The Asperkid’s (Secret) Book of Social Rules: The Handbook of Not-So-Obvious Social Guidelines for Tweens and Teens with Asperger Syndrome
I am a big fan of plain language that is geared towards the audience. The more simple and straight forward, the better. This book is one that I believe accomplishes that for autistic kids. Obviously this book was written prior to the phasing out of Asperger’s Syndrome from the DSM, but it doesn’t make it any less relevant. This book is written towards teens and tweens trying to navigate an already difficult part of life. It has some good stories in there, and the author is very straight forward with her life, analyzing things that happened before her diagnosis as an adult to put them in perspective. While great for kids, this book is just a fun read all together.
