Someone with Asperger syndrome lives in a different world from the majority of people who are 'neurotypical'.
The resulting social struggle can impair self-esteem and mental health, leading to isolation, misunderstanding and depression.
This book looks at the social potential of adults with Asperger syndrome, and how they may contribute on their own terms.
Topics include; what it feels like to have Asperger syndrome, Asperger syndrome - disorder or difference, social relationships, including social strengths such as loyalty and patience, sensory overload and coping with the external environment, Aspergers in love - finding and maintaining an intimate relationship, if your partner has Asperger syndrome, employment, help and advice.
In this thorough guide, Dr Ruth Searle says that someone with Asperger syndrome interacts with the world from a unique perspective.
Be true to yourself and reach for your highest aspirations.
