Dear Fellow Aspergers Supporter,

If you're supporting a child, spouse or other
loved one who has Asperger's Syndrome, this
will be the most important website you've ever found.
I'm going to reveal exactly how you can get a
full arsenal of proven coping strategies and techniques
to help you deal with your loved one's Asperger's
Syndrome AND to help your loved one successfully
live with Aspergers.
8 year old has Asperger’s and we use the guide /
information you make available to us everyday in
our lives -- such as decreasing anxiety, how
to prepare for the next year & how others can help
us. I am attaching a photo of our son Chance-8 years
old and is making progress everyday. I also sent
a family picture from Christmas. He works very hard
at everything he does. Thanks for being there for
my family and others.

book was an answer to prayer and we’re thankful
for all the insight it provided. It gave us a grip
on what had seemed so “vague” before and provided
practical “how-to’s” on how to cope with this condition.
I actually summarized what you shared and took my
“findings” to a meeting at school with my son’s
7th grade teachers...I believe we are more “fruitful”
instead of as “frustrated” now and more prepared
for the our unique journey ahead. We have hope
and we are excited and we are thankful for your
hope this reaches out to those who have young ones
with Aspergers for this will help answers those
"whys and why nots". Great book! Two High Fives
and a big Hug to you Craig for all your strength
in getting this out there to us! Thanks again! Lavonne Sturm, Cheney WA
I have found your
books both helpful and a big relief on how to help
my grandson. I read your news letters and books,
take notes and pass the original on to my daughter
and her husband. They have offered so much help
and hope that I find it hard to describe. God
Bless you for your hard work and your caring so
much that you do what you do. Thank you so much
for what you are doing.
Sincerely, Connie Watson
just started your book 2 days ago. It's like
I’ve been starving & it's food! It's nice to read
stuff where I don't feel like my 7 yr old is defective.
I’ve known that all along the main reason I even
want to put a label on her differences is because
I want to be a better, more effective mom to her.
Thanks for the time & effort you put into researching
this & writing your books to help others like me.

to help my son and my own understanding of what

"Asperger's Syndrome Guide
for Teens and Young Adults", and "The Asperger's
Syndrome Survival Guide". Both were amazing and
helped me realize that my son has gifts, rather
than being a problem child like the school was always
referring to him as. My quote to them was always
that he was a child with problems, not the other

name is Matt Turner from Australia. I have a 6 y.o.
with Aspergers (fairly mild). I found your work
insightful and helpful - my wife is a doctor
and spent many hours wading through medical texts
to no avail. Our son Finley Turner is a very
bright, friendly, healthy, unconditionally loved
boy who can lose it sometimes. The guide helped
us understand what to do and it helps him as much
as us. Thanks for the work and I have recommended
you to other parents in similar situations.
Matt Turner, Australia
Thank you so much for your wonderful book.
My son is 23 now. I had him tested through the years,
and no significant diagnosis was ever given. It
saddens me that I could have done so much more for
him when he was going through the social pains of
childhood if I would have had this knowledge about
Aspergers. I am so thrilled with your research
and the fact you are willing to share it with so
many people. His father is having difficulty
understanding our Son and his "quirks". I now have
the tools you have put together to help us both
understand how we can be there for our son. Reading
your book is totally "enlightenment".
God Bless You

you have provided. Thank you most sincerely

Cynthia Smith, Tulsa, Ok
I have found your guide
very helpful.I am continually trying to
gain knowledge on this subject and no one source
has been very helpful until your book. I find
having a special child is a "special" gift that
not all family and friends can understand or respect
for that matter! I am always happily encouraged
to read books like this which give me hope and help
me to explain to my child and others that this is
not a bad thing but, a gift that I haven't fully
figured out. Each new day with Gracie brings
new challenges and new found talents that are unique
to her because of the Aspergers or PDD. I thank
you again for your time consuming work on this book
to benefit all of us who have the responsibility
of being the best parents we can to of special children.
Sincere Thanks! Mary Pead

