Books Info:

What is it Like to be Me? free pdf Join Greg, a young boy with Asperger's syndrome (AS), as he tells us all about the world as he sees and experiences it. We learn about all the things he loves, including his routine and numbers, as well as his special interest in batteries (he even has a rectangular one!). Greg also tells us about the things that he finds challenging, from a change in his beloved routine to reading facial expressions, and how these things can sometimes leave him upset and overwhelmed. By explaining the way he feels and how best to calm him down when it all gets too much, Greg helps us to understand AS and how it affects the way he views the people and objects around him. With comprehensive sections for parents and professionals on AS and the impact it can have on the family unit and life in the wider community, this charmingly illustrated book helps to increase awareness and understanding of Asperger's syndrome. It will be of interest to families of children with autism spectrum disorders, as well as teachers and other professionals working with children on the autism spectrum.

About Alenka Klemenc

Alenka Klemenc has a Master's degree in clinical psychology and works as a marriage and family therapist. Raising a child with Asperger's syndrome (AS) led her to dedicate herself to families with children who have autism spectrum disorders (ASD). She has put much personal effort into trying to get to know the inner world of children with AS - the way they think, feel and react. She started to make her own notes about it, which, after years, resulted in this book. Alenka also helped to organize a support group for parents of children with ASD at the University Children's Hospital in Ljubljana. As the professional leader of the group she listened to other parents' experiences and helped them to express their thoughts, emotions, worries and joys. She co-founded the Center for Integrative Medicine (www.celostnozdravljenje.si), where, as a therapist, she helps couples and families, especially those who are facing challenges raising children with ASD. She is the mother of three children and lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
