​Anyone looking for a straight-forward manual on exactly how to understand, nurture and teach children with Asperger syndrome is bound to be disappointed by this book – because no such thing could exist. As the author of this title makes clear, such youngsters are as different from each other as they are from their peers with no diagnosed neuropsychological disorder, and it’s a mistake to use the condition as an all-encompassing definition of who they are. However, given that the odds are largely in favour of most teachers encountering at least one pupil with Asperger’s in his or her career (and more likely, several), taking time to research the implications of what this could mean must surely be a wise move. Richard Bromfield offers compassionate insight and realistic advice for parents and educators, in what is perhaps above all, a celebration of human uniqueness.
