Kenneth Hall was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of eight. His early school years had been difficult, as although he is bright and articulate, his behaviour could be challenging and easily misread. After his diagnosis, the Local Education Board intervened and provided him with a laptop computer, to encourage him to express himself. This book is the result.
Kenneth Hall was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of eight. He is in a unique position to describe some of the inner experiences and perceptions of autism in childhood. He has a warm and positive attitude to Asperger Syndrome which other children will find inspiring. Insights, struggles and joys are recounted vividly in a frank and humorous way. His book is for anyone interested in understanding more about autism, including parents, siblings, teachers and professionals.
