Editorial Reviews

Review

Understanding How Asperger Children and Adolescents Think and Learn helps educators appreciate the learning process and improve its effectiveness for students with Asperger Syndrome.The author provides a compelling inside view of how AS pupils perceive and understand what goes on in the classroom, and how they, in turn, are perceived by fellow pupils and teachers. She adopts a pragmatic approach to improving communications in the classroom and offers practical intervention strategies to increase mutual understanding and create a rewarding and supportive learning environment. The book also includes many examples of behavior commonly observed in AS children, and illuminating accounts of specific children's experiences, which help to understand the learning process and avoid misunderstandings.This accessible book is a key resource for educators and parents of AS children and provides invaluable guidance and strategies for professionals who need to understand how AS pupils learn and communicate.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By forever in grade 6 on May 23, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book by Paula Jacobson has been a lifesaver for my aspie son and his teachers. So many of the books on this topic are technical and all encompassing. This one captures the "spirit" of the issues that most affect day to day survival in the neuro-typical world. The many examples are very helpful in seeing the subtleties that are often not noticed but make all the difference.

Format: Paperback
I discovered this book about 4 years ago. It totally helped me understand how my teenage daughter had been thinking and thereby changed the way I related to her. Our relationship shifted from very difficult to wonderful. I am so grateful to have read it and to the author for writing it. Really worth it!

This book gave me lots of helpful tips, and for my son's teacher's too! It helped to know that my son's behavior is very typical of Asperger's, and that we are not alone in learning how to deal with it.
