Acknowledgements

The authors would like to acknowledge the support of the following groups during the preparation of this manuscript. Intel (Ireland) generously sponsored the early part of this work. We gratefully acknowledge the tremendous efforts made on our behalf by Evelyn Pender and Frank Turpin of Intel. Microsoft (Ireland) has given us software to keep our machines up to date. The Irish Autism Alliance and the North Eastern Autism Support Group contributed towards video production efforts as a precursor to this work. Ornaigh Malone of ASPIRE, the national Irish Asperger organization, provided contacts and assistance.

JH would like to thank the Department of Rural and Community Affairs, and the Higher Education Authority for providing grants to the authors to develop multimedia supports for AS students. The Minister for Education, Noel Dempsey, has provided much encouragement and good -will. We are immensely grateful for his support. Ann, Trisha and Aidan have assisted many students with social impairments through the Access Office in Maynooth College. The staff of the Child and Family Centre in the North Eastern Health Board commented on various sections of the manuscript. ML thanks them for their patience and the anonymous parents of several patients for their assistance. MF would like to thank his anonymous patients and postgraduate registrars for useful insights and bursts of humour. A special debt is owed to Gert Job who drew on his 25 years in sexuality education with learning disabled people to assist us with the sections on AS and relationship formation. In addition, the authors wish to acknowledge the comments of David Jordan on this work for a very special reason. David is currently completing his PhD in geology but in between his studies he has found time to establish a social skills club for students. On top of that David was diagnosed with AS several years ago. Vivienne Foley, Principal Speech and Language Therapist at the Beechpark Centre for Autism, provided feedback on interviews with AS individuals which was useful in the early planning stages of this project.

Finally, we acknowledge the many unfortunates within our families and among our colleagues who were pinned down to read and advise on sections of the manuscript. Any remaining impairments are entirely due to the authors’ inability to do without sleep.
