Summary

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 Asperger's Syndrome. In it you'll hear 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, 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.

Helpful chapters include:

  • The Pattern of Abilities and Development of Girls with Asperger's Syndrome

No so much women but rather girls

Not too much information for women, it mostly focuses on helping girls up to adulthood. That informations is very good. But there's not much practical information for women
