In Quirky, Yes--Hopeless, No , Dr. Cynthia La Brie Norall and Beth Brust present short lessons, structured around specific topics from A-Z that address the social challenges faced by Asperger's children and teens. Since everyday "people skills" do not come naturally to children with Asperger's, they need training in such simple activities as:

* How to greet others and make eye contact

*How to let go and move on to new tasks

* How to cooperate and ask for help

*How to pay compliments

*How to discern someone's true intentions

* How to handle teasing and bullying

* How not to be rude.

Based on Dr. Norall's twenty years of experience diagnosing and treating thousands with Asperger's, this book will share her insights gained from helping so many friendless Asperger's children become more approachable, less stuck, and finally able to make, and keep, a friend or two.
