Support for those with a family member on the autistic spectrum. Asperger syndrome, which affects communication and social interaction, is a neurological disorder which is believed to affect more than 200,000 people in the UK. Unlike others on the autistic spectrum, those with Asperger syndrome often want to communicate, and to share their lives, but don't know how. This book looks at how families with an "Aspie" can help them be accepted for what they are, to lead full lives and to make the most of their unique gifts.
