This book uncovers the puzzling behaviour by children and youths with Asperger Syndrome (AS) that have a sensory base and, therefore, are often difficult to pinpoint and interpret. Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book covers the impact of the sensory system on behaviour, reviews formal and informal assessment tools and offers an invaluable set of practical interventions that can be used by parents and educators alike to help promote success for children and youths with AS. The "sensory gang"- a set of clever icons used throughout the book- helps the reader navigate between the senses.
