Review

Whether an institution of higher education provides support through its Office of Disability Services or offers specialized programs to meet the needs of students with Asperger Syndrome, this book will assist in meeting the needs of this academically capable, yet challenging group of students through practical, easy-to-implement ideas and strategies. --Susan Kabot, Ed.D., CCC-SLP, director, Mailman Segal Institute, Nova Southeastern University<br /><br />Wolf, Brown, and Bork have woven their many years of professional research, direct service experience, and personal passion for students with Asperger Syndrome into this comprehensive guide. The field of higher education has long awaited a book of such breadth and depth of expertise in this area, and it will be an essential resource not only for professionals who work directly with this population, but for all college personnel, offices, and departments that interface with students. --Lisa King, M.Ed., Higher Education and Autism Spectrum Disorders, Inc.<br /><br />Wolf, Brown, and Bork offer a framework fundamentally shifting how we think about Asperger Syndrome. By bringing us into the worlds of college-level students with Asperger Syndrome, they challenge us to think outside the box. Through concrete examples, their clear and insightful presentation teaches us that by broadening and enriching our perspectives, we can broaden and enrich the lives of students with Asperger Syndrome, thereby enabling them to contribute meaningfully to society. Isn't that what higher education is all about? --Jo Anne Simon, attorney and associate professor, Fordham University School of Law

I began reading books on Asperger's Syndrome 9 years ago, when my son was diagnosed with the condition. The books on the subject were few then, but now are many. As college now looms on the horizon for my son, I've recently read several books on how to help a student with AS succeed in college. This is, bar none, THE best book on that subject that I have read. It is written by three credentialed and experienced educators: (1) the director of disability services for Boston University (she has a Ph.D.); (2) the director of student services at the University of Connecticut School of Law (she has an Ed.D.); and (3) a dean who is also the director of the disability resource center for Northeastern University (she has an M.Ed.). My first clue that this would be a practical yet scientifically accurate book was that the foreward was written by Fred Volkmar, M.D., and Ami Klin, Ph.D., both of Yale Child Study Center. Drs. Volkmar and Klin are two world-renowned experts on Asperger's Syndrome and both work in a university setting. If they vouch for you, you are golden!

The book is stunningly accurate in its portrayal of the strengths and the everyday challenges of college students with Asperger's. The authors clearly have all worked closely with many individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. They recognize that, while the expression of AS is different for each person, there are common areas of difficulty with which students will likely need support. Although they write primarily for those who work in college disability services offices and therefore take that perspective, the authors also empathize with the student and his/her parents.

Format: Paperback
Asperger's is a unique condition in that it's not necessarily an impairment. "Students with Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for College Personnel" discusses Asperger syndrome and how college-level educators and administrators should deal with students affected with the condition and how these students are different from the others. Defining Asperger's and how it will affect the many different avenues of campus life, "Students with Asperger Syndrome" is a strong and highly recommended pick for these teachers who may not be familiar with Asperger's.

This topic is only going to continue to become more and more prevalent in Higher Education. This is the only book I have found that dresses topics specifically for College personnel.

Buy this if you work anywhere at a college or university because their are tips that we can all use.
