Item description for TheAsperger Plus Child: How to Identify and Help Children with Asperger Syndrome and Seven Common Co-Existing Conditions by George T. Lynn & Joanne Barrie Lynn...
The Asperger Plus Child: How to Identify and Help Children with Asperger Syndrome and Seven Common Co-Existing Conditions is based on current research and the author s clinical observations from working with brilliant, wild, odd, and difficult children for fifteen years. It provides a map that helps them understand better at home and at school. The Asperger Plus Child is written for parents, teachers, counselors, and medical professionals. In this book, George Lynn continues the tradition of breaking new ground in his insights about the children he calls attention different. Some pearls from this work are: Why it is important to understand the real difference between autism and Asperger Syndrome. How you can tell if a child has AS or ADD and why the distinction will become more important as the child grows through his teen years. What a child with AS who also has a nonverbal learning disability looks like compared to a child with AS without an NLD! Though each child is as different as a fingerprint, neurology exercises a powerful force on character development: There are shared patterns, there are important differences. The Asperger Plus Child presents a commonsensical, interesting, and understandable description of these essential distinctions.

A Much Needed Perspective on Asperger Syndrome Jul 11, 2007
When you are a parent of a special child a diagnosis can be both a blessing and a curse. On the positive side, it can be a great relief because now you have a starting place to move out from to help your child live a full and wonderful life. You may have received a diagnosis or suspect that Asperger Syndrome is what you are dealing with, but your child's symptoms seem to be more than just the basic criteria...now what? This is where George Lynn steps in with his latest book The Asperger Plus Child to help you navigate the often turbulent and unpredictable waters! Keeping in the delightful spirit of his previous books, the author helps us to gain the knowledge and tools we need to help our child, always pointing out the wondrous and unique gifts they have, as well as the inner strength that we as parents have to tap into. This amazing book looks at Asperger Syndrome and the various co-existing disorders that may be present as well. The chapters are specific to each combination, well researched, extremely user-friendly, and filled with the encouragement and belief in our children and ourselves as their parents that George Lynn is famous for. The final chapter lays out a unique, easy to use tool designed by the author called A Character Map. It contains multiple yes/no questions that will help you to see what your child's diagnosis might be and then aid you in going to the specific chapter(s) in the book for help and understanding. This is a wonderful resource alone! As a parent of a special child and as a therapist, I am so grateful for this marvelous addition to my reference library and return to it continually for guidance, understanding, and inspiration for my own child as well as my clients. I eagerly await George Lynn's NEXT book!!
A Human Voice for Meaning and Therapy Mar 20, 2007
Perhaps the most striking feature of the ever growing literature on Asperger syndrome, is the paucity of psychological therapeutic exploration. Models of diagnosis and education intervention are dominant, but what about the identity needs of these growing children and their families? Both are in dire need of psychological care and and a framework of meaning. Mr. Lynn has provided another wonderfully courageous and soulful discourse that will be of benefit to all parents and professionals who share their lives with AS children. He understands so well, that diagnosis and symptom are only one perspective in viewing the inherrent mystery and complexity of human psychology. Similarly, he is well grounded in the reality of the therapeutic and medical needs of this population. An excellent and much needed work to augment our psychiatric perspectives.
