Product Overview

Raising a child with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) can be a great struggle and an exhausting fight for the rights of someone who is both gifted and different. In Natural Genius: The Gifts of Asperger's Syndrome, Susan Rubinyi tells the story of raising her son Ben and how she came to view his AS, and the gifts that come with it. Rather than examining the negatives and difficulties, she emphasizes the extraordinary positives of her son's life ? his photographic memory, perfect pitch and French-English bilingual abilities. Advocating a strengths-based approach, Rubinyi explains how her background in foreign language, science fiction and music, as well as her own feelings of alienation, have helped her to understand alternative and cross-cultural perspectives in life. Her journey with Ben is an enriching one of personal transformation. An immensely positive book, this should be read by anyone wishing to encourage the great reward that lie within the challenges of Asperger's Syndrome.
