The Asperger Parent
How to Raise a Child With Asperger Syndrome and Maintain Your Sense of Humor

In this humorous and refreshingly honest book, Jeffrey Cohen, father of 11-year-old Josh, discusses what it's like to be the parent of a child with Asperger Syndrome. Based on Cohen's experiences raising his son, who was diagnosed with AS at the age of 5, "The Asperger Parent" provides essential information and emotional support without being clinical and dry. Cohen offers his insights in an easy-to-read, anecdotal tone. This book is a real treat for parents, especially those with newly diagnosed children. It covers every emotion an AS parent will feel - worry, sadness, anxiety, joy, pride, fear, triumph - and offers a light at the end of the tunnel. Forward by Lori Sheri.


Jeffrey Cohen is a freelance writer, screenwriter, teacher and author of the Aaron Tucker Mystery series, which features a character who has Asperger Syndrome. He has written articles for The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, USA Weekend, Writer's Digest, Parenting and many other publications, and his work has been developed by Jim Henson Productions, CBS, and numerous independent production companies. He has a son with Asperger Syndrome.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - I thought this book was great to get into, gave me a lot to think about as my son was only recently diagnosed. Gave a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. I think every parent in this situation would benefit greatly from this book, especially since it gives real life tips on what will you will most likely come across as your kids get older. Including how to handle unwanted advice/criticism!

Customer Review: Teri - I felt understood for the very first time since my son first started showing signs of Aspergers. I couldn't put it down because it was like someone was telling my story. It's packed with helpful, understanding advice. I encourage anyone who deals with an Aspergers child to make the time to read this, it is so worth it!
