If you don't own this book, beg, borrow, or go to your church and ask them to buy it for you. Then hand it around to every single person, young and old who cares about your child. It's a 10 minute read, and "tells it like it is".
Can I Tell You About Asperger Syndrome?: A Guide for Friends and Family by Jude Welton, Elizabeth Newson, and Jane Telford.
Hi Kristen: I read this post with interest because I think I have read the Asberger's book you are speaking about. (I have read so many different books on the topic that I am a little uncertain!) If you are still interested in reading about special needs, I wanted to recommend a book for you: THE OUT OF SYNC CHILD, Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder, by Carol Stock Kranowitz.
This book has given me tremendous help in dealing with my 6 year old son's problems. He is in the 'autism spectrum', not a classic case of autism (if there is such a thing) but he has characteristics of the sensory processing disorder & this book has been so helpful.
