Synopsis: The Author of Diagnosing Jefferson introduces twelve more high-achieving role models who have made significant contributions to our world. Role models include: Einstein; Mozart; Darwin; Jefferson; Welles; Levent; Robeson; Curie; Mendel; Mozart; Bartok; Sagan; Gould; and Hartford. All exhibited traits common to people with Asperger's Syndrome. Today's young people and adults with AS can also make a difference if they are given support, opportunities, and the freedom to explore their abilities. Many accomplished people have been loners, self-taught, obsessed by an idea, and known for their lack of social skills. How many of them would be diagnosed with Asperger's today? Norm Ledgin makes convincing arguments for an Asperger's role in each of their extraordinary lives. Helpful chapters include: A Challenge for Parents, Teachers, and Health-Care Professionals The Lonely Perspective of the Asperger’s Child Dealing with Fixations that Drive Us Nuts A Ride in the Time Machine of Logic Finding and Offering Relevant Role Models Surprising and Strange Parallels A New Look at the Concept of Genius Our Discomforts, Their Rights Choosing to be Gentle on Their Minds Parents as Role Models

About the Author:

Norm and his wife Marsha were professional partners as safety educators, and then business partners in weekly newspaper publishing for fifteen years. With this book, they have renewed their professional partnership, after a hiatus during which they dedicated themselves to full-time parenting. They have two daughters, Stephanie and Allison, and three sons, David, Alfred, and Nicholas.
