Overview

Beyond The Dragon is another 'Hail Mary' story. Robbie is an inspirational character that gives all kids with Aspergers as well as parents, coaches and teachers the hope that they can achieve their goals if they work hard and are surrounded by a supportive team. This story is also an important lesson for kids to accept and encourage all teammates no matter what their abilities are." - Doug Flutie, Co-Founder, The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc. Nine-year-old Robbie Stanley would rather stay inside, playing on his computer and watching TV rather than go outside and interacting with the neighborhood kids-that is, until one afternoon when he happens across a soccer game while flipping through the TV channels. Immediately, Robbie is transfixed upon the dragon adorning the Greensboro players' uniforms. At that defining moment, he decides that he wants to play soccer. While this may be a rather routine task for any other child, Robbie, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome (AS),finds that playing soccer sets him on a course on which he has never embarked before. Although Robbie is excited about his new adventure, his mother is unsure how her son will react in situations to which he is not accustomed. Of more pressing concern, is how other children will act towards him. Experience the trials and tribulations of Robbie as he participates in organized sports for the first time.

    Wonderful Story - Great 'Teaching Moment'

    I was so happy to find a book where the protagonist is a child with Asperger's. Robbie's challenges, hopes and dreams are something my family can relate to and others can learn from. Educational and uplifting for any reader! I hope to hear more about Robbie and/or look forward to other charcters with 'special needs'!
