Coaching People with Asperger's Syndrome by Bill Goodyear

Book Description

This book arises from a lifetime's practical experience of work with people with Asperger's syndrome and autism. People with Asperger's syndrome easily drop through the net and fall into the wrong services - sometimes staying at home, depending on their families, sometimes falling into criminal justice or mental health services. Others, of course, fall into employment. Those in between, and there are many, benefit from the coaching approach developed by Bill Goodyear, which is described in this book.The book is crammed with practical tips, real life stories and new thinking. So often research results arrive from highly specialised work - this book attempts to synthesise a range of new learning from a number of fields and present a hopeful view of the condition - there are many entry points to use to create the possibility of forward motion and development.Touching lightly on some specific and recurring problems, the book unpicks our current understanding of the condition and describes in detail how to use coaching to empower and enable rather than to control and direct. Teachers, parents and other professionals working with this population will find the book useful and interesting (and amusing!), as will people with Asperger's and those people who come into contact with the undiagnosed or unnoticed "Aspies" - health, education and social service professionals especially, but also coaches, therapists and complementary health practitioners.

Author Biography - Bill Goodyear

Bill Goodyear has spent a lifetime amongst people with autism, first as a teacher in one of the first schools founded by the National Autistic Society, then in a local voluntary society to his own school, offering education to a group of children who were excluded from any education at the time, and in his Asperger Coaching practice which he has been operating for nearly 20 years. In that time he has met hundreds of families living with autism and Asperger's syndrome and attended endless conferences exploring new research. He is father of three exciting and grown up children, a keen photographer and an unstoppable guitar player, and while he is a good cook, he is lousy at gardening. Having lived in Folkestone, Ealing, Andover, Adlestrop, Peterborough and Rotherham, he currently lives in London and travels extensively, talking about Asperger's syndrome, autism and life, and is developing his coaching into the neuro typical world, especially focussing on supporting people in making their own creative projects happen. He mainly uses his lifetime's experience of autism spectrum disorders to support families living with Asperger's, and within that he is finding ways to help mainstream organisations include people with Asperger and to help those with Asperger's to be included.
