Asperger Syndrome and Difficult Moments:Practical Solutions for Tantrums, Rage, and Meltdowns Brenda Smith, Ph. D. Myles, Jack Southwick
This book analyzes the rude and critical natures of Aspie and OCPD husbands. It is intended to be a support guide for the nonspectrum and neurotypical partners who marry these men. The book is not intended to be listened to by a person with Asperger´s syndrome or OCPD, as it puts names and labels to the abrasive and abusive behaviors that are typical with the brain wiring and genetics at the root of the spectrum disorders. Many people walk into marriage counseling with the same goal. They are living with people who have critical, negative, and grumpy natures. They feel that they are enslaved by these negative people in their lives. One partner´s personal growth is drastically hindered by the other partner´s sharp tongue, rude comments, and critical nature. If you aren´t married to one of these types, you have surely met them on the street or at work. They are the people with road rage who cannot control their outbursts. Shaking their fists angrily out the window, they are shouting obscenities as they drive by you. You might even wonder if they have Tourette´s syndrome. They are the rude people on the elevator who let the door slam in your face. They are the critical people in the restaurant who are too stingy to leave decent tips. These people are rigid and inflexible at work. They blatantly refuse to delegate work to others. They are the ones who are vying for promotions without ever doing enough to warrant getting them. They can´t participate in the small talk around the office water cooler, but they will complain to anyone who listens about how they were passed up in favor of coworkers. They complain loudly about how their bosses and their teammates must not like them. Believe it or not, some women are attracted to these abrasive types. You might be one of them. The strong and masculine person you can´t live without is sometimes your worst enemy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lori L. Parker.

When a devastating diagnosis tears author Donnie Kanter Winokur´s family apart, a service dog may be their best hope to stay together. Donnie Kanter Winokur and her husband, Harvey, never could have imagined the heart-wrenching struggle that becomes their new reality after they decide to adopt two infants from Russia. As Iyal and Morasha grow, it becomes clear that Iyal´s development is drastically lagging behind his sister´s. By age four, he has a devastating diagnosis: fetal alcohol syndrome. But naming their battle provides little relief as Iyal and his family try to cope with the lifelong impact of his invisible disability. As the Winokurs´ marriage is unraveling, Donnie and Harvey hang on to the last shreds of their own promise. Desperate to alleviate her son´s constant rages and their crushing toll on the family, Donnie comes up with an innovative, untested, four-pawed solution: a golden retriever service dog named Chancer. Chancer is specially trained to give Iyal a unique love he desperately needs. But in this true-life tale infused with moments of despair, tenderness, and humor, Chancer turns out to be what the entire family has needed to stay - and grow - together. 1. Language: English.

The summer before entering sixth grade, Sammy, a bright and charming boy who lived on the coast of Maine, suddenly began to exhibit disturbing behavior. He walked and ate with his eyes shut, refused to bathe, burst into fits of rage, slithered against walls, and used his limbs instead of his hands to touch light switches, doorknobs, and faucets. Sammy´s mother, Beth, already coping with the overwhelming responsibility of raising three sons alone, watched helplessly as her middle child descended into madness. Sammy was soon diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and later with Tourette syndrome. Unwilling to accept the doctors´ prognoses for lifelong mental illness and repeated hospitalizations, Beth fought to uncover what was causing this decline. Racing against time as Sammy slipped further from reality, Beth´s quest took her to the center of the medical community´s raging debate about whether mental illness can be caused by infection. With the battle lines firmly drawn, Beth searched until she found two cutting-edge doctors who answered that question with a definitive yes. Together, they cured Sammy. Five years later, he remains symptom free. Driven by her desire to help others, Beth Maloney has infused every page of this triumphant journey with heart and passion. An important story, Saving Sammy is part manifesto, part medical mystery, but is at its heart the empowering and inspiring story of a mother´s determination to save her son, take on the medical establishment - and win. 1.

This audiobook seeks to explain the potential links between OCPD and Autism spectrum disorder, Asperger´s syndrome, and schizophrenia. It touches base on Cohen´s extreme male brain theory and what it means for people with OCPD. It correlates the traits of the former disorder with that of the latter disorders. People with OCPD often struggle in a marriage. There are many reasons why this is true. Their critical nature often tends to wear on their partners. They become obsessive and compulsive about the neatness of the home, often complaining to their spouse and children if things are out of place. They are overly self-conscientious when they go out in public. They are often on autopilot, so they are generally forgetful. Others become deeply annoyed with OCPD people who rarely seem to pay attention or listen to them. People with OCPD often have meltdowns if the rules or routine is changed. If the family intends to go to a movie and someone suggests stopping for dinner at the last minute, this can send them into a fit of rage. Many OCPD people are task-oriented and object-oriented. They must have symmetry in a room, or the visual presentation of the room will throw their mind into disarray. They feel like their brains are somewhat disorganized, and they may compensate for it by obsessively organizing everything else in their environment. It is said that nearly 80 percent of people with ADHD and autism spectrum disorder experience a failed marriage, if they ever marry at all. Many people with Asperger´s syndrome are averse to marriage and relationships. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Blake.

A single mom struggles to solve the puzzle of a son with Asperger´s syndrome in this touching, winsome comic melodrama. Rory Falcon is a bundle of exasperating eccentricities-perpetual pacing, mile-a-minute talkativeness, an obsession with lawn mowers and antique gas cans, an incorrigible refusal to follow instructions or tolerate constraints-combined with a good heart that only his adoptive mother Archer can see. But as he pushes 16-years-old, his quirks escalate to drinking, joyriding and muscular rages that can end with him blackening his mom´s eye. Archer, a frantically multitasking lawyer who´s up for a judgeship, blames her mothering skills for Rory´s behavior because there´s no one else to blame - least of all her ex-husband Wayne, a whiny man-child still looking to break into a theater career. Then Rory and a high-school hellion named Trish hare off in a stolen car to find Rory´s birth mother, and Archer embarks on a journey to recover her son and unearth buried family secrets that stretch all the way back to the Salem Witch Trials. In this entertaining dysfunction romp, the authors cut the pathos with tart humor and vivid characterizations. Hurricane Rory is an indelible portrait of a high-functioning autistic kid who´s both off-putting and magnetic; veering between wild, foul-mouthed tantrums, plangent sweetness and locked-down obliviousness, he´s as much a mystery to himself as to everyone else. Archer is another vibrant tangle of contradictions; determined to play the stalwart authority figure, she feels like a wreck and a failure-a tiger mom who is nonetheless in serious danger of collapsing in vodka-soaked sniffles into the arms of a comforting teenager. As she walks a fraying maternal tightrope-with plenty of pratfalls-Lewis and Faircloth give readers a hilarious and moving study of familial love that´s all the stronger for its conflicts and misgivings. 1.
