Dating is difficult for everyone, but it can be especially overwhelming tor teens with Asperger Syndrome, who typically struggle with social issues. Written in a question-and-answer format, this much-needed resource offers insight into and practical advice on dating challenges. Special education teacher Jeannie Uhlenkamp tackles some of the specific issues facing teens with AS in a logical progression, from how to know if someone likes you and how to ask someone out, to actually dating someone and breaking up. Each topic is followed by Discussion Questions (to get conversation flowing between teens and parents/teachers) and a Main Idea (to succinctly wrap up the main point). Also included are special notes to define the more elusive vocabulary and concepts of today's dating world. Foreword by Diane Adreon, EdD.