From down here in New Zealand,
I have found your Survival Guide a very good
and a concise record of all one needs to know about
this Syndrome. I have a grandson now 12 years
old with AS. To cut a longer story short he now
has some recognition from his School of his disability
and has a resource person to help him. Keep up the
good work. I find your continuing resource material
through e-mail very useful (i.e. most recently
the Video of a student I think in his mid twenties
who found out he had AS). The practical tip to look
at a person's nose (rather than looking into his
eyes) when speaking so not to be intimidated is
an example of a useful practice to try out.

was pleasantly surprised by the consistency, and
thoroughness of the topics. I think this is
a valuable tool for anyone who has someone with
Aspergers or knows some who has Aspergers. I
think this was a valuable tool for me because
as a parent we all need a kick in the butt and stay
on task, constantly fighting, updating and communicating
with caregivers, teachers and finding tools for
our children. Keep it up!

about these e-mails. Getting an e-mail and or video

While my son, now age 5 has
not yet been formally diagnosed the ASD, his teacher
thought that his interaction with others required
investigation. The Asperger's Syndrome Survival
Guide has given me a very clear understanding of
the condition and the most important issues that
need addressing in my child. In fact it enabled
me to sort out all the mumbo jumbo being given to
me from "health professionals" and gave me the knowledge
and strength to stand up to all the different courses
of action being recommended by well meaning people.

at my sons school - who definitely didn't understand
ASD) So thank you very much for your well written

I am the grandparent of a nine
year old recently found to have Asperger's. While
there is growing press awareness here about Asperger's,
most of the general public would see a child as
being difficult and especially so should there be
a public meltdown. I, and others close to him, have
only very recently become aware of the point of
view of someone with Asperger's. Your book has
been very helpful with regard to this. The newsletter
helps to remind me of aspects or gives additional
light.I much admire your dedication.
It is a reminder to me continue to aspire in that
direction, hopefully with the more productive results
that can come from better understanding.

The benefit of your book
has been that I can argue my case about my son to
the so called "experts". We just finished our
psych eval last week and have yet to get the results.
I paid for this out of my own pocket. The intern
(college student) spent about 10 hours with my Asperger
son. She said her results are not conclusive just
yet but that she is leaning towards anxiety. ANXIETY!!!!!!!!!!!
My son fits all the classic signs and symptoms
of Asperger's and I would not know this if I did
not have your book. For 6 years now we have been
trying to find what is wrong with this kid. Until
I read your book I honestly didn't have a clue.
UTMB ruled out Manic Bipolar and steered me towards
the PDD-NOS. That's when I found your book online.

a great help to me. I have a little 4 y.o. boy

a challenge to know how to give a lesson in a way

relate to him much better, as I now understand why
he cries and gets distressed when we go into
a classroom that has a faulty microphone which sometimes
gives out a high pitched shriek, and why he insists
on sitting on the same chair, in the same spot each
week. I thank the Lord that I was able to receive
your Newsletters and thank you VERY MUCH for them.

The Survival guide has been
incredible! We are currently "waging war" with
our son's school district because they don't feel
he is autistic enough to warrant services geared
towards Aspergers. Having read up on Aspergers and
knowing it is more that just ADHD and distractibility,
has renewed our hope for our son. Getting the
Aspergers diagnosis and reading this guide finally
gave us the last pieces to the puzzle we call Tucker
(our son). It all makes much more sense now.
Thanks a ton!

You have helped me realise
that my husband and son do not suffer from Aspergers
BUT some of the behaviour is similar and it has
helped me detach from it as a characteristic of
them rather than something wrong with me. It
has changed my life. You are doing a great job…

Thank you so much for your quality work! I found
your books to be helpful. Generally, the info

Asperger’s information to parents is greatly appreciated!).
Thank you again kindly,

When I first purchased the
book I was not entirely sure if my son had Aspergers
and as I read it I thought no he does not fit those
criteria. However, as time has passed and my son
has gotten that bit older (he will be 8 on the 22
Apr) I have been observing him more closely and
in the last week he was actually confirmed by an
eminent Professor as having both Aspergers and ADD.
I then went back to your book and read it again
and could see so much more and was very interested
to see what the future holds. I have read a number
of other books in the recent past but found your
book to be very practical from the schooling point
of view and what to expect so thanks for your help.
Good luck and kind regards,

