Can anyone give me titles of books on Aspergers - on life as a teenager/adult - and what can be expected developmentally.

Best one Tony Attwood's complete guide to Asperger's syndrome, clear and thorough.

Oh, and Freaks, Geeks and Asperger's syndrome by Luke Jackson who was an Aspie teen when he wrote it and is now presumably an Aspie adult.
His mother wrote a book called Multicoloured mayhem.
Temple Grading is an autistic adult who has written stuff as well...I'll have another think and pop back later.

Another vote for Tony Attwood, i think he also has a book about teen's but will have to check.

I have just been recommended by an OT a book called Aspergers Syndrome and Difficult Moments which is specifically about meltdown and various general angst related behaviours which I cant help thinking would help in teen years. I've been finding it really useful though it is not really about development per se.
