Your local Waterstones may have stock of this item. I can only quote Lorna Wing's praise for Tony Attwood's "leap into the minds of people with Asperger's syndrome" in the introduction In my practice, I place considerable emphasis on helping parents and professionals to understand Asperger's syndrome and by using this understanding to work with affected individuals. I strongly recommend this book as an adjunct to diagnostic explanations and discussions of the syndrome's implications.

For the practising clinician working with individuals with Asperger's syndrome this book is a must. It is an excellent guide that does not rely on scientific terminology for explanations. Chapters on social behaviour, language, interests, routines, physical clumsiness, cognition and sensory sensitivity are written in a very basic language, yet they are quite detailed and informative. Each chapter includes a brief and handy summary of strategies both parents and teachers will find helpful when dealing with children with this disorder.
The section on Frequently asked Questions was better than having a private consultation with a specialist and gave one the sensation of being part of a well informed support group. Despite age, this book still offers tremendous insight into the identification and treatment of children on the higher functioning end of ASD Tony you have done it again! You have produced another bestseller on Asperger's syndrome.
Tony's new book, The Complete Guide to Asperger, is indeed a book for anyone who has an interest or passion in understanding how individuals with Asperger's Syndrome view the neurotypical world. Tony integrates research and practice, highlighting key issues with an abundance of insightful contributions from people with Asperger's Syndrome.
His eloquent style of writing is both informative and entertaining. A Tony Attwood's empathy, knowledge and common-sense approach to describing individuals with Asperger's syndrome, highlighting the problems that they and their families, teachers and carers often face, and outlining the practical and achievable strategies for intervention and education is spot-on.
Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals
Attwood has achieved the rare feat of describing the current state of scientific knowledge in accessible and understandable language. The book is thus a rich source of information I'm almost embarrassed to find myself writing such an overwhelmingly positive review, but this book was a delight to read from start to finish. Everyone who works in the field, every parent, and I suspect many individuals with Asperger's syndrome will want to read this book.
My daughter had also been diagnosed with a kidney disease at birth but we got the diagnosis when she was 7, and I felt like I had a new child. One name kept coming up during the initial stages of my research: Tony Attwood. My daughter's school district was as unfamiliar as I was with Asperger's at first, so, along with other resources, I loaned them the book. Your Name. E-Mail Address.
