Aspergirls: Empowering Females with Asperger Syndrome

Rudy Simone is an Asperger Syndrome Consultant and what she terms an “Aspergirl”. Rudy’s book addresses the critical need for improved diagnosis of this syndrome in girls as the majority of information and understanding of AS relates primarily to boys. Rudy covers a wide variety of topics that impact the lives of young women with AS, who, without a proper diagnosis, remain confused and overwhelmed by the world with which they have to contend. Rudy includes personal anecdotes from thirty-five other women with AS in her frank discussions about such topics as the need for personal awareness, good hygiene, healthy living, a good education, personal safety, medications, and relationships. Rudy offers Aspergirls and women practical considerations on how to navigate the world with the challenges they encounter. She also has words of advice for parents to help their daughters foster healthy and productive lives.

This book offers refreshing insights into an area of AS that has been overlooked for far too long.
