The authors write with authority and conviction, and tackle even the most difficult and delicate of topics. If ever you needed to be convinced that girls with ASD can overcome the difficulties and challenges of puberty and adolescence, have successful friendships and relationships and enjoy a healthy sexuality, then take the time to read this book - it is a must-have for families, teachers and therapists alike.' -Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex: A Forthright Guide to Puberty, Sex and Relationships for People with Asperger's Syndrome Growing up isn't easy, and the trials and tribulations of being a teenager can be particularly confusing for girls with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). This book covers all the concerns commonly faced by girls with ASDs and their parents, from periods and puberty to worries over friendships and 'fitting in'. Taking a good look at these adolescent issues, and many more, within the context of specific areas of difficulty for girls with ASDs, the authors provide families with the knowledge and advice they need to help their daughters - and the whole family - through the teenage years. This book addresses core issues such as cognition, communication, behavior, sensory sensitivities, and social difficulties; it gives candid and realistic advice on a wide range of important teenage topics. Providing professional perspectives alongside personal experiences from mothers, daughters and educators, this is a unique and indispensible guide for families and their daughters with ASDs, as well as the teachers and professionals who work with them.

There is nothing mild about mild autism. I hear people say, “He’s got high functioning autism. It’s only mild. He will be grand.” What people on the outside don’t see are the challenges people with autism face every day. And the one problem most people with autism spectrum disorder have is this invisible and often very significant disability of lacking theory of mind. This is the innate foundation of all communication in every man, woman, and child on this Earth, and they don’t have it. I want you to walk in my shoes. I want to share my way of thinking with you, my point of view. I have constructed a group of my real stories to let you into my thoughts. I believe that after reading my memoirs, you will have gained a comprehensive knowledge of what it really means to have autism spectrum disorder.

Einfach ein großartiges Buch: Die Tochter erhält die Diagnose Asperger und die Mutter erkennt sich - endlich - in dieser Diagnose wieder. Sie beschreibt im Rückblick ihre Lebensgeschichte und reflektiert es nun in Kenntnis der Asperger-Diagnose. Ernst, lustig und voller Anekdoten. Dabei immer spannend, denn man wartet darauf, wie der nächste Lebensabschnitt bis zur Hochschullehrerin mit drei Kindern verlaufen wird - und welchen Anteil das Asperger-Syndrom dabei hat. Ein Extrakapitel widmet sie den Ereignissen, als Asperger-Autistin Kinder zu haben. Sehr offen, in klaren Worten und schnörkellos beschrieben - und dabei doch sehr ins Detail gehend. Sie beschreibt Gefühle intensiver, als so mancher Mensch ohne Asperger. Sie muss die Gefühle für sich genau beschreiben, um sie zu verstehen. "Auch wenn es 38 Jahre lang gedauert hat - ich kann gar nicht deutlich genug sagen, was für eine Erleichterung es war, mich endlich selbst zu finden!" Ein gelungenes Ende findet das Buch mit zahlreichen Checklisten für alle Lebensbereiche. Hier gibt Liane H. Willey viele wichtige Hinweise, worauf man als Asperger-Autist achten sollte (bei der Ausbildung, der Arbeit, in Beziehungen etc.). Mit einem sehr persönlichen Vorwort von Tony Attwood Das Buch: „Meine Tochter hat Asperger!" Liane Willey hatte von dieser Krankheit noch nie gehört, und nun erfährt sie: Unter Asperger oder „High-function-Autismus" leiden viele Menschen, ohne es zu wissen - „besondere" Menschen, die zu zurückgezogenem oder egozentrischem Verhalten neigen, die oft hoch begabt sind, aber an Selbstwertproblemen, Überempfindlichkeit, Unsicherheit, Verzweiflung leiden. Sie fühlen sich mitunter wie „Ausländer im eigenen Land" oder wie „Außerirdische, die auf einem falschen Planeten gelandet sind". Die Diagnose ihrer Tochter verändert ihr Leben, denn Liane Willey begreift, dass sie seit Jahrzehnten mit den gleichen Symptomen zu kämpfen hatte: „Ich kann die Erleichterung nicht ausdrücken, die ich empfand, als ich schließlich realisierte, dass meine Tochter und ich nicht an einer Geisteskrankheit oder einer gespaltenen Persönlichkeit litten oder etwas Ähnlichem. Wir haben Asperger. Damit können wir leben! Wir können unsere Ziele und Träume erreichen, und wir können unser Leben weiterführen - mit Optimismus und Hoffnung. Wie aufregend die Erkenntnis, dass ich ganz einfach Dinge anders sehe, anders auffasse, anders empfange als andere und dass das so in Ordnung ist. Es ist meine Normalität." Liane Willey erzählt ihre Lebensgeschichte von der frühen Kindheit über die Schul- und Collegezeit bis zum Leben als Berufstätige und Mutter von drei Kindern. Sie macht deutlich, wie die Welt von einer „Aspie" erlebt wird - von den Strategien, mit denen es ihr gelang, ihren eigenen Weg zu finden, aber auch von dem oft erheblichen Leidensdruck, der damit einherging. In einem Anhang folgen praktische Hinweise „von immenser Präzision, was die Vorschläge (und Erfahrungen) angeht, im Alltag Probleme zu bewältigen, die sich einem Menschen mit Asperger-Autismus stellen" (Ulrich Rabenschlag). Ein persönliches Buch, das die Menschen, die Asperger haben - einer großen europäischen Studie zufolge in Deutschland pro Jahrgang ca. 5000 Menschen -, in ihrer Besonderheit versteht und ihnen Achtung und Sympathie entgegenbringt. Ein spannender Fallbericht nicht nur für Betroffene, sondern auch für Eltern, Erzieher, Lehrer, Psychologen und Ärzte.

