    Although I was a bit taken aback by the price initially it was worth every single penny as my daughter (7 years old) has read it from cover to cover several times in just the couple of weeks that we’ve had it. She connected with the vast majority of the book and although I’ve been proactive about her Aspergers, read a lot and worked with my daughter to understand as much as possible, this still gave us tools to learn and understand more – in particular the matrix at the end which addresses how each different circumstance makes each individual feel – we are making our own matrix so that my daughter has a visual explanation of the many, many different situations that make her feel uncomfortable, frustrated, angry, anxious or ‘explode’. Completely recommend for any girl with Aspergers – a lot of it is relatable to boys as well.

    Alis Rowe is amazing and so inspiring she writes with such truth!
    All Alis books help me to understand my condition and how to cope, without Alis books I would feel less alone.
    Alis books are easy to understand as they have big writing and lots of visuals I’m an aspie myself so this is an amazing find.
    Alis information comes from a real place as Alis has Aspergers.
    in This book Alis gives ideas and advice on how Aspergers affects the age group from 8-11 years old once diganoised and the problems this age group have at this time. there are some great diagrams in the book on how parents and the child themselves can help understand themselves better.
    I bought this book to help me understand myself better at this time and it all makes sense
    Another great book Alis
    Thank you again

    I really recommend that anyone with ASD or knows a child with ASD reads this book.. It explains everything really well. Me and my daughter read this together, after reading it my daughter opened up about her struggles

  6. Amazon Customer

    We loved the visual guides to understanding ASD. It really helped us understand how my daughter experiences the world and she said it helped her feel less lonely. The tips and strategies section was really practical and helpful.

    My daughter is almost 11 and struggling with school and understanding relationships. This book has given an insight into why situations may be difficult for her and how best to deal with them. Another brilliant book from Alis!

    This book is essential for parents and teachers. Having read it I feel that my aspie girl is not alone and the thought processes she has are shared by others.
    Alis what would we do without you and your wonderful writing!

    Fantastic book with a really positive attitude to ASD, looking forward to going through some of the pages with my daughter.

    As a parent of a suspected ASD daughter, I want to learn all the ways I can to help her. This book has been brilliant in helping me understand why she is constantly shouting etc. I gave 4* as I wish it was so much longer, I feel it’s the tip of the iceberg and I have more to learn!

    have been informally researching about Asperger’s in girls for nearly 3 years. Thought I had read everything but this was a really simple, informative guide. Our daughter is 8 and this book could have her name written all over it: to say she loves reading is an understatement, she likes to be on her own etc… Thank you for explaining to us that she has no ‘ brake’ system and goes from calm to very excited or very sad without going through the various paces that usually lead you to these emotions. Makes understanding our daughter’s needs a lot easier. Have bought the guide to Puberty and this should also be an ‘ interesting’ time.

    I have just been reading this book with an 11 year old girl. She (and I) found it an amazing tool for opening up a conversation and talking about the the things she finds difficult in her life and also to learn about strategies to help her with difficult times. It was a great comfort to her to realise that how she feels is not so unusual. I heard a new word a short while ago. “Diffability” I love it. It highlights my belief that Aspergers is not a disorder just a different approach to life. It’s time the neurotypical world was educated about this. We don’t all fit the same mould. This book is worth every penny.

    Another wonderful and insightful book by the incredible Alis Rowe. Her work is always so clear and very solution orientated. Not only does it highlight common observations, but always gives ideas for support and help in everyday life. It really is a tool box and a “must have” if you have a child with ASD in this age bracket, or indeed deal with children with ASD at primary level. Thank you Alis, another gift to the world of NT and ASD communication!

    I bought this book as a fellow Aspie, so I might be able to understand my childhood more and for research for the children’s books I am writing. I always thought I was just shy which was why I found it hard to fit in, make friends and read in class. Now I know from this that it was that Asperger’s makes it hard for children to understand how to make friends, they are confused as to what to say and do. So, thank you, Alis, for this book.

    This is a beautifully presented guide with examples of typically difficult behaviour in school and at home, with wonderful solutions presented for each! This is perfectly illustrated for parents, carers or teachers to read alone or share with the children (recommended).

    Fantastic book. My very nearly 8 year old and I sat and read through it and agreed on trying some of the things in the book. It is great and visual so he was happy to read through it without it looking like homework!
    Thank you Alis!!

    Only issue we had was that he would rather there was a boy version too. Maybe one that looked like him with a puppy instead of a cat! Lol

    Fantastic, very clear and helpful

    Myself and my 9 year old daughter have found this book so valuable and really enjoy sharing it. We dip in and out of it. I can’t recommend Alis Rowe’s books enough and the insight they give around ASD and Aspergers. The books are accessible, informative and also engaging for adults and young people alike. Thank you x
