As I have previously posted, my DS5 is currently going through assessment for possible Aspergers-his full assessment date is 31st March, but the clinical psychologist told me yesterday that there are a lot of things in his behaviour which suggest he may well have AS. I would like to get some books, but looking at the National Autistic Society website, it is a bit bewildering as to which to get without spening an absolute fortune. Any recommendations?

The oasis guide to asperger syndrome by Patricia Romanowski bashe and Barbara Kirby is a really thorough and informative book. Kirby founded OASIS (Online ASperger syndrome Information and Support) Web Site. Also I rememeber being impressed with a book by Tony Attwood but I'm afriad I can't remember what the book was called.
