Links to Asperger's Syndrome Information

A blogging friend here asked me if I could provide her with some links on Asperger's Syndrome information. There is a lot of information on the subject online. One of the best sources is Tony Attwood's site. http://www.tonyattwood.com.au/ Attwood is one of the world's leading professionals on the disorder.

This is interesting.


I have ordered books from Kingsley Publishing and they have a large range of books and videos. They also have books that help teach kids about their Aspergers.


Lisa and the Lacemaker is a great read, as are Blue Bottle Mystery and Buster and the Amazing Daisy. There are also new ones out that help children understand their disorder. A particularly good book for younger kids is Who Took My Shoe? For other great titles for kids that deal with Aspergers Syndrome, check here.

Be sure to check out Children's Disability Information.

Some good information here. It explains exactly what Asperger's Syndrome is.

Hans Asperger recognized the disorder in 1944. Unfortunately the information took 50 years to make it to North America. Today there are many adults that haven't been diagnosed. This makes it very difficult to have successful relationships, keep jobs and function in society.

If you are in need of more information, please let me know. I'm always glad to help out.

  3. Hi--my son has it and we didn't realize it unfortunately until he was in his Junior year of High School--our High School hadn't even heard about it!! If I had known about it earlier it surely would have helped me to have more patience and it would have helped me to help him in his schooling etc. But he has succeeded with much work over the years. His aunt is in education up in NJ and she does training on it for other teachers. So although he is a bit strange ;_) and unique he has done well !!! He always got along better with adults , but he was accepted by his friends as they knew him better--he had a loving Christian group!

  4. nannykin,

    Asperger's is hard to deal with and without a diagnosis, your son must have found like very difficult. These kids do learn how to cope with their disorders. My grandson has come a long way in the last couple of years.

    Thanks for visiting. I wish your son well.
