Inside Asperger's Looking Out follows in the best-selling footsteps of Kathy Hoopmann's All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome and All Dogs Have ADHD. Through engaging text and full-color photographs, this book shows neurotypicals how Aspies see and experience the world. Each page brings to light traits that many Aspies have in common, from sensitive hearing and an aversion to bright lights and strong smells, to literal thinking and difficulty understanding social rules and reading body language and facial expressions. At the same time, the book highlights and celebrates the unique characteristics that make those with Asperger's Syndrome special. This is the perfect introduction to the world of Aspies, told from their own perspective, for the people in their lives: including family, friends, and classmates. Those with Asperger's Syndrome will also appreciate this book for the way it shares their own singular perspectives on life.

    Comments about Insider Asperger's Looking Out:

    This is an excellent book. As a grandmother with a grandchild who has broard sprectum autism - in other words, Aspergers Syndrome, our family serched for information when our grandson first began to display symptions of a problem that we were finding difficult to obtain a dianosis. I always knew that this was his problem. However, it was difficult to get his parents to initially take him to a doctor for a diagnosis. Even after having him referred to The Mater Childrens Hospital, they still did not pick up on the correct diognosis. We were told that he needed to start attending a Special School, that he had delayed development and even that he had low intelligence.

    Now, almost 16 years of age, he has gone through a normal school and always achieved good marks for his school work. He understands algerbra, is excellent with his rugby sports. The only problem I see, is that he does not understand that he must apply himself to study to make a life and future for himself. However, with a very undertsanding father who communicates with all of his children, he is gradually realising that school life will not go on forever.

    It is an ongoing prosess. Gradually making him aware of life after school and possible future possibilities.
    If he becomes frightened we are able to see the signs in his hand movements and state of being.
    He needs to be understood. Not blamed for his reactions on the rare occasion where a problem may arise with an interaction with another student, or students. We listen to him. We are his voice when the rare situation arises that a problem at school, or on the school bus happens. We listen to his side of the story, Then we go through the set of events that happened. And gradually help him to resolve the problem. It is terrible to see and feel him sitting on his bed, hands flapping, frightened. It saddens me that many other family members just don't 'get him'

    He is an intelligent human being who needs support and love, with uderstanding.

        This book explains Asperger's syndrome so well. I am a mother of a boy with Aspergers and have shared this book with friends and families. After they look at the book you can see they understand "Aspergers" from a whole new angle. . Its easy and straight forward. Every school should have one. The pictures of the animals are adorable and so well suited.

          This is the perfect introduction to the world of Aspies, told from their own perspective, for the people in their lives: including family, friends, and classmates. Those with Asperger's Syndrome will also appreciate this book for the way it shares their own singular perspectives on life. -- Centre 404, Islington Through engaging text and full-colour photographs, this book shows neurotypical how Aspies see and experience the world. This is the perfect introduction to the world of Asperger's, told from their own perspective, for the people in their lives: including family, friends, and classmates. -- Books from our backyard, Queensland Writers Centre, Australia Simplicity is key for me and I think that is why I love this book so much. The words that Kathy Hoopmann uses are not condescending or derogatory, but respectful and trying to get NT's (neuro-typical people) to understand how and why we live our lives the way we do. The words on each page are fact - as seen in diagnostic manuals, but are put into more friendly terms... Inside Asperger's is a must read book for those with AS, parents and people who work with AS patients. -- A Female Reviews Blogspot blog This bright and positive book is written with the emphasis that being different is agreat way to be. The book addresses the many differing characteristics, struggles, and strengths of people with Asperger's. The text provides teh reader with the opportunity to adopt and better understand the perspective of children with Asperger's. It could be a useful resource for people with Asperger's as well as for people living with and working with this population. The gaol of acceptance as well as understanding is demonstrated by easy-to-read and entertaining text and pictoral illustrations. -- Virginia Child Protection Newsletter This book should not only appear in those classes which have Aspies (their own preferred term) among their number because it is an invaluable book fo all KS2 teachers and children to share. -- The SL (School Librarian) Kathy has worked with children with Asperger syndrome for many years and her books explain, through the use of engaging photographs, the world as it may appear to those with different learning and social traits. -- SNIP By the author of All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome and All Dogs Have ADHD, this engaging book, told with little text and comic animal photographs, nevertheless imparts quite complex information on what makes a child with Asperger's syndrome tick. A great way to help children understand it. -- The Teacher Even though I have several friends with children with Asperger's, I found this book gave me a fresh insight into the challenges faced by Aspies and their families. I think it is a perfect book to have on hand in both the home and school environments to help explain common Asperger's traits such as hypersensitivity to sounds and visual stimuli and difficulty interpreting facial cues and body language. I particularly liked the focus on highlighting the positives of the Asperger's experience, encouraging readers to consider Aspies as simply viewing life in a different way but still sharing the same hopes, dreams and needs as anyone else... I would highly recommend this book as a very helpful resource for schools, daycare centres, preschools and for families with children with Asperger's to help friends and family gain insight and understanding into this condition. -- Kids Book Review In a few words the text on each page succinctly explains what it is like to have Asperger's syndrome and the illustrations will engage and delight children, parents and those who have Asperger's syndrome. However, I think this book should come with a government health warning - you may laugh until you hurt! -- Tony Attwood, Minds & Hearts Clinic, Brisbane, Australia, and author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome This book is a visual feast of information on Asperger syndrome and the autism spectrum. Simple, yet complex information is shared with a genius for visual expression. I recommend this lovely book to all who wish to better understand individuals on the Asperger-autism spectrum. Kathy Hoopmann scores another home run! -- Susan J. Moreno, CEO and Founder of MAAP Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome Most of us see the world from the point of 'what will others think', and we adjust our view accordingly. Kathy helps us take another, much more honest look, as she exposes the black and white but very colourful world of the Aspie. This book shows that being different is the most normal way to be. That being one's self is an adventure not to be missed. This is a book we should all read and have and celebrate. -- Dr Wendy Lawson, author of Life Behind Glass: A Personal Account of Autism Spectrum Disorder Inside Asperger's Looking Out is a wonderful, whimsical portrait of Asperger's told with pictures and animals that anyone - young or old - can love. It is destined to be a classic, just like Kathy's earlier book, All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome. -- John Elder Robison, author of Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's
