Reviews

I have been teaching students on the autistic spectrum for over a decade now and I am energised to think that I can use these books in a comprehensive manner in my class, encourage parents to utilise this material in a comfortable and comforting way at home, and I am massively delighted to believe that students themselves will be able to access, follow and actually use these books! A huge step forward! -- Nichola O'Grady, Special Needs Teacher, St. Laserian's Special School, Carlow, Ireland
This beautifully illustrated book about puberty in girls is aimed specifically at young people on the autistic spectrum, but much of the information will be very useful to any young person beginning to sense that she is growing up. The information is precise and detailed, and the format of the book means that it is written and published in a style that is clear and uncluttered...the emphasis is on things that those on the autistic spectrum might find difficult to understand, such as the term 'puppy fat' and what it actually means, or that following someone around that one has a crush on is not a good idea. The book is very well produced and attractive to hold and read. -- HealthyBooks
