Publisher's Summary

Asperger's Syndrome, or high-functioning autism, is a form of autism that falls on the autism spectrum. Asperger's Syndrome can be seen in adults and in children if you know what to look for. Many people who can be described as hypersensitive, odd or eccentric have Asperger's Syndrome which has gone undiagnosed. Some of the greatest comedians, singers, actors and inventors have Asperger's syndrome. They specialize in what they are good at, and they can become highly successful in doing so.

In this book, we will discuss the different overt and covert traits that can be seen in those with Asperger's Syndrome in its list form. If you feel that you or someone you know has Asperger's, it is essential to have the diagnosis confirmed so that the Asperger's person can seek help in learning the skills that are essential to making them more successful in their ambitions.

Asperger's Syndrome children and adults have an underdeveloped brain on MRI scans. They lack the brain development in certain areas that help them to keep up with their peers. They may be advanced in specialty areas, but they may lag behind their peers in normal development of other areas. Their nervous system and their emotions are often sensitive. They often feel alienated from their peers, as though they do not fit in. Asperger's can cause depression, and possibly even suicide, if it not recognized early.

Aspies

Short and really see no need for it as Aspergers needs thorough explanation for folks to grasp this disease or condition.

Very Helpful

What did you love best about 56 Traits of Aspergers Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, and Autism Spectrum Disorders?

I found that the descriptions or personality traits of children and adults very helpful in identifying the "whys" of how certain people act.

What does Mike Norgaard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It was calm and easy to listen to. And, I could do a couple of other things while he was narrating. Multi tasking...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

For anyone who has, or thinks they have, an Aspie in their lives - this is an easy listen/read that offers helpful insights.

inside the box

It's a very narrow look at some "possible" Aspergers traits without qualifying things that are different about Aspies since autism is a spectrum we don't all fit into the same little box, female Aspies in particular are overlooked and under diagnosed because of silly conformist lists like this. I found this disappointing.
