This book has been designed as a resource for practitioners supporting adults with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome (AS) through the use of practical advice and ‘case vignettes’ for tackling ‘common problems’ facing AS adults. The development of the book was supported by the NHS trust and Surrey social services and could be considered as primarily for the use of health and social care professionals. It is suggested by the authors that a greater awareness of the problems faced by AS adults can make a huge difference to their lives. The authors contend that the advice given is easy to apply in practice and uses a person-centred approach. Despite this intention however, this text wholly fails in this regard for a number of reasons.
