The Asperkid’s Game Plan
Intended for the parents of children with Asperger’s syndrome, this book is written by a woman who has the condition herself and whose children have it
Intended for the parents of children with Asperger’s syndrome, this book is written by a woman who has the condition herself and whose children have it.
The book is divided into sections, each offering an insight into a different aspect of Asperger’s syndrome and activities that help children with the condition to cope with them. These activities are intended to help children to manage change, adapt to new situations, feel more comfortable in their environments, and communicate and work with others.
I initially found the book difficult to read, mainly due to its American wording. After reading it again, however, I found the author’s way of thinking easier to follow, and understood why she has put the book together in the way she has. Overall, this is a useful book for all carers and professionals. It is not intended for nurses but would be of benefit to those who work with people, especially young children, with Asperger’s syndrome. Although the activities are intended for younger children, they could be adapted for adults.
