For anyone with a disability, it can be difficult to do even the 'rmal' tasks of life, such as getting dressed, going to work, cleaning the house and doing the grocery shopping. It can also be difficult to have social interactions. The Girl with the Curly Hair describes the difficulty in doing productive tasks via an intangible unit of measurement, 'social energy.' In this book, she looks at how and why managing day to day activities, including socialising with work colleagues, friends and family, is so tiring for people with Asperger's Syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders. She also looks at introversion and extroversion and how they affect social energy. This book will give the reader greater self awareness. The Girl with the Curly Hair hopes they will come away comforted, kwing they are t alone and that there are some things they can do to manage their social energy for a less stressful life.
