520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. "Parenting a child with Asperger syndrome is never easy, and adding ADHD to the psychological mix makes life even more difficult. In this searingly honest account of bringing up her son, Luke, Jan Greenman challenges common perceptions of "life with labels", and recalls her family's 18-year journey to the edge and back." - BOOK JACKET
520 1# - SUMMARY, ETC.
Review Life at the edge is a family story. There are the facts, when Luke was born, how the family tensions caused Paul and Jan to become isolated from each other and how sister Abbi coped with a sometime violent brother; then there are the tips that Jan, Luke and Abbi share with their readers; finally there is the development in Luke’s life as he goes from baby then on to school boy and finally to young adult.<br/>This is a very honest and open account written by a mother whose passionate feelings for her family will not allow her to give in to her personal distress and physical tiredness. She tells of the difficulties in convincing the local educational authority of the need for Luke to have support for his schooling; her problems in coming to understand Luke’s behavioral differences; the joy and pride in Luke’s development.
