest review. He seems to like it so far. He has Asperger's and wants to learn more about what makes him tick.
This has been a great reference book and is written in the right terms for a young teen trying to make their way through the social challenges of school and other public situations. It is written simply enough with practical tips that most teens should be able to try - or at least offers enough suggestions so that there are multiple ways to approach a situation.
Perfect book for my son who has Asperger's. It has helped him to see that he is not alone in his journey. I have read the book and there are tons of great advice in there for my son and also it has helped me to get a better perspective of what he is going through as he is now in middle school.
As a grandparent of an "Aspie" who is proud of himself and feels the Aspergers Syndrome really defines him positively, I felt this book gave anyone a down-to-earth look at how to handle the little crisis that occasionally occurs. Good for teachers, parents, grandparents, as well as the child.