He would go into his

He would stare completely

out and basically have
like a temper tantrum.
It was a severe temper

I got out of The

the way he puts it into
laymen's terms and understanding

And I think it helped
that he has a child

And the information
on support groups.
Amanda T., Inverness,
I know you want
your loved one to achieve those dreams. But right now, they
seem out of reach, don't they?
I know. Because two years ago,
I was standing in your shoes.
I was typing the phrase
"Asperger's Syndrome" into every search engine on the
Internet just hoping to find a magic solution that
I read through website
after website trying to track down answers. I searched for
reasons, guidance, even just someone to talk to. All I found
was the same old rehashed information on Asperger's Syndrome
… nothing useful. And certainly nothing that told me how
to help a loved one cope with Aspergers.
It was incredibly frustrating.
I was literally at the end of my rope … because every
day seemed like one long, never-ending bad dream that I
couldn't wake up from.
You see, my son, Alex,
who has Asperger's Syndrome, was in the middle of a major
Aspergers episode … he was terribly unhappy. It was
so difficult to communicate with him. He was running away
from home and couldn't get along with any of his peers.
All the days of worrying and yelling had taken their toll
on my wife and me (the same feeling you've probably had
with taking care of your loved one – the stress is incredible,
I Needed Answers
The Internet was just
the start for me. I devoured everything I could find at
the library, including boring, technical medical journals
and dozens of books. I tracked down every Aspergers expert
I could find. And during our journey, my wife and I went
from knowing nothing about Aspergers and having NO idea
how to help him … to becoming an expert who has been able
to help him build friendships, stay organized and do well
And after my months of
research … I can tell you one thing for sure: if you're
supporting a loved one with Aspergers, you have a better
chance of winning one of those multi-state lotteries than
of finding the information you need to help your loved one
SUCCESSFULLY cope with Aspergers.
Why? Because nearly all of the information
that's available is produced by doctors and professors
who have a clinical relationship with Asperger's Syndrome
– NOT by people who are living with the disorder day
in and day out.
But you don't need cold,
clinical theories from physicians who spent a few hours
a day tending patients with Aspergers. You need coping
strategies that work … from people who walked in your shoes
day in, day out.
Here's the second thing
I can tell you for sure: if you don't get your hands
on proven coping strategies – and soon – your loved one
may never learn the skills necessary to have lasting relationships,
to do well in school, to hold down a job, and to live a
successful happy life.
Want proof? Let me
tell you how my family has been affected by my son's long
struggle with Aspergers.
Years Of Not Understanding
My Son's Condition
When Alex was very young,
my family didn't understand Alex's condition. We
did not know what to do when my son had another episode.
We could often see it coming -- the screaming matches when
he tried to play with boys his age. Hitting his brother
because he "cheated" at basketball -- nobody seemed to play
by Alex's rules. We didn't know what to do. We weren't knowledgeable
about Aspergers. We simply pretended like it didn't exist.
In fact, no one in my
house, not even me, used the word "Aspergers".
When he went into an
episode, we just sat back and hoped that he'd either
get over it on his own or out grow it.
My Wife and I Got
About a month into summer
vacation several years ago, I started to notice that
Alex was getting more and more upset. I could see changes
in him, but I didn't know it had anything to do with Aspergers.
We weren't talking to any therapists or doctors about it
because we thought it was unique to Alex. Slowly, things
Two months into summer
vacation, my son was really bad. Unstructured time was a
serious problem. Alex needed everything to be planned with
no deviation to his schedule. He became very agitated
and withdrawn and starting yelling at everyone who tried
to talk to him.
I could see things go
from bad to worse. He had been threatening to run away
from home and now he disappeared.
Finally He Ran Away
Alex had been saying
that everyone hated him. After all, he got into arguments
with anyone he played with. My heart sank when he said that
my wife and I hated him too. He had threatened to run away
from home, then he disappeared.
We looked everywhere,
we called the neighbors and I started driving around the
neighborhood in my car looking for him. We were
terrified. Just before we called the police, my wife
found Alex hiding under the cabinets in the bathroom.
Thank God he was safe.
This time it wasn't like
the other times, it was much worse.
My son was turning
into a completely different person. We were so scared
for him. He was so sad. He wanted friends but got into arguments
whenever he played with them.
He would say mean
things to his family and friends. He alienated
somany of his classmates and the neighborhood children
in just a short period of time.
He Was Bullied Mercilessly At School
Every day, my son was picked on.
The bullies on the playground would torment my son. He didn't
know how to stand up for himself and the school did nothing
We complained to the school but MY son
was the one getting in trouble. The bullies understood
how to avoid getting into trouble and finally my son would
hit one of them and HE would be the one who got into trouble!
The Withdrawal Started
If that wasn't bad
enough, my son started withdrawing from the world. The
only thing he wanted to do was play on his computer. He
was fixated by certain games and never played with anything
else. He didn't seem to care if he was completely alone
in the world.
It was so bad that we
worried that he would not do his homework because it was
not in his narrow scope of subjects he focused on.
I Got Fed Up
One day after he screamed
at his brother for about an hour, I started to get really
mad (but not mad at him, though).
I was mad that
I didn't know what was wrong.
I was mad that
it didn't seem like anything could help him.
I was mad that
neither his teachers nor his doctor was doing anything except
pretending the problem would fix itself.
And I was mad that
I didn't have any information. I didn't even know the
correct name for what he had.
I Decided It Was Time
For My Son To Get Help
My wife and I finally
decided it was time for Alex to see a specialist.
Of course he did not want to go. But we had to insist. We
went to his pediatrician but he didn't seem too concerned.
He said that a lot of boys act out and he couldn't find
anything physically wrong with him.
The Doctor Didn't
Have A Clue
When I did talk to
the doctor, he didn't have a clue. He didn't think that
my son was "that bad." He said that he was just immature
for his age and ran a bunch of tests.
I asked him many other
questions, too, but he didn't have any answers. He
couldn't give me one single answer!
But it also made me realize
that he was part of the problem, not part of the solution.
A Family Friend Recommended
We brought Alex to a
therapist that a friend recommended. She met with our son
and we finally got answers to some questions.
After several sessions, she put a name to it –
Asperger's Syndrome. At first I was upset that there really
might be something wrong with my son, but at least now
I had an idea what was wrong. My quest was on to learn
as much as I could to help my son.
I Went To The Library
I decided to visit
a library in my area to find some answers. When I went
in, I felt nervous about asking the reference librarian
for help finding information on "Asperger's Syndrome."
I didn't know if they had any information at all
or really would help.
Thankfully, I was wrong.
Everyone in the library was very helpful. That wasn't the
The problem was that
there weren't very many books on Asperger's Syndrome.
There were zillions of books on weight loss, gardening,
cooking, and living with other health problems but there
were no books on how to cope with someone who has Asperger's
The books I did find
spend most of the time talking about what Aspergers is and
why people have Asperger's Syndrome, but they never talked
about the kinds of issues I was facing with my son...
such as how to get the right treatment, what treatments
work, how to make long lasting friends, how to help them
get a good job, etc.
Plus, most of the
books about Asperger's Syndrome were too technical to be
easily understood or were written by Aspergers people for
Aspergers people. Neither type of book was helpful to
me, so there was a huge gap in the knowledge base.
That's why I started
finding other sources of information. I read articles, college
textbooks, and similar materials. Plus, I started finding
After about 30 days
of MASSIVE research, I finally could say that I had
a handle on the situation and could identify most of the
mistakes we were making.
However, I didn't
stop there. Over the next few months, I started interviewing
parents, therapists, hospital workers, social workers, and
individuals that have Aspergers. I read blogs and support
groups and started compiling information, making notes,
and creating checklists. As I was doing all of this, my
main goal was to support my loved one.
I Decided To Learn
Everything There Was To Know
After that, I decided
to work full time on my Aspergers research in order to learn
everything that I could about Asperger's Syndrome. I
contacted support groups, conducted surveys and interviewed
people. I spent lots of time and money because I had to
pay many of these people to talk to me and because I wasn't
able to earn money elsewhere.
All of my research was
worth it. Here's how it's helped my son:

