Children With Asperger Syndrome: In Their Own Words
Eric Hoffer Award Winner!
International Book Award!
There are countless books with information about children with Asperger Syndrome, but very few offer a personal look into the inner lives of these children. In this unique collection of children's essays, poems and discussions recounted by parents, readers have a rare opportunity to gain insight into the world of children with Asperger Syndrome. Instead of being talked about, children here have the opportunity to share their world - their passions and fears, their awesome sense of wonder and quirky sense of humor, their distinguishing talents and much more. Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.
