Publisher's Summary

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome, Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger's, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development.
Many people are afflicted with and suffer from Asperger's, and there is little to no understanding by the general public in regards to this syndrome. There is a lack of awareness, so when people encounter someone who has Asperger's they view them strangely because aspies (as they commonly refer to themselves) act and communicate differently from the rest of society, so they are easily misunderstood.
In his book entitled Asperger Syndrome, author and Asperger expert Frank Ryan offers a comprehensive guide for understanding, living with, and treating Asperger syndrome.
Here are some of the topics covered:


Detailed overview and history of Asperger syndrome
Effects of the syndrome on social interactions
Effects of the syndrome on behavior and interests
Effects of the syndrome on speech and language
Effects of the syndrome on motor and sensory perception
Therapies and medication
Alternative therapies and treatments
Available aids
Children who suffer from Asperger
Adults who suffer from Asperger
How to deal with and manage a loved one who has Asperger
And much more

Can't tolerate the narrator's whistling the 's'!

I purchased this book last year but returned it because of the narrator. However, I really wanted to learn more on this topic so I purchased again. I struggled through til the end. Good information but the monotonous voice and s sound whistles drove me as nuts as my Aspie does!

Hurts my ears

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I was so disappointed to find a terrible whistle in the voice of the reader. The content is good, not great, but I can only take it in small doses. It is painful to listen to.
