There is some great literature and information out there written about and by children & adults with Asperger's syndrome.  It will definitely give you some perspective and hope when thinking of your child with AS all grown up.  A good place to start is with Tony Atwood's work for information about Aspergers.  A good book written by a middle schooler with Aspergers is called, "Freaks, Geeks & Asperger's syndrome".  It is important to remember that Aspergers is part of the autism spectrum disorder and affects individuals differently with respect to severity.



Good Luck!

No they will alway have AS. But working with them and you learning all you can to help them they are able to adapt better.

i have 2 boys with aspergers,i believe that they do get a little better as they grow as they learn as they go so in a sense yes , but aspergers would still be there .my son has changed so much that a school principal congratulated me on how far he has come , but its not just me that needs a pat on the back its also him , so with the right attitude and alot of love they can go very very far , there are no limits .
good luck
