Happy World Autism Awareness Day!
And to celebrate, here is a book that does a great job explaining Asperger Syndrome.
For anyone who knows someone on the autism spectrum
All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome, drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS.
This book does a great job explaining what it’s like to be autistic using short passages and lots of cat pictures.
Cats and autistic children do have a few things in common. For example: sensitivity to loud noises, fussy about what we eat, being able to do the same thing over and over again without getting bored.
The book concentrates more on the main traits of being autistic, like having a hard time socializing with others and not looking at people who are talking to them. But the thing about autism is that no one with autism is the same, just like everyone on earth, no two are alike. So if you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism. No two are alike. Each individual with autism have their own quirks and own way of dealing with their problems.
I recommend this book to parents to help them understand their autistic child.
