Ask Dr Tony

$38.95

Tony and Craig have chosen the chapters of the book by ranking the issues which cause the most stress to someone with autism. I found it interesting just to see the topics to think about how I am addressing them as a teacher, and how I can better support students to reduce this stress to them.

These chapters serve as a GREAT reminder to put in systems and supports to reduce anxiety for people with ASD you know. I found it helpful to take a closer look at the stressors and to ask myself if I am addressing them for the kids I know. For instance, I was fascinated that 95% struggle with self-esteem and self-identity issues. Interestingly within this topic, Tony and Craig discuss homeschooling or public education – which is best?

This book plays out in a conversational style between Craig and Tony over all these different stressful situations. Craig brings personal anecdotes from his family life, asking questions and seeking solutions to common problems. It contains easy references for anyone who lives, works, or supports someone with Asperger’s.
