Comments: (7)

This is the third book on my "So You'd Like to..." list, for parents introducing their child to his/her own Autism/Asperger Syndrome. This book is very blunt about some of the highly challenging aspects of having AS, not dainty or delicate at all. Also, the experiences of one child, the example in the story, may vary from the experiences of another AS child. Nevertheless, I found it really helped my son to read it around age 9. It really helped him get some sense of not being isolated and having reasons for the challenges he experiences. I found it useful to point out to my son that the boy in the story manifested some of the same issues as he himself did at the time, but also some he didn't, and that every AS child (and adult!) is unique, so he shouldn't feel any differences were of huge significance. Also, letting some family members and buddies read it was useful, as well, as it really opened people's eyes to the genuine hard work each day can be for someone with AS.

To me, it's all about helping the child learn to be comfortable in his or her own skin and learn to better self-advocate as they grow older. Of course, it's ALSO about educating people who stubbornly resist understanding neurobiologically-based behaviours, such as under-educated school district personnel, in-denial teachers, or crabby relatives who confuse disability-related behaviour with willful MISbehaviour. :-)
Still In Mind
My son (age 7) and I have enjoyed reading this book together. I considered buying it for over a year, but was discouraged by the negative reviews here.

When I finally got it, I was puzzled by some of the criticisms leveled at the book. I didn't find the introduction to be melodramatic; in fact, it struck me as being as matter-of-fact as an AS kid might be in the face of the situation (he has behaved extremely inappropriately at a dinner honoring his father). As for the mom crying, I would have cried in that situation, too (and I don't know another mother who has a kid with AS who hasn't cried over her child's behavior at some point).

As for the comments that this book presents a single view of AS: it's written in *first person*. Of course it only presents one view of the diagnosis! Going through the book with your child and pointing out the ways in which he/she is both similar to and different from the narrator is a great way to practice understanding similarities and differences among people in general.

I recommend this book highly. Also, I'd like to mention that it arrived much more quickly than I expected; I got it in about a week.
Book was highly recommended by my son's therapist who has used it with many kids. The content is decent, but I really didn't like how it opened and closed with "I made mom cry again" and "mom cries less now"--my kid doesn't need any help feeling bad about himself. Also uses dated terminology (which was current with original printing) of "Asperger's Disorder", which isn't language I want my son to read. Still, therapist says none of the kids she's read it with have noticed either issue.
I bought this book for my son with the idea of using it when I first dicussed his diagnosis with him. After reading through it first though, I couldn't bring myself to do that. It's composed of little words and short simple sentences, and quite frankly, my Asperger's son is a walking dictionary. The last thing I wanted to do was give him the idea that he is intellectually impaired in addition to all his social issues. Yes, he takes language too literally, but he does it multisyllabically.

My boy did, however, very much enjoy the picture-book "All Cats have Asperger's." The language in that book is equally simplistic, but he was taken in by the comparisons to cats, which he loves.
Great resource!
What I hoped to expect. This book is witty and easy to understand. My grandson who is nine and just diagnosed with Aspergers was happy with the book. I would recommend the book to others.
very helpful in helping my son understand his new diagnosis. short, easy to read.
Was working with a child with Aspergers and gave this to him and his family. They loved it!