this information has made in my life and in my family's
life has been amazing. Helping my son is so much
easier these days. I only wish I had found all of
this out years ago.
Although my story
has a positive ending, I met many people during
my research whose stories were not ending well.
So many of them were desperate to find some answers
that would help their loved one, but they didn't
have the time, money and energy to do the same amount
of massive research I had undertaken. They were
struggling to make it through each day, constantly
sick with worry that something horrible would
happen to their loved one before the Aspergers was
brought under control.
Which of These
Questions Are You Desperate to Answer?
struggling to answer questions
"What is Asperger's Syndrome exactly … and did
I do something that caused this?"
"Why has it been so hard to get an accurate
"How is the initial diagnosis made ... and how
early can it be detected?"
"How do I find a good doctor and therapist?"
"How do Asperger's symptoms change through childhood,
teen years and adulthood?"
"How can I help my loved one make and keep friends?"
"What are the treatment options for Asperger's
Syndrome … and which will work best?"
"Does my loved one really need to be medicated
"Which medications are most common and which
are seen as most effective?"
"What are the signs that an Aspergers episode
is coming on … and is there anything I can do
to head it off?"
"Do children with Aspergers need special education
"How can I help an Aspergers child overcome
social obstacles in the classroom?"
"When and how do I explain Aspergers to my loved
"What can I do to handle the stress of being
"Will my loved one ever be able to hold down
"Is there anything I can do now to help my loved
one gain some independence?"
I know how much pain can result
from not having answers or solutions … and how
much damage Asperger's Syndrome can do to a family
that's never had the right information before.
With the information I learned,
I would be able to help other families overcome,
and even prevent, the tremendous obstacles my son
has had to conquer.
How My Pain Will Be Your Gain
Even after those months of research
were over, I kept in touch with support groups
and kept talking to people who had Asperger's Syndrome.
When they heard that I had done all of this research
and that I was helping my son, they started asking
for my help, too. So I did. Some of them even
suggested that I write a book because they knew,
like I did, that there simply wasn't enough good
information out there.
One of my friends finally said,
"Craig, don't you think it's your duty to share
what you know with other people so they don't have
to suffer like you did?"
That made me think. The truth is
I would have done ANYTHING when I was first dealing
with my son's sadness and issues to get all of the
information I have now. If I could have had
everything in some type of report or book, then
things would have been so much easier for me, my
wife ... even my son.

