Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–Those who have this developmental disorder or who know someone who does will benefit from this informative, easy-to-understand book. In addition to describing the manifestations of Asperger's, which include difficulties in social situations, obsessive pursuit of unusual interests, and under- or overreaction to sensory stimuli, Rosaler discusses ways to help the individual, common misconceptions, theories surrounding the condition, and more.–Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. This book from the Coping series introduces Asperger syndrome, a neurological disorder related to autism, taking a look at symptoms, treatments, and the increasing awareness and changing views surrounding it. Two interesting chapters deal with the needs of children with Asperger syndrome and how they are met (or not) in schools. Although the book occasionally seems to address adults, it is one of the first overviews to present what is known in a manner that is accessible to younger readers. Appendixes include a glossary, bibliographies, source notes, and lists of organizations in the U.S and Canada that readers can contact for help. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
As the mom of a son with Asperger's Syndrome, I found this excellent book to be helpful and informative. Unlike other books on the subject by so called experts who seem to put themselves above the condition they are describing, Ms. Rosaler makes it clear that the obsessive preoccupations and social difficulties of this disorder are shared by many of us and it is really only a matter of the degree of the behavior. When I first read this book my son had been recently diagnosed, and I was overcome with worry. Many of the books I read about Asperger's at the time just made me more fearful, which only made it more difficult to work with my son. It was such a relief to find a book that was simply and clearly written and almost soothing in tone and where I could totally relate to the anecdotes she described. Yet she did not gloss over the problems that this condition creates and offered many practical suggestions. I would recommend this book to parents, teachers and other people who work with individuals with Asperger's. And it is one of the few books on the subject that I was happy to show to my son when he was in his teens.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Patty on January 21, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The book is unfocused. Ms. Rosaler never settled on what her primary point was. Part of it was story telling, part of it was Aspergers, part of it was stigma, part of it was special education and school, etc. It lacked focus and staying power. She drifted all over.

It was clear that all of her "statements of fact," were not factually supported -- in fact they often were wrong -- but were statements of her opinion without supporting facts.

She uses politically incorrect language about people with disabilities at many points in the book.

She identifies what she considers to be multiple problems but she offers no solution to the problems, nor does she offer any practical advice to the reader to help guide the reader through or around the problems she identifies.

I didn't find the book informative, well written or helpful. It isn't worth the price. There are many more books that would be more helpful to parents/families living with Asperger's. I encourage readers to save your money and pass on this book.

First--I don't know what that Patty person was talking about! Sounds like it might be a personal vendetta! This is a great book. Very well written, well organized, with a definite point of view: that is, an advocacy point of view. Very comprehensive as well--covers everything from the theories about autism to practical advice for educating children with this disorder. I greatly appreciated the tone of the book as well. Not cute or condescending or boring like so many books of this ilk. The only drawback is the price.

I learned more about the condition Asperger. I will refer back to the book again. The book consists of 100 pages and explains the challenges parents and children will face with the condition.

Format: Hardcover
Although written very simply, this book allows the whole family to connect with the issue of aspergers. This book allows Aspergers Syndrome to be talked about, and not be a pink elephant in the living room. A little over priced, though...
