I enjoy and appreciate the information, anything to help my son and my own understanding of what
life is like for Nicholas. It also helps me educate my son's teacher and EA which
this process is ongoing and at times very frustrating.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! I have
been looking for this! My grandson is nineteen, and I am still learning everyday about
Aspergers Syndrome, and anything that can help me help him is so appreciated.

My 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

the width and depth of the information you have provided. Thank you most sincerely for
what you have done.

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
"Thank you so much for your information about Asperger's Syndrome. I went to a therapist to try and learn how to be better in the relationship with my husband. My therapist

almost 70 years old. Some peace at last. I thank you very much for your help. Pat Davies, Bauple, Queensland, Australia

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.
"Hi, Mr. Craig Kendall
Thanks for the Newsletter, it has been a great help for me to understand Aspergers Syndrome.
I 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!
Peggy Stockdill, Daniel (age 13), Minneapolis, MN
"I feel like I can't thank you enough. As you know, we love
our children so very much and we don't want them to just "fit in" but to live the life they
were put on this Earth to live. I cannot say enough wonderful things about these e-mails.
Getting an e-mail and or video (even better because sometimes I am too tired to read anything)
from someone saying exactly what I feel and think is amazing!!!" Noreen Lewis
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. (I felt I was being bullied by the teachers at my sons school - who
definitely didn't understand ASD) So thank you very much for your well written book that basically offered a lifeline in
a very confusing time.

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.
Thank you very much,

"Dear Craig I have a 7 year old granddaughter who has just been diagnosed with Aspergers. I have
a greater insight into the condition now and under-
stand her so much better. I always wondered why at this time of the year she never wanted
to go to the shopping malls to see the Christmas lights and Father Christmas etc. like most
children. And lots an lots of other things. She is very bright and has an advanced vocabulary
and an excellent memory. Your articles have enlightened me and I look forward to
them. Thanks once again"
Maria Drummond-Hay, Cape Town, South Africa
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. Thanks for your straightforward, easy
reading manual for parents and children with Asperger's.
"Your newsletter has been a great help to me. I have a little
4 y.o. boy in my Sunday School class and it has been quite a challenge to know how to give
a lesson in a way that would benefit him. I feel now that I can 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. God bless you for the
good work that you are doing. Cheers"

Your newsletter helps me learn more about the syndrome. It
gives me bite-sized pieces of information and it's topical format makes it easy for me to
share with others. I share it with my husband and my mom mostly. And because
the information is bite-sized, it is easier for me to remember and I use that in day-to-day
conversation with close friends who have questions. Sincere thanks for your newsletter.

Claudia Nazario, Monroe, NY
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!
Michelle Anderson, Kenosha, WI
I am Ben's grandmother and see him every single day. He is a joy. What your info does is help us
to understand the melt downs that quite frankly we have always put down to the meds that
he takes. We have proved your theory of a strict regime for Ben. Each letter adds
to our knowledge. Keep it up dear friend. We learn from you every day and will I am sure
continue to learn. God Bless you.
Your newsletters have been extremely helpful to me. They are easy to read, and cover important topics

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… I really loved the video (sent with the newsletter) of the boy
talking about lack of facial expression and misreading facial expression.

Thank you so much for your quality work! I found your books to be helpful. Generally,
the info you provide is more relevant and in-depth than a similar one that is out there
(though I’d rather not mention names since any help we get divulging Asperger’s information
to parents is greatly appreciated!).
Thank you again kindly,
Theresa Meuse, Bedford, MA
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,
Just wanted you to know that your newsletters are a blessing and
a wealth of valuable information.

