Product description

"All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome" takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS. Delightful colour photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked, and particular eating habits. Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality, and potential of people with AS. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS.

Customer reviews

By Tricia Holman-O'Boyle 24 Jul 2012 5

This book made me cry! My four year old has just been diagnosed and the simple text rang so true. This book also made me laugh at the wonderful traits that my son has because of this condition. I think I will share this with my family so they can also understand more about his behaviour and just how special he is.

By Fiona Bray 15 Feb 2009 5

My son loves this book.
It gives a simple explanation to some of the traits a child with Asperger's Syndrome may display using beautiful colour pictures of cats!
A very simple way to help children understand what Asperger's Syndrome is!

Review quote

'There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
