Asperger's and Girls
By Dr. Temple Grandin, Dr. Tony Attwood, Catherine Faherty, Sheila Wagner, Mary Wrobel, Teresa Bolick and many more!
Because the majority of those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders are boys and men, the voices of girls on the spectrum have been practically inaudible—until now. At long last, here is a book that provides women on the autism spectrum the opportunity to tell the world about their experiences, good and bad. Their candid reflections will warm your heart while giving you a backstage pass to another realm. Leading professionals in the field punctuate this masterpiece with fascinating articles that offer insightful advice. Finally, autism literature isn’t just a “man’s world.”
