Erscheint Ihnen Ihr Kind manchmal schrullig und wenig einfühlsam? Allgemeinverständlich und unterhaltsam geschrieben eröffnet das Buch Betreuern, Lehrern, Begleitern und Eltern von Menschen mit Autismus neue Sichtweisen. All in all, however, I would recommend this book, particularly to parents and teachers I wish both my parents and my teachers would have had something like this when I was growing up. It's an education problem, not a psychiatric one. I was also hoping to avoid a book that made a lot of assumptions about what 'masculinity' and 'femininity' might be. I have read one of Simon Baron Cohen's books on autism and felt somewhat irked by his perspective.
I wished that the author or an editor had weeded out the repetitions. In diesem Buch finden Sie bewährte Strategien, die die soziale und emotionale Kompetenz fördern. If it whets your appetite there are 22 pages of refernces for further study and a section on further resources. I feel that if there is any book out there that covers this subject thoroughly, it is this book by Tony Attwood. Drawing on case studies from Attwood's extensive clinical experience, the book is authoritative and extremely accessible. We know more about what works for Aspie kids than ever before.
I decided to read this book because of my suspicions that I have Asperger's. They work most of the time. I read this book hoping, like many others, to gain a grasp of my own responses to the neurotypical world, and its responses to me. This book is a good general guide to Aspergers, providing information on characteristics, diagnosis, treatment, and ramifications. The summaries which follow each chapter are excellent outlines of key ideas and conclusions. I also got the definite impression from the chapter on romantic relationships that his impression is that people with Asperger's shouldn't have romantic relationships with neurotypicals, though I'm not sure that's the author's point.
My only problem with the book is that Attwood babies Aspies too much, commonly suggesting that they should make everyone aware of their condition and expect both understanding and allowances. The aspie population does have a different profile of offending, often involving the morally right or at least, to the aspie mind, defensible, which isn't necessarily the same thing colliding with the legally wrong: think Lisbeth Salander. I read this book in the hope that I would gain a clearer understanding of two people in my circle. The book will be of most use to parents of Aspies and I believe Attwood had that readership in mind when he wrote it. I'm like everyone else, just as selfish and concerned with meeting my needs, but this has forced me to question everything down to the foundation.
I also got the definite impression from the chapter on romantic relationships that his impression is that people with Asperger's shouldn't have romantic relationships with neurotypicals, though I'm not sure that's the a I decided to read this book because of my suspicions that I have Asperger's. Ein persönliches Buch, das die Menschen, die Asperger haben - einer großen europäischen Studie zufolge in Deutschland pro Jahrgang ca. Read it if you haven't. There is also an invaluable frequently asked questions chapter and a section listing useful resources for anyone wishing to find further information on a particular aspect of Asperger's Syndrome, as well as literature and educational tools. Clinical diagnosis is discussed in significant detail.
One of the nicest and most surprising aspects of this compendium of knowledge is that it's easy to read. Asperger's is a difficult subject to understand, and no one book will give that understanding anyhow. The child may have no peer group in his or her classroom, socially or intellectually. The psychological consequences of bullying in the typical population can last for more than ten years. It may be helpful if my future kids are Aspies.
Drawing on case studies from Attwood's extensive clinical experience, the book is authoritative and extremely accessible. A great many scholarly papers and books have been distilled to make up a good portion of the material. Also the more physical symptoms that are experienced: mainly those of and I've always thought the latter was exclusive to aspies or was a different thing than aspergers. Essential reading for families and individuals affected by Asperger's Syndrome as well as teachers, professionals and employers coming in contact with people with Asperger's Syndrome, this book should be on the bookshelf of anyone who needs to know or is interested in this complex condition. The language is never too technical, and has quotations from Hans Asperger who first diagnosed the condition as well as excerpts from Aspies themselves - which add another dimension to the book. From explaining symptoms and getting a diagnosis, through to overcoming bullying in schools and choosing between the therapy and medical treatments available, this is a complete guide to surviving and thriving with the condition. But maybe one of these days.
I think of this book as the Asperger's equivalent to The Joy of Cooking. In that, I would consider it successful. You will learn how it is diagnosed, theo I thought this book was very detailed in regards to Asperger's Syndrome. There are too many and too various medical conditions for society to support all of them. When requiring the child to participate in ball games, the teach should discourage other children from laughing if the child fumbles with the ball, and should not have team leaders select team members, which so often results both in the child with Asperger's syndrome being chosen last, an din groans from the other children that they must have such a clumsy child as a member of their team. The book focuses heavily on childhood and adolescence but does not completely ignore adulthood; I think this just reflects where the effort has been put with regard to helping Aspies - there's just much less support for adults available.
