Resources for Asperger Syndrome

I just read a great book for teens with Asperger Syndrome. It is called:

The Asperkid's Secret Book of Social Rules by Jennifer Cook O'Toole

She calls her book, "The handbook of Not-So-Obvious Social Guidelines for Tweens and Teens with Asperger Syndrome".

Jennifer really knows about Asperger Syndrome. Not only is she a person with Asperger Syndrome, she is married to a man with Asperger Syndrome and has three Asperger children.

She gives straight forward social rules presented with humor and a positive attitude. I think her book would be a great help for extremely logical people in helping them feel more confident around people and function more easily in society.

Another good author is Teresa Bolick, PH.D
She is a psychologist who specialized in Asperger Syndrome, autism, and  neurodevelopmental disorders. She shares ideas with parents and teachers from her twenty years of experience working with these children. Dr. Bolick explains the problems children and teens with Asperger Syndrome deal with and gives many suggestions on how to help them be more relaxed and successful in life.
