Growing up with a parent on the autistic spectrum can be difficult, and children may often feel confused and worried by the fact that their parent is so different to others. This positive book takes an honest look at how Asperger's Syndrome can affect a family when a parent is on the spectrum, and reassures young people that it's ok to have a mum or dad who is different. Following the story of Sophie and Daniel whose dad, Mark, has Asperger Syndrome, the book reveals the family's journey from initial diagnosis to gradual acceptance of the fact that there is 'something different about Dad'. Sophie and Daniel learn the reasons behind their dad's problems with communication, his social and emotional difficulties, and the issues caused by his inflexibility of thought, sensory and motor skills, and anxiety. They also come to recognise his positive attributes, including his loyalty, punctuality, ability to help with homework for hours on end - even his detailed knowledge of car engines that has saved day trips and outings from breakdown disaster! The warm, funny story emphasises how love within a family can overcome all difficulties, looking at sensitive issues in a lighthearted yet reassuring manner. This heartwarming and realistic story is a must for all families with an AS parent.
