Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence
Practical Solutions for School Success
Autism Society Award Winner!
The middle school years, and the transitions to middle and high school, pose challenges for all students. But for students with Asperger Syndrome the transition can be traumatic, leading to a downward emotional spiral and even depression. This comprehensive book starts with an overview of those characteristics of AS that make adolescence particularly challenging and difficult. The centerpiece of the book is a look at strategies and supports for a successful school experience for students with AS at the middle and secondary levels.
