I can strongly recommend his books also.  They explain things in a logical way.  When you read them, you will begin to see patterns in your own thinking and it helps sort of define what is going on.  Plus I can adapt some of what he says to explain things to others in a way they can understand.  He is very sympathetic to ASD folks in his view, seeing strengths along with weaknesses.



his book is amazing but like most adults here i find it to much towards children :(

but i got a cbt book for aspergers off amazon that seems pretty good

What is the title?  CBT has helped me out some with social anxiety and some of my negativism, so I would read another one if it got a recommendation.

I just watch all seven videos and all I can say is:  OMG This guy is spot on!

 

I can't comment on the parts about the females aspies as I'm a guy and I don't know many aspie girls.  But the few I've known I can tell, it's different.  So he's on the right track.

I really like his explanations and examples.  He is so clear and easy to understand that I think even neurotipicals can get the point (and yeah, I think neuroptipicals are pretty dumb).

He makes sense of so much. I especially liked his insights to how women/girls on the spectrum adapt, and the specific challenges we can face. I see much of this in my life.

Thanks for posting these. :) Very helpful.

First observation. Dr Atwood and Baron Cohen rank very highly in autism spectrum psychology. Tony Atwood's knowledge comes from academic study and time spent with patients. It interests me only one specialist who isn't neurotypical is Paul Cooijman. In most cases you're looking at an outside analytical appraisal of a condition. I find it easier the other way round. Looking at it from the inside. The main proponent of that method was Jiddu Krishnamurti who to me makes a lot of sense. Apart from that Asperger made the point his own autistic patients had highly refined self analytical skills. They were too young to articulate exactly what their symptoms were so their behaviour was interpreted. Having said that if you do have autism and research psychology there's a danger of personal involvement in the subject. It's very close to home.
