Being a teen or tween isn't easy for anyone but it can be especially tough for children  on the autism spectrum with Asperger syndrome. Listen in today to a friendly, thought-provoking conversation between Award Winning Author, Aspie, Advocate and Mom, Jennifer Cook O'Toole and Karen  Krejcha at Autism Empowerment Radio.

We'll be talking about confusing Social Rules for life and in particular, when the "Obvious" isn't so obvious after all.

Jennifer Cook O'Toole, a very popular repeat guest at Autism Empowerment Radio is the author of "The Asperkid's SECRET Book of Social Rules, The Handbook of Not-So-Obvious Social Guidelines for Tweens and Teens with Asperger Syndrome"

Her book includes 138 Need-to-know Rules in Bullet Points for you to peruse and go back to for reminders whenever you want and 31 mini-chapters about those Need-To-Knows.

We'll be asking Jennifer about some of those Need-To-Knows especially in the areas of friendships, understanding our emotions, social niceties and self-worth.

O'Toole speaks domestically and internationally, keynoting in October for the UK's National Autistic Society and Ireland's SHINE Charity. She is also the public voice for Autism Brainstorm, a recurring columnist for Autism Asperger's Digest and the founder of Asperkids, LLC, a multi-media social education company.

The Asperkid's SECRET Book of Social Rules was published in 2012 through Jessica Kingsley Publishers and is now available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online venues.
