This book is suitable for people of all ages who know someone with Asperger syndrome. "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.
