Self-help guide from internationally respected Wendy Lawson
Wendy Lawson overcame a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia to become a social worker and adult educator. Author of Life Behind Glass and Understanding and Working with the Spectrum of Autism, both published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, she lives in Victoria, Australia.
This book is easy to read and is packed with humorous
illustrations, poetry and anecdotes, in the hope of giving the
reader a clearer understanding of Asperger Syndrome. The best thing
about the book is that it is not full of jargon or medical
terminology. The book offers plenty of useful and practical advice,
not only for people with AS but also people who may have interest
in AS. -- Autism West Midlands
This book is well designed for people with Asperger's Syndrome because it is not very long which is good for people like me who get anxious and impatient quite easily. I also lose track of what is being talked about in a piece of writing quite easily. Another reason why this book is suited for people with autism is that it uses several diagrams, and diagrams are an effective way to communicate with people with autism. I found this book helped me to increase my understanding of Asperger's Syndrome. I found this book quite interesting and would recommend this book to other people with Asperger's Syndrome. -- Robert Drew, Son of Asperger Syndrome Support Network Worker
