Book Description

September 2000
This welcome addition to the Practical Solutions series by the Autism Asperger Publishing Company uncovers the puzzling behaviors of children and youth with Asperger Syndrome that have a sensory base and, therefore, are often difficult to pinpoint and interpret. Written in a reader-friendly style, the book covers the impact of the sensory system on behavior, reviews formal and informal assessment tools and offers an invaluable set of practical interventions that can be used by parents and educators alike to help promote success for children and youth with AS. The “sensory gang” – a set of clever icons used throughout the book – helps the reader navigate among the senses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and entertaining in equal measures June 25 2003
Format:Paperback
This book brings a much more detailed perspective on early adult life on the autistic spectrum than many others. The fact that it is looking at AS through a man's eyes is also worth noting. The author touchs on career choice issues that many with AS have agonised over. To disclose or not to disclose being the Big Question. I won't spoil your reading by recounting the author's experiences.
The book describes 'relationships' in candid AS terms. There is a huge amount here for researchers and professionals to dwell on. However, the book is not a guidebook for managing relationships better (or even getting into them) and a crucial metacommentary on events in the book is largely absent.
Overall I enjoyed this book. Most readers will find the latter half of the book dealing with college and adult life more revealing than the first half, in my opinion. The book presents AS in sharp tones on occasion. It is a 'warts and all' narrative, but I highly recommend reading it.

2.0 out of 5 stars ONLY FOR NON-ASPERGERS June 21 2001
Format:Paperback
I am an adult with Aspergers and bought the book after reading the great reviews here. Although it is a good book that shows some aspects of the Aspergers world to outsiders, for us who live and swim in it, this was an unsatisfying book. It merely scratches the surface of our world. Buy it if you want just a glimpse in.

For several years those who work with children with Aspeger Syndrome have recognized that they have sensory issues that may require modifications. This book explains what these issues are and presents strategies that can make a difference in the lives of children with Asperger Syndrome.

I LOVE this book! Quick, easy-to-read book on how the sensory system effects individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. Unfortunately, my son's school district has an OT who does not understand sensory issues. After reading this book, I was able to put into place several sensory activities (a sensory diet) to help my son.

This is a great book, not just for Asperger Syndrome. It relates and explains all of the sensory systems really well and in easy to understand terms.
