2010    236 Pages    (Jessica Kingsley Publishers)

ISBN 13: 9781849058261   

Girls with Asperger syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness. This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old.

Girls with Asperger syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness. This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old. Rudy Simone guides you through every aspect of both personal and professional life, from early recollections of blame, guilt, and savant skills, to friendships, romance and marriage. Employment, career, rituals and routines are also covered, along with depression, meltdowns and being misunderstood. Including the reflections of over thirty-five women diagnosed as on the spectrum, as well as some partners and parents, Rudy identifies recurring struggles and areas where Aspergirls need validation, information and advice. As they recount their stories, anecdotes, and wisdom, she highlights how differences between males and females on the spectrum are mostly a matter of perception, rejecting negative views of Aspergirls and empowering them to lead happy and fulfilled lives. This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger syndrome. [less]

ROWE, Alis

2013    217 Pages    (Short Run Press)

ISBN 13: 9780956269324   

My family have known me my entire life. They have been by my side at the doctor's. They have brought me out of shutdowns. They have supported me through depression. Yet, despite being a part of all of these things, they still don't really know what it's like being me, having Asperger's Syndrome. So I wrote this book. The hardest thing about having Asperger's Syndrome is that it can seem like an invisible condition. Females in particular, can be expert at masking their symptoms. Tomorrow I will [...]

My family have known me my entire life. They have been by my side at the doctor's. They have brought me out of shutdowns. They have supported me through depression. Yet, despite being a part of all of these things, they still don't really know what it's like being me, having Asperger's Syndrome. So I wrote this book. The hardest thing about having Asperger's Syndrome is that it can seem like an invisible condition. Females in particular, can be expert at masking their symptoms. Tomorrow I will get up and leave the house, go into work and get on with things, my challenges totally oblivious to the people around me. The next day will be the same. And the day after. I hope this book will build the bridge between people with Asperger's Syndrome and the rest of the world. Most people with Asperger's Syndrome are able and willing to work and live a "normal" life, with the right support and adjustment. The main problem is that most people are just unaware of how they can help. So, let us begin our journey into the wearing but wonderful world that is Asperger's Syndrome. [less]
