Excellent book for children and adults and partners/family trying to understand AS......

"The Complete Guide to Aspergers Syndrome" by Professor Tony Attwood.

He does a lot of work with the clinic I attend (Minds and Hearts Clinic for AS and Autism) and I have heard him speak at our women with AS group. Lovely man and incredibly knowledgeable. He has given speeches and conferences all over the world.

Check it out if you like. Made my day when I started reading it and I still refer to it occasionally.

Take care,

Michah

I discovered two books which are brilliant if you or someone in your family has just had a diagnosis: 'Asperger's Syndrome: The Essential Guide' and 'Autism: A Parent's Guide', both by HIlary Hawkes. They're both on Amazon.
The person who wrote them also writes kids books and has a website which has a collecton of books aimed at kids who have disabilities/asperger's etc. There are online games and fun stuff aswell as the books. My youngest son, who as AS, loved the one called 'Jay in The Journey' - about a boy who has AS. The site is at www.hilaryhawkes.co.uk/strawberryjam books . Or just google the author's name. Def worth looking at.

Everyday Asperger's | Life through the eyes of a female with Aspergers
This is from a mother with Aspergers. Her son has it as well. It is a blog for Aspie girls from an Aspie girl. I love it! It's helped so much-she has a lot of information on there for the girls themselves, parents, friends and partners!

I dunno if this counts as a resource so I'll post my spiel here:


Adventures in Autism: A Late Diagnosis Story

People appear to have been enjoying it. So I want to try to reach others. I do speak about personal experiences but I also post about those of other individuals as well as studies and news articles, etc. I'm always open to suggestions on what I should write about so if there's something you'd like to read, let me know.

Despite being autistic all my life, I only found out about it last year. Beforehand I thought I was insane. Stumbly steps on the road to self-discovery as well as passing on information to others.

And attempts at humour.

If you think you'd be interested, you can follow on Tumblr or follow @ NyxBean on Twitter as all my posts go there as well.

Two other places you will tend to catch my posts from this are my https://uk.pinterest.com/nyxbean/ASD/ pinboard and https://uk.pinterest.com/nyxbean/my-aspergers/ pinboard. Another two which may see posts are https://uk.pinterest.com/nyxbean/asp...g-life-skills/ and https://uk.pinterest.com/nyxbean/lea...abilities-pdds.

I was professionally diagnosed using the DSM-IV. If it had been the DSM-5 then I'd simply be considered high-functioning autistic while the ICD-10 would still label me with Asperger's Syndrome (I believe). It's a mess, that's what it is! Either way, I still am an advocate for sensible and researched self-diagnosis because of the price tag in places like the United States, as well as a few other issues. This means you needn't worry about me being a little dictator on the matter. All are welcome. ^_^
