Through solid expertise, experience, and drawing from a variety of case studies, Dr. Michael McManmon helps those who parent, mentor, work with, or teach young adults “on the autism spectrum” how to obtain skills for life, work, and independent living.
Using the strategies and the tried and true methodologies gleaned from twenty-eight years of helping young adults lead independent, successful, and fulfilling lives, Dr. McManmon takes the reader from the early days of accepting a diagnosis to learning the executive functioning skills so necessary for attending college, working, dating, and leading independent lives.
“Made for Good Purpose has a powerful set of tools based on Dr. Michael McManmon’s personal experiences and insights as a self-advocate of Asperger’s Syndrome. Dr. McManmon defines ‘The Donkey Rule’, which will be embraced by every reader, as he guides everyone on a path towards achieving their fullest potential.”
– Lawrence P. Kaplan, Ph.D., Chairman of US Autism & Asperger Association, and author of Diagnosis Autism: Now What?
