A Book for Grandparents of Children Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. 'So your grandchild has Asperger Syndrome (AS)? You might have noticed that some of his behaviour 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 grandparent of a child diagnosed with AS.
Intended as a support tool in the initial period after diagnosis, Your Special Grandchild is varied and engaging, and addresses questions or concerns that grandparents might have, such as 'What are the characteristics of AS?', 'How did my grandchild get AS?' and 'What happens now?'. Also included are poems, stories, illustrations and activities to help grandparents come to terms with and move forward from a diagnosis of AS, and work together with the family to support the child.
Your Special Grandchild will be essential reading for grandparents of children in the initial period after a diagnosis of AS.
