Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for Professionals and Families integrates the latest evidence-based research from leading scholars and examples from those working with this population in non-university settings with personal practical advice from a mother whose adolescent has Asperger Syndrome and from a young man who has Asperger Syndrome. Asperger Syndrome is a life-long condition that requires long-term planning, treatment, and medical intervention. Early diagnosis and treatment may lead to minimizing the impact of the Asperger Syndrome at each developmental stage. Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for Professionals and Families provides effective perspective on each type of intervention and assists those making key decisions at critical developmental and education times in the life of the Asperger Syndrome person. The authors rely on the most current research evidence and clinical experience to provide a realistic appraisal of the most significant aspects of Asperger Syndrome. Notable features include: -An analysis of the most current research literature, -A model for a new approach to diagnosis, treatment, education, and long-term planning, -An ecological, task analytical view of educating the person with an AspergerSyndrome diagnosis, -Social skills and social issues such as victimization, -The diagnosis and treatment of Asperger Syndrome persons with dual-diagnoses, -An analysis of the later life issues for intervention, -A personal view from a person with an Asperger Syndrome diagnosis. Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for Professionals and Families provides information and guidance to parents, educators, diagnosticians, and therapists on best practice approaches to Asperger Syndrome.
