Perfect Targets
Asperger Syndrome and Bullying - Practical Solutions for Surviving the Social World

A 2002 study from Comprehensive Issues in Pediatric Nursing found that 94 percent of students with Asperger Syndrome face torment from their peers. Indeed, some of their behaviors and characteristics that others see as "different" make many of these children easy targets for frequent and severe bullying. This book takes a frank look at the different types of bullying and what adults must do to curb bullying, helping prevent the often lifelong effects of this behavior on its victims. Practical strategies and solutions at the school, class and individual level are presented. Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - This is the book that every parent and/or caretaker of a child with Asperger's Syndrome has been waiting for. People with Asperger's, which is a neurobiological condition on the autism spectrum experience social difficulties including communication. Since people with AS often find tacit Social Codes & Rules challenging at best, incomprehensible at worst, they are often targeted by bullies. This book is a good tool of empowerment.
