Girls with Asperger's Syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness. This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old. Rudy Simone guides you through every aspect of both personal and professional life, from early recollections of blame, guilt, and savant skills, to friendships, romance and marriage. Employment, career, rituals and routines are also covered, along with depression, meltdowns and being misunderstood. This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger's Syndrome.

Having a child with extreme picky eating habits can be both frustrating and worrisome-especially if you are concerned your child isn't getting the nutrition they need to grow, stay healthy and strong, and thrive. And if your child has a feeding or selective eating disorder (SED), they may simply refuse to eat a number of foods altogether. To make matters worse, children with feeding disorders often experience anxiety, anger, and may be suspicious or untrusting of adults who pressure, trick, and even force them to eat. This book provides a clinically proven program called STEPS (Supportive Treatment of Eating in Preschoolers) that will help you get your child's feeding disorder or SED under control. In addition, you'll find a number of practical strategies you can use for dealing with food aversion, low appetite, sensory challenges, autism spectrum-related food disorders, super-tasters, oral motor delay, acid reflux, and food allergies.
Often described as 'social phobia's cousin' and misdiagnosed as autism, selective mutism is a debilitating fear of speaking in some situations experienced by some children. The disorder usually presents in children before the age of five, but it may not be recognized until the child starts school. When requested to speak, children with selective mutism often look down, blush, or otherwise express anxiety that disrupts their engagement with people and activities. The book details a plan you can use to coordinate professional treatment of your child's disorder. It also explains the steps you can take on your own to encourage your child to speak comfortably in school and in his or her peer group. All of the book's strategies employ a gradual, 'stepladder' approach. The techniques gently encourage children to speak more, while at the same time helping them feel safe and supported.

The Princess Bitchface Syndrome - $19.95
In this hard-hitting book, Michael Carr-Gregg focuses on the special trials of raising adolescent girls today: what to do when your previously quiet, loving daughter becomes a restless, rebellious stranger who behaves like a responsible adult one day and a vampish brat the next. Part of the problem is that girls are becoming sexualised earlier, and their physical development is shooting ahead of their cognitive capacities. By the time they turn 13 they look like they're ready for anything - but they're not. Yet, argues Carr-Gregg, many parents are surrendering their authority and allowing their daughters to be fast-tracked into pseudo-adulthood. We appear to be losing it when it comes to parenting our girls and it's time to grab back the reins. This book is a must-read for every parent with an adolescent daughter.