The transition from primary to secondary school is a time of great anxiety for most children. For children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) this anxiety can be overwhelming. Fear of the unknown, difficulty coping with monumental changes and the inability to imagine a favourable outcome, can all combine to make this unavoidable step in school life a time of great fear and dread. This book provides guidance for schools and parents on how to make the transfer from primary to secondary as easy as possible for children with ASDs. The book advocates the need for scrupulous preparation of transfer arrangements because children with ASDs struggle to predict the outcome of any new situation. No matter how much discussion has taken place, it is only when the situation has been experienced first hand that they will have a real understanding of it and be able to build up a 'real life memory bank' (RLMB). The authors' advice aims to ensure that any preparations lead to a favourable outcome, in order to build a positive RLMB. The book outlines term by term preparation in the final years of primary school and includes photocopiable resources and a "Moving to Secondary School" booklet. As most children with ASDs are visual learners and think in pictures, the booklet uses symbols to aid understanding. Making the Move provides a wealth of effective strategies and resources that will encourage and inspire greater confidence for pupils with ASDs, parents and schools.

Wie geht man damit um, wenn die eigenen Kinder ganz anders sind als man selbst, was bedeutet das für sie und ihre Familien? Und wie akzeptieren wir und unsere Gesellschaft außergewöhnliche Menschen? Ein eindrucksvolles Buch über das Elternsein, über die Kraft der Liebe, aber auch darüber, was unsere Identität ausmacht. Der Bestsellerautor Andrew Solomon hat mit über 300 Familien gesprochen, deren Kinder außergewöhnlich oder hochbegabt sind, die das Down-Syndrom haben oder an Schizophrenie leiden, Autisten, taub oder kleinwüchsig sind. Ihre Geschichten sind einzigartig, doch ihre Erfahrungen des „Andersseins“ sind universell. Ihr Mut, ihre Lebensfreude und ihr Glück konfrontieren uns mit uns selbst und lassen niemanden unberührt. »Solomon hat eine Ideengeschichte geschrieben, die zur Grundlage einer Charta der psychologischen Grundrechte des 21. Jahrhunderts werden könnte... Erkenntnisse voller Einsicht, Empathie und Klugheit.« Eric Kandel »Das vielleicht größte Geschenk dieses monumentalen, so faktenreichen wie anrührenden Werks besteht darin, dass es zum permanenten Nachdenken anregt.« Philip Gourevitch »Dieses Buch schießt einem Pfeil um Pfeil ins Herz.« The New York Times »Dies ist eines der außergewöhnlichsten Bücher, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe: mutig, einfühlsam und zutiefst menschlich... Seine Geschichten sind von meisterhafter Feinfühligkeit und Klarheit.« Siddhartha Mukherjee, Autor von ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹
