The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome is the definitive handbook for anyone affected by Asperger's syndrome. It brings together a wealth of information on all aspects of the syndrome for children through to adults.

Drawing on case studies and personal accounts from Attwood's extensive clinical experience, and from his correspondence with individuals with AS, this book is both authoritative and extremely accessible.

There is also an invaluable frequency asked questions chapter and a section listing useful resources for anyone wishing to find further information on a particular aspect of AS, as well as literature and educational tools.

Essential reading for families and individuals affected by AS as well as teachers, professionals and employers coming in contact with people with AS, this book should be on the bookshelf of anyone who needs to know or is interested in this complex condition.


This book should be considered as an essential resource for all therapists who come across children, adolescents and adults with AS

British Journal of Occupational Therapy

This is an outstanding book, and will probably become the definitive handbook for anyone working with people with Asperger's syndrome (AS) and their families.

Special Children Magazine

It is a brillant book - and doesn't leave my side in my work with clients with Asperger syndrome. Enjoy!

Speech and Language Therapy in Practice

Readers familiar with Attwood's work will be baying for this new "bible" and will not be disappointed... this is an excellent book and comes with the approval of Lorna Wing, the eminent British psychiatrist who first used the term Asperger's syndrome as a new diagnostic category within the autism spectrum.

Andrew Barley, Therapy Today

"Invaluable" and "Essential reading" are words often to be found in a review - but these really do apply to this book. In addition, "complete guide" is all too frequently used in a book title, but here the title is justified and totally accurate.

I usually say to the child, "Congratulations, you have Asperger's syndrome", and explain that this means he or she is not mad, bad or defective, but has a different way of thinking.
