Asperger's and Self-Esteem: Insight and Hope Through Famous Role Models

Author(s): Norm Ledgin

The author of Diagnosing Jefferson introduces twelve more high-achieving role models—including Einstein, Mozart, and Darwin—who have made significant contributions to our world. All exhibited traits common to people with Asperger’s Syndrome. Today’s young people and adults with AS can also make a difference if they are given support, opportunities, and the freedom to explore their abilities. Many accomplished people have been loners, self-taught, obsessed by an idea, and known for their lack of social skills. How many of them would be diagnosed with Asperger’s today? Norm Ledgin makes convincing arguments for an Asperger’s role in each of their extraordinary lives.

"I was riveted from the moment I started this book until I put it down at the last page.

This book is going to be both lighthouse and life raft for parents, giving them
something to aim for and the way to get there. Parents of an AS child (whether girl or boy) who are trying to procure a diagnosis or who have a diagnosis but don’t know what to do next, Ms. Clark has provided you with a map.

Thanks to books like this and the parents and professionals who take the time to read them, many more little Aspergirls will have the future they deserve."
