So your child has Asperger Syndrome (AS)? You might have noticed that some of his behavior is a bit different to most kids, that he becomes stressed when faced with change, and he doesn't cope well with criticism or failure. This book offers a fun and accessible introduction for the father or carer of a child diagnosed with AS. Intended as a support tool in the initial period after diagnosis, Fathering Your Special Child is varied and engaging, and addresses questions or concerns that Dad might have, such as 'What are the characteristics of AS?', 'How did my child get AS?,' and 'What happens now?'. Also included are poems, stories, illustrations, and activities to help Dad come to terms with and move forward from a diagnosis of AS, and work together with the family to support the child. Fathering Your Special Child will be essential reading for fathers and carers of children in the initial period after a diagnosis of AS.
