Asperger syndrome is a form of autism affecting an individual’s ability to understand, communicate and interact with other people. As it is often not obvious from their outward appearance that someone has Asperger syndrome, people do not always realise that they are different, leading to confusion on both sides. This new book by Olley Edwards, who has herself grown up with Asperger syndrome, aims to help Asperger girls gain a better understanding of their condition and take control of their lives to become more effective and happy individuals - without changing who they are. Why Aren’t Normal People Normal? explains the difficulties that girls with Asperger syndrome may encounter and gives practical suggestions for coping with everyday situations. This is a much-needed, practical, self-help book written by someone who has first-hand experience of trying to co-exist with ‘normal’ people. This book is for anyone with Asperger syndrome and all the many as yet undiagnosed girls who are feeling socially isolated and misunderstood without understanding why.

The transition from primary to secondary school is a time of great anxiety for most children. For children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) this anxiety can be overwhelming. Fear of the unknown, difficulty coping with monumental changes and the inability to imagine a favourable outcome, can all combine to make this unavoidable step in school life a time of great fear and dread. This book provides guidance for schools and parents on how to make the transfer from primary to secondary as easy as possible for children with ASDs. The book advocates the need for scrupulous preparation of transfer arrangements because children with ASDs struggle to predict the outcome of any new situation. No matter how much discussion has taken place, it is only when the situation has been experienced first hand that they will have a real understanding of it and be able to build up a 'real life memory bank' (RLMB). The authors' advice aims to ensure that any preparations lead to a favourable outcome, in order to build a positive RLMB. The book outlines term by term preparation in the final years of primary school and includes photocopiable resources and a "Moving to Secondary School" booklet. As most children with ASDs are visual learners and think in pictures, the booklet uses symbols to aid understanding. Making the Move provides a wealth of effective strategies and resources that will encourage and inspire greater confidence for pupils with ASDs, parents and schools.