Understanding and dealing
with your loved one's challenging behavior.
Challenging behavior is far easier to deal with
when your loved one recognizes that things are
not right ... and it's not much fun being upset
and having no friends. But Aspies don't realize
that their behavior causes the challenges in
their relationships and can alienate others.
This makes it difficult to get their cooperation
in changing. Plus they tend to be much more
argumentative, irrational, impulsive and oblivious
to the risks and consequences of their actions.
Getting your loved one
an effective treatment plan that leads to success
in life. There are dozens of reasons why
people with Asperger's resist treatment … ranging
from the fact that they often feel others are

personal problems in their life. And many
simply find that they don't know what to do
that will work.

in and out of the house. What could be better
than the holiday season?
A whole lot, it turns out,
for those with Asperger's Syndrome. While we

problems during the holidays that are hard for you
and others to understand. What can you do to
help minimize these problems? In this guide, I will

– "How to be Your Aspergers Child's Best Advocate"
What does it mean to be an
advocate for your son or daughter with Asperger's?
Well, simply put, it means SOMEONE has to help
your loved one with all the things they need,
and all the services they are going to need to assist
them with their unique issues. That someone has
got to be you. There is no one else that can do
it for you.
Your child with Asperger's
is going to need a lot of different things than
your other children, if you have them. He will probably
need things like speech therapy, occupational therapy,
and social skills therapy. He is most likely going
to need special education services from the school
district. There will be the problem of how to
get these services funded. It's a lot to handle
at once, and unfortunately, in most cases, there
won't be anyone handing you these services on a
golden platter. You are going to have to fight
for them. You are going to have to become your son
or daughter's best advocate, by figuring out what
kind of services your child needs, and how to best
get them. Our special report, "How to be
Your Aspergers Child's Best Advocate" is a roadmap

