Review:

In this comprehensive and unique guide, the author provides practical information and advice on issues ranging from puberty and sexual development, gender identity disorders couples' therapy to guidelines for sex education programs and maintaining sexual boundaries. This book will suit parents, teachers, counsellors and individuals with Asperger Syndrome. Author: The Spectrum

The book covers a myriad of topics relevant to the adolescent with Asperger Syndrome, such as body image, self-esteem, masturbation and personal hygiene. Topics for adults include contraception, libido, responsibility and decision-making. Many topics are illustrated with case examples and specific strategies to try (such as a daily hygiene chart). Author: Autism Victoria Library

This guide for people with AS and those who care for them presents practical information and advice on issues ranging from contraception to couple dynamics and gender identity. A number of worksheets and activities for the development of sociosexual skills are provided in the second half of the volume. The author is a psychologist specializing in sexual education and psychotherapy for people on the autism spectrum. Author: Book News

People who have AS are just as loving, caring and have a sex life just like anybody else. This book I am very impressed with. It is very rare. There is no research; sex education for AS needs research. Author: Asperger United
