Hi, can anyone recommend any really good books on Aspurgers syndrome?

I think my daughter might have it and the more I'm reading about it on the internet, the more it's explaining her funny little ways and why she acts in sertain ways.

Also if there are any good websites I might not have found yet, please let me know.

Thanks in advance. smile

There are two other book by Tony Attwood which are brilliant.

The Complete Guide to Apserger's Syndrome

Asperger's and Girls.

The second one is particularly good if your daughter tends to try to cover her symptoms, shows no difficulties in the school environment and then comes home and lets it all out.

thank you, yes that's exactly what my daughter does!! That's why the school won't back me up and refuses to see a problem other than her speech. hmm

I'll buy that one today. smile

There is also one called Aspergirls. No idea who wrote it I am afraid but should be on Amazon.

'alien in the playground' is written by a female author with aspergers
How old is she?

It is "Martian in the Playground" by Clare Sainsbury and it is another brilliant book.

www.amazon.co.uk/Freaks-Geeks-Asperger-Syndrome-Ad olescence/dp/1843100983 this is a good book.

When I read your title I thought it said a really good book on asparagus which I though, there can't be that many book written about asparagus
