Something Different About Dad

(1 reviews with an average rating of 0 out of 5)

Publisher: Jessica Kingsley

Sophie’s father Mark has Asperger’s Syndrome. Using a comic strip format, she describes a series of occasions on which his condition manifests itself and the effects on all concerned. Following each episode, the book’s author and illustrator step in to offer insight and advice. They examine what happened, unravel problems, investigate why Mark behaved the way he did and suggest practical strategies for the future.

This is a book with much to offer in terms of increasing general awareness and understanding about the condition as well as having particular benefit to a young person with a parent who has Asperger’s. It also serves to explore an aspect of AS rarely featured – that of the condition in adults.
