The Asperger Parent
How to Raise a Child With Asperger Syndrome and Maintain Your Sense of Humor
In this humorous and refreshingly honest book, Jeffrey Cohen, father of 11-year-old Josh, discusses what it's like to be the parent of a child with Asperger Syndrome. Based on Cohen's experiences raising his son, who was diagnosed with AS at the age of 5, "The Asperger Parent" provides essential information and emotional support without being clinical and dry. Cohen offers his insights in an easy-to-read, anecdotal tone. This book is a real treat for parents, especially those with newly diagnosed children. It covers every emotion an AS parent will feel - worry, sadness, anxiety, joy, pride, fear, triumph - and offers a light at the end of the tunnel. Forward by Lori Sheri.
