Asperger Syndrome: Meeting the Challenges with Hope
About: Asperger Syndrome.
Someone you love has been diagnosed with the neurological disorder Asperger Syndrome. You are already experiencing the social struggles, communication difficulties, and other challenges, but you are also looking for hope. Does the Bible speak to this struggle?
Michael R. Emlet, combining his experience as a physician and a biblical counselor, explains Asperger Syndrome and highlights the unique place each person, including those with AS, have in God's family. He gives biblical, practical advice on how to deal with the spiritual challenges of AS and encourages with the truth that each person has inherent dignity and worth.
