Alenka Klemenc

Alenka Klemenc has a Master's degree in clinical psychology and works as a marriage and family therapist. Raising a child with Asperger's syndrome (AS) led her to dedicate herself to families with children who have autism spectrum disorders (ASD). She has put much personal effort into trying to get to know the inner world of children with AS – the way they think, feel and react. She started to make her own notes about it, which, after years, resulted in this book. Alenka also helped to organize a support group for parents of children with ASD at the University Children's Hospital in Ljubljana. As the professional leader of the group she listened to other parents' experiences and helped them to express their thoughts, emotions, worries and joys. She co-founded the Center for Integrative Medicine (www.celostnozdravljenje.si), where, as a therapist, she helps couples and families, especially those who are facing challenges raising children with ASD. She is the mother of three children and lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
