Useful Links: Intro to Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger's Syndrome is a relatively new concept that many people haven't had the opportunity of learning about. I have put together some links that may help in explaining what it is. An awareness of the traits of AS could help when meeting someone who has it. Aspies definitely have a different outlook on the world. It's not wrong, just different. Don't go around diagnosing people, just be aware AS is out there.     
  • Tony Attwood is the Yoda of Asperger's Syndrome. He's the go-to expert and author. Tony's web site is jam packed with info about AS, about Tony's activities, and about social groups and support for those affected by AS.    
  • John Elder Robison has AS and writes about it in his successful books such as Look Me In The Eye. I read the book years ago and became a fan. His site has the added bonus of a blog. There's also of course Facebook.
  • Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is one of the first organisations I was ever told about when discovering AS. It's the first site to visit if you think an Aussie is Aspie.
  • The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) has a beginner's guide to AS. The organisation is based in the USA to support research to further understand various disorders.
