From Like to Love for Young People with Asperger's Syndrome or Mild Autism

Learning How to Express and Enjoy Affection with Family and Friends

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Young people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have difficulty communicating like or love for someone physically and verbally. They may not know how to go about expressing themselves in these ways, or understand that family members and friends can find the absence of demonstrative affection troubling. This will be an invaluable resource for parents wanting to help their child who finds understanding or expressing affection difficult, and will help the child to build strong relationships and friendships.

Tony Attwood is a clinical psychologist with over thirty years of experience with individuals with autism spectrum disorders. He is the author of  the best-selling The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome. Michelle Garnett is a clinical psychologist and founder and Director of Minds & Hearts: A Specialist Clinic for Asperger's Syndrome and Autism.
