There are countless books with information about children with Asperger Syndrome, but very few offer a personal look into the inner lives of these children. In this unique collection of children s essays, poems and discussions recounted by parents, readers have a rare opportunity to gain insight into the world of children with Asperger Syndrome. Instead of being talked about, children here have the opportunity to share their world their passions and fears, their awesome sense of wonder and quirky sense of humor, their distinguishing talents and much more.

Review:

More Than Little Professors, a compelling collection of stories, poems and artwork by children with Asperger s, runs a high risk of becoming the most dog-eared book on my bookshelf. It is certain to be devoured by my graduate students along with the many children and families we serve in the schools and community. I wish this book had existed when I first began supporting children on the autism spectrum to socialize and play with their typical peers and siblings in Integrated Play Groups. It is a privilege to peek into the worlds of these amazing young authors and artists, who share many insights that are both validating and inspirational for my life s work. There are lessons for us all that are certain to impact generations to come. --Pamela Wolfberg, Ph.D., San Francisco State University Autism Institute on Peer Relations and Play

The poetry, comments and stories within these pages provide information directly from the mouths of babes about how children with Asperger Syndrome feel about themselves, others and the world they so readily observe, and in the process clear up common misunderstandings. Poignant, at times painful and powerful, this book helps us to appreciate the child within these intriguing individuals, encouraging us to look deeper and learn from their wisdom. --Michelle Garcia Winner, SLP MA-CCC, specialist for persons with social cognitive learning challenges, San Jose, California

This wonderful volume conveys the experience of individuals with Asperger s disorder as they cope with the typical world. Through writings, poems, comments and artwork, the book provides important insight into the experiences and inner worlds of children with Asperger s. --Fred R. Volkmar, M.D. Director, Yale Child Study Center, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Psychology Yale University School of Medicine, Chief, Child Psychiatry Children's Hospital at Yale-New Haven