Spend less than 11
cents a day … and get access to this wealth of information.
I'm willing to guess that it'll
take you at least several more doctor's visits or therapy
appointments to extract even a fraction of the information
in The Aspergers Supporter's Course. If you make
$20 an hour at your job, you only have to save yourself
2 hours of time (a snap to do when you look at the time
you waste driving to and from appointments, never mind waiting
around for the doctor to actually get to you) to make your
investment worth every penny.
Wouldn't you rather spend your
free time with your loved one rather than desperately searching
the Internet for information about Asperger's Syndrome?
Wouldn't you rather spend a few hours learning what's worked
for other families and people rather than dragging your
loved one (and taking off of work yet again) from appointment
to appointment in a fruitless search for answers?
Of course you would. That's why it
makes perfect sense to order your copy today.
You Have 3 Choices
… Which Path Will You Lead Your Family Down?
Well, it's decision time. You have
three choices now. And the one you choose will affect
you – and your loved one – for the rest of your lives.
You don't do anything. You can keep pretending that
you have a handle on your loved one's Asperger's Syndrome
or that everything will work itself out. You can just turn
a blind eye to the horrible possibilities of depression,
anger, lost friends, loneliness, and problems at work that
could await your loved one in the future.
Trust me, I've spoken to enough people
who have Asperger's Syndrome to know that these are often
the results when the disorder isn't dealt with properly.
You can decide to search for this information on your own.
You can do the research, spend a ton of money, and devote
years to trial and error testing before possibly finding
a way to conquer your loved one's Asperger's Syndrome. Keep
in mind that the strategies that are included in this
course have taken years and costs thousands of dollars to
In the meantime, your loved one's
friendships, happiness, social skills, education, career,
and well-being will suffer. And your life will continue
to be disrupted and dictated by the whims of this treatable
Remember, the real key to your loved
one's success is getting the RIGHT information and taking
massive and immediate action on what you learn.
As I look back with my experience,
If I only had more information…

The Best News is…you can have
all the information you need to make it through the
maze of supporting a child with Asperger's Syndrome, WITHOUT
having to go through what I went through, because
you will have the one thing I did not have and had to get
on my own—ANSWERS!!!
That's why it makes the most logical
sense to go with …
You can invest in The
Asperger's Syndrome Survival Guide and immediately
discover how to start effectively helping your loved one
reclaim his or her life. You'll be able to take a "shortcut"
past all of the time, energy, effort, money, and heartbreak
so your loved one and the rest of your family can be happy
again without the threat of another episode looming over
The Longer You Wait
… the Harder and Less Likely It Will Be to Lead a "Normal"
You may not have realized this but
… Asperger's Syndrome is treatable if you know what works.
But the sooner your loved one starts learning coping strategies,
the easier it will be. Don't let your loved one loose
their self esteem, fail in school, get a reputation as aggressive
and hurtful. Don't allow your loved one to be
bullied and fail in their relationships.
The bad news is
that … the longer you wait to intervene,
the worse the problems are going to get.
That's why it's so crucial that you
take this step now so that you can help your loved one bypass
the problems that plague so many people who have Asperger's
Look at my family. My wife and I dealt
with Asperger's Syndrome for years, but if we had found
the information I've included in The Asperger's Syndrome
Survival Guide, we could have saved our son and
us from years of grief, mountains of anxiety, and dozens
of damaged relationships.
But guess what . . . Aspergers doesn't
go away. And your loved one won't get better on their own.
The problems and episodes will just keep getting worse and
Eventually, your entire family will
be dragged down, too.
There is no cure
for Asperger's Syndrome.
The only way your
loved one will achieve a normal life is by learning
to cope with the disorder.
Now YOU have the power to help your
loved one live a normal, happy, successful life as a
productive member of society … with the information,
tips and techniques contained in The Asperger's Syndrome
With the information you'll find in
this course, you will be able to turn your loved one's
life around. You'll be able to ensure that your loved
one receives the best medical treatment possible,
is able to nip any future episodes in the bud, stay out
of financial trouble, and hold down a steady job.
Aren't you finally
ready to reclaim your own life … by helping your loved one
conquer Asperger's Syndrome? Or would you rather waste the
next ten, twenty or thirty+ years being bossed around by
this nasty condition?
Ask anyone who has Asperger's Syndrome
or who has been supporting someone with the disorder for
years, and they'll tell you … that they would pay ANY amount
of money to turn back the clock and to make the types of
changes you'll discover in this course. They know that this
information would have made theirs and their loved ones'
lives better sooner.
This is your chance to save your
