Explaining Asperger Syndrome with kittens

Dec 27, 2012 By Abraham

At first glance, this book looks like a very un-PC joke…

But actually it’s a real book that gives children a simple and sensitive introduction to Asperger’s by comparing characteristics of the syndrome with characteristics of cats…

If you’re dealing with ADHD, then you’ll need the sequel to this book which is about dogs.

    Academic difficulties are also frequent. The symptoms are especially difficult to define because it is hard to draw a line at where normal levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity end and clinically significant levels requiring intervention begin. To be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms must be observed in two different settings for six months or more and to a degree that is greater than other children of the same age.
