Asperger's Syndrome in Young Children: A Developmental Guide for Parents and Professionals

By Laurie Leventhal-Belfer; Cassandra Coe | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The book is dedicated to the parents in the Friends' Program, a play-centered therapy group for young children with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) and their families, which we directed at the Palo Alto Children's Health Council. The parents have given us the opportunity to learn from them and learn what it means to have a child with AS. They have shared with us the dreams they have for their children, the barriers they have sometimes faced in seeking help, and the pleasures and rewards they have experienced with their children. Each and every parent's journey has informed us and educated us on how to be better clinicians working with young children with Asperger's Syndrome. We are also indebted to the children who have shown us that they, like all other children, love to play, have strong feelings, treasure having others interested in their ideas, and yearn for friends. What they have taught us informs and shapes the core of this work and reminds us how unique and individual children are.

We would also like to thank our husbands, without whose endless support, editing, childcare, and encouragement this book would never have been written. And our thanks to our children for providing us with the front row tickets to observe and engage in hours of play at the playground, birthday parties, play dates, and at their schools. And to Isaac, the oldest, we would like to express our thanks for his patient assistance on the computer, a tool he seems able to use as easily as we use the pen.
