Here you can browse relevant and interesting links mostly about Asperger's. The secret to a learning disability is it's not about the learning disability. What's important are the side benefits from the activity that captures the individual's attention. I'll update this section as I see fit, and I'm almost always open to other ideas and suggestions.
This pamphlet published by the Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation talks to many parents and clergy about providing a sense of belonging to a community to an autistic youth. I'm fortunate to have found sanctuary at my synagogue growing up. A house of worship can easily do the same for other youths and families. It's a place for growth, and talking about everything under the stars, where your quirks don't feel like a burden or a problem.
I found this message board discussion a while back about autism through the eyes of those who are part of my club. No two cases are similar, and I'd add that what has a great effect on any of us is the people we have around us and the events that stick with us especially when little.
Rarely will I recommend learning social skills by reading. There's too many moving parts to accurately size up every situation in real time. But Alex Packer's How Rude, updated for the digital age, outlines many a faux pas and cringey moment in his book by being honest yet constructive. This is the best approach to life in general. Here's the original, which I read when I was 12.
On a similar topic, Words That Hurt, Words That Heal, by Joseph Telushkin, is appropriate for all ages, and also outlines all kinds of regretful situations by being honest yet constructive. It's kind of funny how so many people, regardless of Asperger's, have to be instructed on how to act and what not to do. As it's written by a rabbi, there are quite a few religious parables in this book, yet I'd recommend it to anyone no matter their faith.
Pay attention not just to Penn Jillette's words, but also how he expresses himself on this TV snippet. He is firm without being too intense. I tip my hat to him for sticking up for his friends and the greater Asperger's population whose body language can be easily misinterpreted.
I'm a huge fan of standup comedy. The side benefits to laughter when it's just one person having to come up with something and look within their own self carry over into many aspects of life. I call it a steroid for social interaction. You'll find it's easier to talk to others, especially when you don't want to. Here's a list of notable comedy specials to watch. I suggest supporting the ones you like the best by buying them. You never know how long they will stay free, and there is no such thing as a free lunch..
