The Asperger Plus Child
How to Identify and Help Children With Asperger Syndrome and Seven Common Coexisting Conditions – Bipolar Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disability, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, High-Functioning Autism, Tourette’s Syndrome and Attention Deficit Disorder
In "The Asperger Plus Child," author George Lynn combines current research with his own experience working for close to 20 years with children whom he calls "attention different" to create an indispensable guide about the many children with Asperger Syndrome who also demonstrate signs of other conditions. Written for parents, teachers, counselors and medical professionals, the book provides a map that helps people better understand the often complex issues of individuals with AS and, as a result, provide better services.
