Overview

Social interaction among neurotypical people is complex and in many ways illogical. To the person with Asperger Syndrome (AS) it is also woefully unintuitive. In this book, adults with AS discuss social relationships, offer advice and support for others with AS and provide necessary insights into AS perspectives for those working and interacting with them.

The contributors evaluate a range of social contexts and relationship aspects, including: online relationships - a worldwide social network based on non-verbal communication, the unwritten rules of neurotypical socialising, the need for mutual understanding between those with AS and neurotypicals, the effects of struggling socially on one's self-esteem and frame of mind, and the opportunities provided by social skills workshops or interest groups. This book is essential reading for adults with AS, their family and friends, as well as service providers and other professionals providing support for people with AS in adult life.
