Asperger’s and Girls

Description

Winner of the Gold Award in the 2006 ForeWord Book of the Year competition and still as relevant as ever, this groundbreaking book describes the unique challenges of women and girls with Aspergers Syndrome.

In it you’ll read candid stories written by the indomitable women who have lived them. You’ll also hear from experts who discuss whether Aspie girls are slipping under the radar, un-diagnosed; why many AS women feel like a minority within a minority (outnumbered by men 4:1); practical solutions school systems can implement for girls; social tips for teenage girls, navigating puberty, the transition to work or university, and the importance of careers.
