*Gold Medal Winner in the Sexuality / Relationships Category of the 2011 IPPY Awards* * Honorary Mention in the 2010 BOTYA Awards Women's Issues Category * Girls with Asperger's 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's Syndrome.

And, to make life easier, these models are presented in graph form where possible.

Girl Misunderstood One Girl s Journey to Understanding Her Asperger s As a Gift

The main message in this book that Bryony expresses is that having Asperger's can be seen as a spiritual gift.

As a young child, Bryony always knew she was different to the other girls at school. Every year, her teachers remarked how "quiet, shy and reserved" she was, while her parents observed how she had difficulty approaching other girls to be friends with them. Although she was familiar with Asperger's, the lack of understanding of autism in women meant that she didn't realise she had it until she was 21, in her second year of university. Now she was faced with reforming her identity in young adulthood, a difficult task for anyone. Girl, Misunderstood is a book for any autistic woman, or indeed any woman who feels that they are different, to reshape their beliefs about being on the autism spectrum in a more positive, and even spiritual, way. Bryony reflects on her life as a shy young child growing up relying on her closest friends to help her navigate the world, through to becoming a more confident, yet still reserved, young adult leaving university and entering the daunting 'real world'. In her attempt to help others, she gives advice based on her own experiences, particularly on relationships with family, friends and romantic partners. Most importantly and central to the book, she discusses her special interest in spirituality and how her interest in this through a dark period in her life helped her to see Asperger's in a novel new light, and how people with Asperger's may be different for a reason. This book is designed to make readers question the negative perception of autism in society and to empower autistic women to think positively about being different and recognise their strengths. The main message in this book that Bryony expresses is that having Asperger's can be seen as a spiritual gift.

Life with Asperger's Syndrome can be a challenge at the best of times, and trials and tribulations that neurotypicals take in their stride can leave Aspies perplexed and unsure of how best to solve problems and keep themselves safe, both physically and emotionally. This book explores difficulties that those with AS may face, and suggests practical and helpful ways of overcoming them. Liane Holliday Willey's positive and encouraging advice teaches people with Asperger Syndrome how to appreciate their differences and work from their strengths, by being honest about and coping with challenges. By setting realistic expectations, she shows how it can be possible to live on your own and take care of yourself, touching upon everything from banking and housing to roommates, friendships, and relationships. Jobs and the workplace are explored as advice is given on interviewing, performance, and getting along with colleagues, and the importance of setting boundaries is explained. The focus throughout is on keeping yourself safe, and this extends to travel, cultural awareness, and generally organising yourself. Personal hygiene and the body are also covered, along with nutrition and illness. The advice all adds up to show that people with AS can safeguard themselves from emotional and physical harm and live happy and independent lives, as long as the right guidance is available. This book will be of interest to people with Asperger Syndrome, their friends and families, and professionals working alongside ASDs.
