Appreciating Asperger Syndrome by Brenda Boyd
Looking At The Upside (with 300 Positive Points)
'This is an absolutely fascinating and insightful book - a real celebration of Asperger Syndrome. I have read many books about Asperger Syndrome (AS) but this one, more than any other, has helped me understand AS and think about it in a new and more positive light...and to realise that the world really does need Asperger Syndrome!' --- Julie Connell, Educational Psychologist
'How refreshing to find a book that challenges the stereotypical and often negative view of AS, encouraging the reader instead to look at the many positive attributes of this complex condition...this book reinforces the view that "the more deeply we understand AS, the more positive we can be".' --- Jo Douglas, Consultant Psychologist
