Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the crowded parenting category, there are two types of books: those that euphemistically recast time-honored childhood behaviors ("He's not being a brat, John. He's being spirited") and practical reference books, like this one, that offer bracing, hopeful advice about real developmental afflictions. To have written such a book on Asperger's syndrome-a class of autism with a swath of diagnostic markers that can range from attention deficit disorder to obsessive-compulsive disorder-is no small feat. Drawing from their respective experiences with Asperger children in clinical and school settings, the authors move succinctly through the traits and typologies of the syndrome, and into the everyday coping strategies that are the book's strength. Sohn and Grayson also deliver on their early promise to go beyond therapies that "focus on survival" (one chapter offers ways for parents to broaden their children's behavioral repertoire by introducing controlled, incremental crises). Abundant, true-to-life dialogues between Asperger children, their parents and peers model the strategies of school psychologist Grayson and special education teacher Sohn in action. A glossary of verbal cues (e.g., "in your mind" for thoughts children shouldn't voice aloud) offer elegant and unequivocal ways to redirect undesirable social behaviors. These practical solutions, along with language that is authoritative, reassuring and jargon-free, make this book an indispensable guide. (Feb. 1) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Amazing

    I bought this book after attending an all-day workshop for staff of the Central Bucks School District, PA. The workshop was presented by the authors and they were amazing. Thier idea of teaching social thinking rather than social skills is the key to helping AS individuals become independent. It works so much better and it makes more sense. I use a lot of their approaches in my one-on-one jobs as an AS aid for the school district, some for my TSS work, and it has helped me in graduate school studies.

    The Best!

    As a teacher and parent of an Asperger child, I have read many books on Autism and Aspergers. This is by far the best, informative and practical. This book has really helped me in my classroom and at home. I finally understand and have tools to help my students and my son.

    This is a wonderful book for parents, teachers, therapists

    This book relates to many children on the spectrum. The author breaks down the various characteristics of aspergers and gives practical advice. Behaviors and interventions are discussed. The appendices have checklists for you to evaluate your child. The book has been one of the most interesting I have ever read.
