A Book for Brothers and Sisters of Children Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome
My brother gets extra help from a special teacher. He has temper tantrums when he is angry and sometimes finds it hard to pay attention. He has even been to a special school to learn how to behave appropriately in class. He might be a little different from others in some ways ... but my brother is NOT STUPID!'This book offers a fun and accessible introduction for the sibling of a child diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS). Intended as a support tool in the initial period after diagnosis, You Are Special Too is varied and engaging, and addresses questions or concerns that the child might have, such as 'What's wrong with my brother?', 'Why has my sister got Asperger', and 'What about me?'. Also included are poems, stories, illustration and activities to help them come to terms with and move forward from a sibling's diagnosis of AS. You Are Special Too will be essential reading for children in the initial period after a sibling's diagnosis of AS.
