Students with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) frequently find the school environment challenging, despite often having a high level of academic ability, because their unique social and sensory difficulties are not fully understood or accommodated. This book clearly explains proven and practical approaches in education and care that will enable young people with AS in primary and secondary education to thrive. The author uses anecdotes from his extensive teaching experience to illustrate potential problem areas and put forward solutions. There are useful strategies for dealing with issues relating to anxiety, communication, social rules, relationships and classroom behaviour. Accounts from parents and young people with AS who have benefited from the approaches described in the book are also included. This book is a comprehensive and accessible resource for teachers, carers and professionals working with young people with AS, equipping them with the insight to help AS pupils succeed, not only in school, but in the wider world. Parents will also find it useful.
