Aspergers Syndrome - What Teachers Need to Know {Tuesday's Treasures}

We have a few families in our homeschool group and within extended family who have been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome.  One of my missions has been to find books that assist in understanding Aspergers Syndrome.  There are so many books out there these days that it's difficult to find books that give encouraging information without technical information overload!

I love this book for it's simplicity and the way it elevates the positives of children with Asperger Syndrome.  Matt has spent hours reading through many books, speaking to families of children living with Asperger Syndrome and taught children with Asperger Syndrome.  He was encouraged to write a condensed book about what he has learned.  His aim is to provide the reader with a summary of the information currently available about Asperger Syndrome.  His book gives quick tips and practical ideas as well as thought provoking questions with insights to consider before you answer them.  His aim is to give the reader a good initial grounding on the subject of Asperger Syndrom and he definately has.
