Hi, I'm Craig Kendall, the author of The Asperger's Syndrome Survival Guide.

An Aspergers Adult Who Was Diagnosed at Age 24 and His Struggles to Learn Social Skills

I get many emails asking me about adults with Aspergers. What if my son (or daughter) has not been diagnosed and they are adults? Or what if your son/daughter was just diagnosed and they are already adults?

Others have asked me how their adult children can gain social skills at a late age and how to speak with them so that they can relate.

I have found this special video about a young man who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at the age of 24.  He talks about his "hellish time at school" and why he didn’t fit in and the relief when he was finally diagnosed.

He has now met other AS people in support groups. He speaks of the challenges of a working adult with Aspergers and how his social deficiencies lead him to be seen as “not a team player”.

He discusses the torment he suffered at school which still gives him social anxiety today; and how he struggles with the label of "disabled."

Over time, he has learned to overcome some of his Aspergers related symptoms. He shares some of the techniques he uses successfully to handle Aspergers symptoms such as his difficulty of looking people in the eyes (he looks at the tip of their nose which works for him).

He is still learning the art of conversation and socializing, in general.  The years of being teased motivated him to learn social skills today and he is now forcing himself to be around people because he doesn’t want to be isolated. 

In my guide, I discuss many techniques that can help Aspergers adults. Many of these are included in my bonus guide, "Making the Transition to Adulthood" which is included free with my book.  I hope you enjoy this video.
