Requesting Title: The Asperger Parent - How to Raise a Child with Asperger Syndrome and Maintain Your Sense of Humor
Author: Cohen, Jeffrey
Published: 2002
Summary:
In this "carry-on support group", Jeffrey Cohen, father of eleven-year-old Josh who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of five, examines what it's like to be the parent of a child with AS - where the pitfalls are and how to do your best to avoid them. With a great sense of humor and welcome, at times unflinching honesty, Cohen looks at all the emotions associated with being an AS parent - worry, sadness, anxiety, joy, pride, fear, triumph - and offers a pat on the back, a shoulder to cry on, a kick in the pants or a warm hug, when needed. With an easy-to-read , anecdotal tone, The Asperger Parent provides essential information and emotional support without being clinical and dry.
