Asperger's and Girls

Asperger's and Girls 2014-02-09

A valuable resource for an oft-overlooked and under-served group - women on the autism spectrum. Filled with personal anecdotes and advice from other women on the spectrum such as Temple Grandin and the humorous Jennifer McIlwee-Myers. The Girl-to-Girl chapter (contributed by a young NT woman) did leave a bit to be desired, however...just a bit condescending. All in all, an essential book for women on the spectrum and those who love them. :)
A good, but not great book on the female autism presentation. Did not impress me, but didn't put me off either. Part of a much needed catalogue of information on female autism.
