About the Author

As a single mother of a teenaged son with Asperger Syndrome and a rambunctious four-year-old daughter, Jan Johnston-Tyler brings a joyful but no-nonsense approach to her professional and personal life, and believes that the only true barriers are often self- or socially imposed. Currently completing her master s in counseling psychology (her third career in as many decades), Ms. Johnston-Tyler works part time with high school students in career assessment, and hopes to continue to write about her experiences, both as a mother of an Asperger teen and working with high-risk and special needs youth in career development.

More About the Author

Jan Johnston-Tyler earned her Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Santa Clara University, with an emphasis on Career Development 26 years after completing her Bachelors of Arts in English Literature with Distinction from UC Berkeley. Ms. Johnston-Tyler is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), American Counseling Association (ACA), the California Counseling Association (CCA), and the California Career Development Association (CCDA). She is published both in books and in professional journals, and frequently speaks about hidden disabilities and neurodiversity in educational, corporate, and non-profit settings.

Finally, as the mother of an Asperger Syndrome son and a daughter with ADHD, she knows first hand what interventions can do for neurodiverse populations, and how exceptional these people are.

A great book to get whether you have been dealing with this subject for years, or if you are just starting on the journey and have no idea what to do next.

Format: Paperback
Helpful in a very practical way, full of life and humor, precisely the two things one needs in order to do right by a child on the autism spectrum. I have an 11 year old son who was diagnosed with Autism, but who is actually probably an "Aspy". This book has wonderful ideas to help in many situations; QUICK, easy to execute plans of action. The book made me re-think some old notions about Autism and Asperger Syndrome. This book also contains a ton of information for parents with a newly diagnosed child. Man, I wish this book had been around 6 years ago when my son was diagnosed. I had a thousand questions about IEPs, therapies, interventions, disciplines.......the list goes on. Here are virtually all the answers in one place. A great book to get whether you have been dealing with this subject for years, or if you are just starting on the journey and have no idea what to do next.

This book is a wonderful guide and handbook for anyone dealing with an Asperger child. It covers recognizing the signs, diagnosis, helpful hints on how to deal in difficult situations and best of all how to enjoy your child who has this disorder. She tells of the many problems one faces trying to get help in schools and much, much more. It is as easy to read as a humorous novel. Every aspect of what one can encounter with an Asperger's child has been explored. This is a publication that has been needed for years. Kudos to the author!

By cecilia coetsee on July 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
Even as a mainstream middle school teacher I found Jan Johnston's book outstanding. I wish I had read it long ago. I would have been more patient with not only kids with AS but all the other "little darlings" :)too. Whether you have any students with AS or not, this is excellent down-to-earth reading. It gave me a much clearer understanding of the world of Asperger's. Jan's book is meant for moms but it contains excellent advice for all parents, caregivers and educators.

This book is a very good help to anyone who has a child with Aspergers. I did not know that much about this syndrome until I read this book. It is very easy to read and gives many helpful hints and suggestions.
