Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Formatted Contents Note: Journeys and partnerships -- Self-regulation and "the four a's" -- You can't not communicate -- Memory, organization, and the executive functions -- Thinking and learning -- Passions, preoccupations, and routines -- Emotional competence -- Friendship and intimacy -- The rules of the (social) road -- Getting ready for the real world.
Summary, etc.: Sex. Slang. Slumber parties. The preoccupations of adolescents with Asperger syndrome are no different than those of other teens, but they can be much more confusing. The lack of social skills and ability to grasp conversational nuances that characterize AS make adolescence the most difficult life stage. Asperger Syndrome is characterized by a reliance on clear guidelines, and in adolescence the social guidelines become murky and confusing. In Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence, child psychologist Teresa Bolick presents strategies for helping the ten-to-eighteen-year-old achieve happiness and success by maximizing the benefits of AS and minimizing the drawbacks.
