"All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome" takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS. Delightful colour photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked, and particular eating habits. Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality, and potential of people with AS. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS.

'There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
A delightful book that looks at many different behaviours related to cats and those living with Aspergers Syndrome. These behaviours are seen as part of the individual and thus are not stigmatised. The ending is beautiful, when it says there is a little in all of us. It is a great book to read to a child with a diagnosis, whether or not he/she understands the diagnosis as he/she may relate to some of the behaviours or know others whose behaviour is described.
A great book and very accessible for children and adults alike. Can be a bit general - obviously not all traits will apply across the spectrum, so you'll need to use judgement and explanation if you are using this book to teach others about a particular person with AS.
