Asperger's Resource

I am a researcher by nature. As a mom, I have purchased and read countless books by different authors who all have their own take on how to raise children. Once we decided to homeschool the first thing I did was start learning all I could - books, websites, message boards and anything else I could get in my hands. Our realization of Thatch's ADHD was no different, more books added to our bookshelf and more bookmarks on my computer.

And now Asperger's has entered our life...

When I asked what the one book was that all moms starting on this journey needed to read first, I got this answer time and again: The Complete Guide to Asperger's by Tony Attwood.

I thought I would share here just in case you ever have a child with Asperger's cross your path - friend, family member, a child in church or any other way.

Hi Jennifer,

I was touched by your blog on Asperger's. My son was diagnosed in November, and I could relate to your feelings. I am also homeschooling my children, and struggling a bit with that. I thought you might be interested in my blog as well.

I have been reading you blog for sometime. For a few months now I have been scratching my brain and seeing pieces to the puzzle come together. When I read a few of your posts about Asperger's I wept. Not because of anything you said, just seeing it all unfold. One post even sounded as if you had been a fly on the wall in our lives. ;0) Your blog has been a blessing. We had our first appt. with a developmentalist in our area yesterday. There will be more tests, more Doctors... our journey has officially begun. I think I have felt every emotion in the last month. I will definitely check out this book. Thank you for being so real, and sharing your story! Blessings!
