AspergerísóIf You Only Knew is an uplifting and enlightening glimpse into the lives of a mother and son who have both learned to cope and thrive with Aspergerís Syndrome (AS), arguably one of the most fascinating conditions in the history of mental health.

As a child, Sophia Summers always knew she was different and misunderstood. Hers was a lonely life of obsession and passion, fraught with anxieties, vulnerabilities, confusion, and heartbreak. It wasnít until her son Josh was diagnosed with Aspergerís Syndrome (AS) that Sophia sought her own eventual diagnosis with the sameóand began her mission to fully research and understand AS and to discover and embrace the special way the brains of those with Aspergerís are wired.

In Sophiaís remarkably candid and deeply personal memoir, she offers firsthand insight into the unique challenges and experiences of both living with Aspergerís Syndrome and raising a child with AS. With the kind of clarity that only comes from true acceptance, Sophia shares the many practical and emotional coping skills she and her son have developed over the years for people in the spectrum of autism and their families, mental health professionals, and teachers.

AspergerísóIf You Only Knew is a triumphant true tale about coming to terms with oneís essential self, trusting in others, welcoming laughter, and realizing oneís true potential. It serves as an invaluable source of comfort, hope, and guidance to anyone touched by AS.
