The Asperger Children's Toolkit
Developed specifically for children with Asperger Syndrome (AS) to use with a parent or carer, The Asperger Children's Toolkit is full of accessible information and snippets of wisdom about AS to promote mutual understanding. Likeable characters such as The Brain Guru, The Sensory Detective and The Social Scientist guide children through games and exercises designed to help them deal with particular areas of difficulty, including anxiety, social skills and emotional intelligence. A section is also devoted to the increasingly important issue of staying safe in the digital world, and provides children with the knowledge and skills they need to use the internet, social networking and text messaging safely.
Original and highly interactive, with attractive colour illustrations and cut-out-and-keep activities throughout, this is an essential toolkit for any family with a child with Asperger Syndrome.
