An Autism Spectrum Disorder is often overlooked in girls. This is particularly true with Asperger’s or high functioning Autism. “Asperger’s in Pink: A Mother and Daughter Guidebook for Raising (or being) a Girl with Asperger’s” by Julie Clark gets rid of mundane lists of the signs and symptoms and turns to captivating the reader by sharing the journey of a mother and daughter from diagnosis and beyond.
From lessons of working with schools to revealing the difficulties associated with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Julie Clark does a wonderful job educating the reader in a way that doesn’t feel to be a ‘lesson plan’. Included in “Asperger’s in Pink“, Julie Clark adds “Pink Pearls of Wisdom” which highlight key points for each section, as well as passages from her daughter which further leaves the reader charmed. For any family in the journey of Asperger’s, with a son or daughter, this book would be a welcome addition in their library.
