A thought provoking and practical book about how one supporter, a grandmother, helped her grandchild search for ways to help him overcome the difficulties they both faced.
This book does not dwell on the problems but instead looks for the solutions they found together. It will be useful to all those whose lives are touched by Asperger's Syndrome but especially meaningful to those directly involved in supporting young people in school, college and in the home and neighbourhood setting.

} patterns of organization in daily life
} constructing programmes of development for individuals.
The book covers the practical issues facing those in their teens and twenties:
} daily living skills
} personal hygiene

People with Asperger's Syndrome can be valuable contributors to society if they are given support when they need it.
