As diagnoses of Asperger’s Syndrome in adults increase, Dr. Kenneth Roberson answers questions for all to understand
With the launch of his new book, a leading psychologist is on a mission to help those with little knowledge of Asperger’s Syndrome better understand the complex world of this syndrome in adults. Drawing on 25 years of experience evaluating and treating adults, Dr. Kenneth Roberson, author of Adult Asperger's Syndrome: The Essential Guide, answers the many questions he is faced with on a daily basis to help sufferers and their loved ones be more aware of Asperger’s Syndrome and its impact on adults.
Currently around 3.5 million people in the United States are living with Asperger’s or a similar condition, and figures from the Autism Society show this is growing at a rate of 6-15% every year. While being diagnosed with Asperger’s as an adult can provide reasons for common challenges which may have been previously misunderstood, it can also open up a new, confusing world with a huge number of unanswered questions and uncertainty.
Ongoing research has led to a dramatic increase in the availability of information about Asperger’s Syndrome in adults. Growing support groups, blogs and online communities have created an exciting opportunity for awareness and help for those concerned about the condition and how it is affecting their lives.
While awareness is now growing, Dr. Roberson reports many are still in the dark when they are diagnosed. Typical questions he encounters include:
- What causes Asperger’s?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of a diagnosis?
- Can I be happy and enjoy life if I have Asperger’s?
- If I have Asperger’s or know someone who does, where can I go for help?
Dr. Roberson believes that questions like these matter. He set out to address them in his book, sharing years of experience in the field to help anyone affected with Asperger’s find the solutions they need to make living with this condition more manageable.
“We live in a time where the mystery that surrounds Asperger’s Syndrome in adults is being shed. As a greater amount of people are diagnosed in the US, further learning resources are published and this is a positive,” commented author, Dr. Roberson “However, these resources are predominantly
aimed at those who are professionals in the industry or already have an understanding of the topic. These technical documents do provide information, but not the clear answers for the people who need them most. That is why I wrote this book, to provide insight and understanding to the non-professional person concerned with facing the challenges that arise with Asperger’s Syndrome.”
Dr. Roberson uses his authority on the subject to specifically explore Asperger’s in adults, which many books have overlooked.
The specific topic and clear descriptions of complex explanations makes the book a vital tool for any person wanting, or needing, to clarify any confusion surrounding Asperger’s.
