Aspergers and Girls

Authors: Tony Attwood / Teresa Bolick / Catherine Faherty / Temple Grandin / Lisa Iland / Jennifer McIlwee Myers, et al.

Winner of the Gold Award in the 2006 ForeWord Book of the Year competition, this groundbreaking book describes the unique challenges of women and girls with Aspergers Syndrome. In it youll read candid stories written by the indomitable women who have lived them. Youll also hear from experts who discuss whether Aspie girls are slipping under the radar, undiagnosed; 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.

Covering topics such as diagnoses, education, puberty, relationships, and careers, experts in the field share practical advise for both caregivers and the women and girls who are affected by Asperger's. Other chapters are written by women who have been diagnosed with ASD. They candidly reveal their experiences and compassionately advise others. Finally, a book about autism that recognizes the unique problems of girls on the spectrum, instead of taking the one size fits all approach.

Did you know:

  • The ratio of male to female Asperger's diagnoses is approximately 10:1, yet research suggests the actual incidence is 4:1
  • Education programs often fall short when it comes to meeting girls' specific academic and social needs
  • Without appropriate education, puberty can be a nightmare for girls with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)
  • Dating and marriage may be very different for women on the spectrum, but in many ways, ASD relationships can be even better than typical ones

    Contributors include world-renowned Austism experts Tony Attwood and Temple Grandin.
