"This practical, problem-solving guide explains what AS is and why certain personality traits frequently occur, such as anxiety, fear of change and unusual sensitivities. Once behaviours and reactions are understood, many of the apparent problems become less troublesome, and difficulties can be avoided or easily resolved. Practical strategies to combat typical problems are offered, and common issues that occur specifically with individuals diagnosed later in life are addressed."--BOOK JACKET."
