Changes during puberty, such as the onset of periods, are challenging for girls on the autism spectrum. Written from experience by an autistic woman, this straightforward guide to periods helps the reader to prepare in great detail, from hygiene to pain medication and sensory experiences to mood swings. 
  • There is no other book about periods specifically for people with autism
  • There has been a steady increase in recent years in the number of women and girls being referred for autism diagnosis and around 130,000 females have autism in the UK currently
  • This book provides an alternative to talking about the issue, as many adults would feel uncomfortable discussing this topic in the level of detail many autistic young people will need
 Market: Young autistic people aged 9 to 16; parents or guardians of autistic girls; schools
Industry Reviews
