There's no question more frequent than the "Why is your child so different?" question. It becomes more prevalent during the holiday season when not so frequent relatives come to visit. There are many "He looks fine to me" inferences from those that think that when you speak about your children neurologically different children.
Well, Kathy Hoopmann has a trio of books that are great at not only explaining Asperger's and ADHD to children. It is also a lesson for the Adults that read with them.
The bright pictures of Animals in different scenarios will hold the attention of children and adults alike and the captions will dramatically describe the traits for Asperger Syndrome and ADHD to a tee.
These books are very encouraging to children that in someways feel out of place in a group setting. It also is great for adults to not only understand and embrace the differences of these great children, the book helps us (adults) explain to others when the questions come (and they will come). This set of books will cost you under $35 and is great for a family that have recently received a diagnosis.
ALL CATS HAVE ASPERGER SYNDROME
All Cats have Asperger Syndrome is a great tool to help both children and the grown ups that love them understand how AS works. Always known for their aloof behavior and almost disregard for humans, Cats are the perfect parallel to the traits of a person with Asperger Syndrome.
ALL DOGS HAVE ADHD
All Dogs have ADHD, with follows with the theme of All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, is a great book that is an easy read as well as easily to be explained to both children and adults. The book takes a similar humorous approach to explaining ADHD and its traits by using the traits of dogs.
Hoopmann's latest book expands to more of our furry friends to explain what Asperger Syndrome looks like from the inside, or the mind, of the person with the traits.
Different from All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, where the book covers how the world kind of guesses whats going on with the person with Asperger's. Inside Asperger's Looking Out focuses on the person with the diagnosis views the world. This book includes traits not mentioned in the previously mentioned book, such as hyper sensitivity and being sensitive to light.
