What is it Like to be Me? : A Book About a Boy with Asperger's Syndrome Hardback

Illustrated by Ursa Rozic

Description

Join Greg, a young boy with Asperger's syndrome (AS), as he tells us all about the world as he sees and experiences it.

We learn about all the things he loves, including his routine and numbers, as well as his special interest in batteries (he even has a rectangular one!).

Greg also tells us about the things that he finds challenging, from a change in his beloved routine to reading facial expressions, and how these things can sometimes leave him upset and overwhelmed.

By explaining the way he feels and how best to calm him down when it all gets too much, Greg helps us to understand AS and how it affects the way he views the people and objects around him. With comprehensive sections for parents and professionals on AS and the impact it can have on the family unit and life in the wider community, this charmingly illustrated book helps to increase awareness and understanding of Asperger's syndrome.

It will be of interest to families of children with autism spectrum disorders, as well as teachers and other professionals working with children on the autism spectrum.
