    • Hardcover
    All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS.
    Delightful color photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked and particular eating habits.

    Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality and potential of people with AS.
    This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS.
    Alaska, Mimo and Vanilla like this.

    LOVED this cute little book! No greater analogy of Asperger's has yet been made...a great tool for explaining Asperger's to anyone who is unfamiliar with it too.

    Adorable book! :) Loved all the cute and humorous pictures of cats and kittens used for illustrations - cats are incredibly amusing to look at if you catch them at the right moments, which isn't always easy! :) Great book for explaining AS to young people, or even for simply framing AS in a cute, playful, positive way. After all, everyone loves funny cats!

    Just loved this! Such a simple and wonderful way to explain. Easy for anyone to understand or at least perceive what it's all about.

    I have this book. A dear friend sent me a copy. I know it's a bit not age appropriate for me, but this book is so sweet that the little girl inside me tears up when I read it. I like to look through it when I need to remember that being different is a very special gift, even when it seems like anything but.

    I like this book because I can relate to most of it, and it's a good book to give to friends or family so that they can understand a bit more about aspergers in a very short space of time.

    A really excellent introduction into the basic world of Asperger Syndrome. It has pictures of cats as well, so that's an added bonus!
