I am sure this 178 page parenting book, The Don't Freak Out Guide to Parenting Kids with Asperger's by Sharon Fuentes and Neil McNerney, will make the lives of families raising a child with Asperger's sydrome (AS) much easier. The authors' conversational tone reassures and comforts the reader just like a friend sharing a cup of coffee or a phone call. In the first few pages the authors gain your trust because you know they speak from work and life experiences. - Special Needs Book Reviews

From the Author
Most of the books on Asperger's are very clinical and focus on trying to change or fix your child. The Don't Freak Out Guide to Parenting Kids with Asperger's is different. It has a conversational approach and a sense of humor that parents can relate to. It is a quick read that offers easy techniques on how parents can help LEAD their child and break the cycle of worry, anger and guilt. Funny how you never hear that word (LEAD) when people talk about Autism or Asperger's, do you? Yet if you think of some of our most famous people throughout history, folks whom we consider to be leaders in their fields (Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Mozart etc.), they all seemed to have had traits that could be considered very Asperger like. So leadership and Asperger's really do go well together, thus making it a very effective way to parent.
There is so much conflict among the autism community; this book is not about all that. This book is about being a good parent which is something I think everyone can agree we all want to be. My goal is that after you read this book, you will be able to look at your child and see them for the wonderful, unique and perfect person they are; and that you will use the techniques we teach you to LEAD them to be the best that they can be! I also hope that this book gives you the strength to believe. Believe in yourselves, your instincts and above all, your child!
