Item description for Practical Solutions to Everyday Challenges for Children with Asperger Syndrome ( Solutions) by Haley Morgan Myles & M.D. Jeanette McAfee...

What do you say if you receive a gift you don't care for? How do you handle somebody who brags and shows off? What do you do at a social event where you don't know anybody? What do you do if somebody has a nose bleed? In this charmingly illustrated book, 9-year-old Haley Myles gives simple, no-nonsense suggestions and advice for how to handle these and other everyday occurrences that can be particularly challenging for children and youth with Asperger Syndrome. While the topics would be of interest to all children, the book is of particular interest to children with Asperger Syndrome ages 5 - 11.

Reviews - What do customers think about Practical Solutions to Everyday Challenges for Children with Asperger Syndrome ( Solutions)?

Very useful and helpful  May 25, 2007
This book is very useful and helpful for kids with Asperger's Syndrome and whoever else needs to be taught what things are appropriate to do and say in what situation.
A Writer Who Speaks to My Child's Needs  Apr 27, 2005
The day this book arrived in the mail, I hardly got a chance to take a good look at it before my then 10 year old son (with Asperger Syndrome) nabbed it and read it from cover to cover. The reason? He said, "Ohh, that's what THAT means!" It very much reminds me of a book I read last year called The Hidden Curriculum. In THAT book it discusses the importance of teaching the unstated rules of society to our kids on the autism spectrum. This book is a perfect example of this--it explains the simple unstated rules "everybody knows", but not everybody really knows them!Yes! A nine year old wrote this book, but it's FOR kids, and speaks in a way that they can understand. It covers the topics that are important to kids like mine AND, because it's NOT spoken by a grown up, he is more receptive to hearing it. I think this young author is absolutely amazing. And to those negative reviewers--ha ha, guess what? This book just so happened to be recently honored by the United Nations and it is being translated into about a zillion languages and put on cd so its message can be shared world-wide! Now that is quite an accomplishment for ANY author, much less "just a nine year old." I highly recommend this book. Just because it seems (as my kids say) "duh" to us, doesn't mean it is to OUR kids.

Unfortunate Offering  Jan 8, 2005
This book really was not helpful and the information offered to sell the book should lead with the fact that the author is only nine years old. It reads like something any slightly precocious nine year old would write about general behavior. There are no "solutions" that I could find in the content, nor any particular insights into the specific - and debilitating - challenges that children with Asperger Syndrome face. There are some helpful books written by and for young people with Asperger Syndrome. This book is not one of them.
Not helpful  Dec 11, 2004
There was little in here to help the high functioning kids. Much of the the advice was not detailed enough for an Aspie and above the head of many. It was a nice effort, but I did not find it worth the price.
I really wanted to love this book...  Jan 6, 2004 is such a great premise, and the author seems so thoughtful! However, it just isn't useful for our family. We've already discussed the rules covered here (except for some of the school-related ones, since we're homeschooling)with our 6-year-old son in greater detail than is found here. Two paragraphs of advice is not going to prepare my son to attend a wedding, for example.

Maybe as my son gets older, we'll find that he would appreciate hearing this advice from another child rather than from his parents. If that happens, I'll buy the book again (I'm returning it now).

This would be a great book to have in a support group lending library for a child to peruse, but it just isn't useful enough for our particular situation to keep on our shelf. I hope Ms. Myles writes a book on living on one's own when she's older--by the time my son is ready to do that, I imagine he would greatly prefer to follow a peer's advice than his mother's!
