Einfach ein großartiges Buch: Die Tochter erhält die Diagnose Asperger und die Mutter erkennt sich - endlich - in dieser Diagnose wieder. Sie beschreibt im Rückblick ihre Lebensgeschichte und reflektiert es nun in Kenntnis der Asperger-Diagnose. Ernst, lustig und voller Anekdoten. Dabei immer spannend, denn man wartet darauf, wie der nächste Lebensabschnitt bis zur Hochschullehrerin mit drei Kindern verlaufen wird - und welchen Anteil das Asperger-Syndrom dabei hat. Ein Extrakapitel widmet sie den Ereignissen, als Asperger-Autistin Kinder zu haben. Sehr offen, in klaren Worten und schnörkellos beschrieben - und dabei doch sehr ins Detail gehend. Sie beschreibt Gefühle intensiver, als so mancher Mensch ohne Asperger. Sie muss die Gefühle für sich genau beschreiben, um sie zu verstehen. "Auch wenn es 38 Jahre lang gedauert hat - ich kann gar nicht deutlich genug sagen, was für eine Erleichterung es war, mich endlich selbst zu finden!" Ein gelungenes Ende findet das Buch mit zahlreichen Checklisten für alle Lebensbereiche. Hier gibt Liane H. Willey viele wichtige Hinweise, worauf man als Asperger-Autist achten sollte (bei der Ausbildung, der Arbeit, in Beziehungen etc.). Mit einem sehr persönlichen Vorwort von Tony Attwood Das Buch: „Meine Tochter hat Asperger!" Liane Willey hatte von dieser Krankheit noch nie gehört, und nun erfährt sie: Unter Asperger oder „High-function-Autismus" leiden viele Menschen, ohne es zu wissen - „besondere" Menschen, die zu zurückgezogenem oder egozentrischem Verhalten neigen, die oft hoch begabt sind, aber an Selbstwertproblemen, Überempfindlichkeit, Unsicherheit, Verzweiflung leiden. Sie fühlen sich mitunter wie „Ausländer im eigenen Land" oder wie „Außerirdische, die auf einem falschen Planeten gelandet sind". Die Diagnose ihrer Tochter verändert ihr Leben, denn Liane Willey begreift, dass sie seit Jahrzehnten mit den gleichen Symptomen zu kämpfen hatte: „Ich kann die Erleichterung nicht ausdrücken, die ich empfand, als ich schließlich realisierte, dass meine Tochter und ich nicht an einer Geisteskrankheit oder einer gespaltenen Persönlichkeit litten oder etwas Ähnlichem. Wir haben Asperger. Damit können wir leben! Wir können unsere Ziele und Träume erreichen, und wir können unser Leben weiterführen - mit Optimismus und Hoffnung. Wie aufregend die Erkenntnis, dass ich ganz einfach Dinge anders sehe, anders auffasse, anders empfange als andere und dass das so in Ordnung ist. Es ist meine Normalität." Liane Willey erzählt ihre Lebensgeschichte von der frühen Kindheit über die Schul- und Collegezeit bis zum Leben als Berufstätige und Mutter von drei Kindern. Sie macht deutlich, wie die Welt von einer „Aspie" erlebt wird - von den Strategien, mit denen es ihr gelang, ihren eigenen Weg zu finden, aber auch von dem oft erheblichen Leidensdruck, der damit einherging. In einem Anhang folgen praktische Hinweise „von immenser Präzision, was die Vorschläge (und Erfahrungen) angeht, im Alltag Probleme zu bewältigen, die sich einem Menschen mit Asperger-Autismus stellen" (Ulrich Rabenschlag). Ein persönliches Buch, das die Menschen, die Asperger haben - einer großen europäischen Studie zufolge in Deutschland pro Jahrgang ca. 5000 Menschen -, in ihrer Besonderheit versteht und ihnen Achtung und Sympathie entgegenbringt. Ein spannender Fallbericht nicht nur für Betroffene, sondern auch für Eltern, Erzieher, Lehrer, Psychologen und Ärzte.

Pretending to be Normal tells the story of a woman who, after years of self-doubt and self-denial, learned to embrace her Asperger's syndrome traits with thanksgiving and joy. Chronicling her life from her earliest memories through her life as a university lecturer, writer, wife and mother, Liane Holliday Willey shares, with insight and warmth, the daily struggles and challenges that face many of those who have Asperger's Syndrome.

The last part of the book consists of a series of substantial appendices which provide helpful coping strategies and guidance, based on the author's own experience, for a range of situations. This positive and humane book will provide not only insight into the Asperger world which will prove invaluable for the professionals who work with people with Asperger's Syndrome, but also hope and encouragement for other people with Asperger's Syndrome, their families, and their friends.

This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS. `There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

Learning How to Express and Enjoy Affection with Family and Friends

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 224

View: 4442

If your child rarely shows you that he or she loves you, it can be profoundly distressing. This is the experience of many parents of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and most fear that it reflects the truth. In fact the truth has generally more to do with the difficulty that young people with an ASD have in communicating like or love for someone physically and verbally. They may not know how to go about expressing themselves in these ways, or understand that family members and friends can find the absence of demonstrative affection upsetting. This book, by world leading experts Tony Attwood and Michelle Garnett, addresses this issue in practical terms. They provide carefully designed activities for parents to work through with their children to help them to understand and express affection. Their child will learn to identify his or her own and others' comfort and enjoyment range for gestures, actions and words of affection and the different ways to express feelings for someone, appropriate to each relationship and situation. The activities are simple, straightforward, and very carefully structured, so that they can be undertaken at the pace that works for the individual family. The book also guides the adult through the challenges faced by the child, leading to greater understanding and confidence in their relationship with their child, and increased ability to nurture the child's ability to form engaged relationships and friendships with others. Readers of Tony Attwood's previous books will recognise his warm, positive and empowering approach. The book will be a transformative resource for parents and family worried about their child's emotional life.
