Asperger's and Self-Esteem
Insight and Hope Through Famous Role Models
Other Editions of This Title:
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.
