Additional Information

Many teenagers with Asperger's Syndrome leave school feeling unsure of how to take the next steps in their lives. Leaving the comforts of home and facing the unknown can be daunting, but with the right support and advice these young adults can adapt and enjoy their newly-acquired independence.

Filled with useful advice, easy-to-apply techniques, and insights from both the author's own experiences of Asperger's Syndrome and those of his students, this book is a practical guide for helping young adults on the spectrum achieve independence and learn life-long skills of self-knowledge, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy. With chapters on social skills, handling finances, keeping healthy, and succeeding in higher education or first employment, Dr. McManmon provides the encouragement that any young Aspie needs to make the transition from an adolescent into a happy, confident and engaged adult.

This book will be essential reading for parents, young adults with Asperger's Syndrome, high-functioning autism or learning differences, and any professionals who work with them.

Pie in the sky stuff. Not research based. Not evidence based. Too much personal feeling and insight. And not well written. This guy is no Temple Grandin.
I found Made For Good Purpose to be very insightful. It's easy to read and contains practical information for parents with young adults who have Aspergers or other Learning Differences who are trying to transition to independence. The transition is not always an easy road, and this book offers some inspiring stories and sound advice.
LOVE this book, a must have for every parent with an Aspberger's or Autistic child. Only points out the positive aspects of the condition, which are many! Another great book by this author, Diagnosing Jefferson, a must read too!
