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

1. Biology; 2. Pads or tampons; 3. Sensory experience; 4. Executive functioning; 5. Emotions

In this fantastic, important and really useful book written by an autistic woman, Robyn explains periods in a kid-friendly, autism-friendly, human-being friendly way. Highly recommended!
Robyn Steward is an autistic woman with experience of mentoring others on the spectrum, and author of The Independent Woman's Handbook for Super Safe Living on the Autistic Spectrum 2013.
