|Lizzie is an Aspie Girl - she has Asperger's Syndrome, which means that her brain works differently to her friends, and even to boys with Asperger Syndrome. In this book, Lizzie explains what it's like to be an Aspie Girl, including how she has a special talent for blending in with her friends, how she gets really tired after being at school all day, how she worries about making mistakes, and how she finds it hard to understand how she is feeling. By simply, clearly and positively explaining the social differences associated with Asperger's Syndrome, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, in young girls, this book will help Aspie Girls aged 5 years and over to understand their diagsis, recognise their unique strengths and celebrate their differences, and find ways of coping with difficulties. This positive and celebratory book also contains helpful discussion points for parents and professionals to explore further with the girls in their care.|

I wish I had this growing up.
This book is wonderful. Growing up as an undiagnosed Aspie girl I struggled with a lot of the things mentioned, I still do and I spent my whole life feeling different and wrong. I now have a diagnosed 7yr old Aspie daughter who is struggling as well and we have been trying to find a way to help her understand that she is different but not in a bad way. This book will help us so much with talking to her as well as helping her school understand. With not only the story but the section in the back that breaks down each thing to help us help her through it, wonderful. I feel every school should have this book.
