Chasing Trains S.LEA

Chasing Trains is written by a mother whose child was diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder known as Asperger's Syndrome nearly two decades ago. This was a time when there was little information available to parents about this condition and even less on how to face the challenges associated with it.

Dealing with meltdowns, lack of communication, and her son’s overwhelming preoccupation with trains, she developed an unwavering commitment to help her son to not just survive, but thrive, in a world where conformity means so much.

Through trial and error, and sometimes simply by accident, she discovered several techniques and strategies which helped their day to day life become less stressful and more rewarding.

In this book she shares her experience and hopes that parents can benefit from her ‘suggestions’.

FOR PARENTS

For parents who have recently been confronted with the challenges of Asperger’s Syndrome, Chasing Trains provides a precious glimpse into what may be encountered in the very early years of your child’s life, that is from infancy to the pre–teens. The second book in this series Waiting for Trains addresses the pre–teen and early teen years.

These books are written in “guidebook” format. You can investigate areas of interest, things you may be struggling with. Other topics may just give you a chance to enjoy a story that you can relate to as the parent of an Asperger’s kid. Each chapter is centered on a single set of problems and problem solving. Some chapters may or may not apply to you. Pick and choose what interests you, or read it from cover to cover. You may discover something new that will prove helpful to you and your child or you can simply enjoy reading these stories about things you’ve already discovered on your own.

FOR EDUCATORS, PROFESSIONALS, RESEARCHERS & CLINICIANS

When the lights go out and the office is closed, when school is over and the classroom door is locked for the day, these books may provide you with further insight into what Asperger’s children and their families face on a day to day basis, thus enhancing your capability to support them on their journey.

Rather than seeing just a “snapshot” of their life, these books give you a broader look into their world. Combined with the knowledge, expertise, and commitment that you already possess, we are confident that the “broader look” that these books provide will be invaluable, as you seek to find ways to assist this growing population.

“I laughed, I cried and sometimes just ‘giggled’ at the descriptions of what comes up in the lives of a parent and a child living with Asperger’s. The author’s unique way of describing how to maneuver through a challenge with her child, herself, and the outside world is heartwarming.”
