Asperger's Syndrome - After the Diagnosis, Book 3
A book for parents of children with Asperger Syndrome.
From the Introduction by the author:
"Your child may have been given the diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome by a pediatrician, psychologist, speech therapist, teacher or friend. I hope that you were dealt the news in a compassionate and positive way.
"Diagnosis is the first hurdle and there will be many more hurdles in your child's life. Friends, doctors, teachers will come and go, but you will be the stability in his/her life, and you will have made a difference. Your role is not only to help your child understand, accept, and love the world, but to help people around your child to understand, accept and love "his/her" world.
"Although, Asperger Syndrome may appear to consume your life sometimes (well, most of the time) try not to dwell on the negatives, love the positives and embrace your child's successes.
"When my son was first diagnosed, there was little known about Asperger Syndrome, particularly for parents. Whilst preparing this booklet I have found that I was constantly revisiting my grief, and I have found the process to be a wonderful vehicle for therapy.
The aim of this booklet is to introduce Asperger Syndrome to you in a positive light, and to guide you, the mother, through some issues that you may face on the Asperger Syndrome journey with your child."
