There are not many books out there that provide the necessary background information and specific strategies needed to address social interactions in practical ways as provided in Social Skills for Teens and Adults with Asperger Syndrome. As a parent of teen with Asperger Syndrome, my wife and I have tried many of the suggestions described in the book and found them very helpful. Nancy Patrick provides information about why such strategies work, and this has been very informative. It can help parents develop yet other strategies. I highly recommend the book for any individual, parent, professional, or carer. --- Dion Betts, Ed.D. is Assistant to the Superintendent for Instructional Support at South Western School District in Hanover, PA.
