A Practical Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
In Asperger's from the Inside Out, author Michael John Carley shares his experiences living with Asperger's syndrome. As executive director of GRASP (The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership) and father of a son who also has Asperger's, he describes the toll it has taken on his life and uses humor and advice to show how one can live successfully and fulfillingly with this condition. Among other topics, he discusses coping strategies, handling relationships and family, and finding a suitable career in the workforce. Mark Roithmayr, president of Autism Speaks, says that this work is an "engaging book" that "offers a thoughtful and creative roadmap for people with Asperger's and their loved ones," while actress Sigourney Weaver calls it a "wonderfully candid and encouraging book about navigating the world of Asperger's syndrome."