"I find your newsletter incredibly helpful in teaching me
how to deal with my son. In fact it has been
more useful than any MD."
Steven Randel, Highland Park, MI
The number of people currently reading this newsletter:
* Your name and email
address will not be sold, shared or disclosed to anyone. *
I know you want your loved one to achieve those dreams.
But right now, they seem out of reach, don't they?
Believe me, I know. Because two years
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 would help.
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, isn't it?).
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 in school.
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 Scared
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 got worse.
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
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 From Home
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
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
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 to help.
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
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 A Therapist
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
Thankfully, I was wrong. Everyone in the library was very helpful.
That wasn't the problem.
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 support groups.
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
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:
Alex before I did my research
No real friends
Unable to handle change
Can't play with friends
Horrible migraine headaches
Thought everyone hated him
Lack of self esteem
Alex today after a lot of research
Several close personal friends
Handles changing situations well
Plays well with friends with no problems
Migraines have gone away
Understands that people love him
Proud of his accomplishments
Learned organization skills
The difference 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?
They were struggling to answer
"What is Asperger's Syndrome
exactly … and did I do something that caused this?"
"Why has it been so hard
to get an accurate diagnosis?"
"How is the initial diagnosis
made ... and how early can it be detected?"
"How do I find a good doctor
"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 for Aspergers?"
"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 courses?"
"How can I help an Aspergers
child overcome social obstacles in the classroom?"
"When and how do I explain
Aspergers to my loved one?"
"What can I do to handle
the stress of being a supporter?"
"Will my loved one ever
be able to hold down a job?"
"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
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.
The Asperger's Syndrome Survival
Guide: What You and Your Family Need Know
That's why I put together The Asperger's Syndrome
Survival Guide: What You and Your Family Need Know, which is filled with all of
the tips, tricks, and secrets that you can use to support loved ones who are battling Asperger's
Once I got started, I realized that the same information
may not be right for everyone. And because I want to help as many people as possible, I
created a separate report detailing the results of my surveys of parents and professionals.
Let's talk about the book and the report and how they
can help you.
The Book - The Asperger's Syndrome Survival Guide:
What You and Your Family Need Know
The Asperger's Syndrome Survival Guide
comes with a number of items that will help you to better help your loved one and your family
cope with Asperger's Syndrome.
This extensive resource is bursting with the tips,
smart strategies and answers you've been seeking … including ways to effectively deal
with two of the most frustrating – and chronic – challenges you face as an Aspergers supporter:
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

FREE Bonus #3 – "How to
be Your Aspergers Child's Best Advocate" (Special Report)
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 to help you navigate the maze. You will learn
the most common services kids with Asperger's need, how to find them, tips to pay for them,
and ways to get what you want from your school district. Know the ten essentials for preparing
for your child's IEP meeting.

the Transition to Adulthood" (Special Report)
This might be a topic that worries you quite a bit, and frankly,
from conversations I have had with young Aspergers adults, it is sometimes a topic that
worries them quite a bit, too. There are a lot of obstacles in place for someone with
Asperger's to succeed in the world. But it can be done. There are some hints and shortcuts,
ways to get around the problems that can arise in adulthood. In this report, you
will learn about some of the most common obstacles for an adult with Asperger's, and ways
to get around them.
We will tell you about the ways to successfully transition from school
to the workplace. How to deal with isolation, loneliness and depression; the challenges
of dating and relationships, and workplace politics. In this guide I will address
many employment problem areas and what steps you need to take to resolve issues including
the interview, sensory overload in a busy office, and workplace accommodation.
And I will show you the best ... and worst careers for someone with Aspergers.

could be attributed to my Aspergers diagnosis, but the peer abuse
took away my ability to see myself as a person in relation to others."

Spend less than 11 cents a day … and get access to this wealth
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
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
Of course you would. That's why it makes perfect sense to order your copy
You Have 3 Choices … Which Path Will You Lead Your Family
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.
Choice #1: 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.
Choice #2: 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 research.
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 condition.
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, I've said:
If I only had more information… Yes, if I only had more information,
my family would have been spared so much of the anxiety I described to you. Our journey would have
been one of joy and discovery, instead of pain and suffering. Needless pain and suffering many times.
The Good News is…I have learned from my mistakes and hundreds of other
The Better News is…You can learn all of this in the comfort of your
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
That's why it makes the most logical sense to go with …
Choice #3: 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
The Longer You Wait … the Harder and Less Likely It Will Be
to Lead a "Normal" life
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 Syndrome.
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
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 worse.
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 Survival Guide.
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 loved one and your family from the ravages
of Asperger's Syndrome. All you have to do is make the right decision today, order your copy
of The Aspergers Supporter's Course, and review it risk-free for the next 60 days.
The information in my book plus the three bonus reports cannot be found in
any other book, course, manual, etc. You won't find it at the library. Your family doctor won't
be able to give it to you. How do I know? Because I tried to find it myself. It's not there! You
owe it to your loved one, your family … and YOURSELF … to take action and get this material.
