‘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’.
I talked about periods our autistic daughter a few years ago but wasn't quite sure how much of what I said had sunk in, so recently I brought it up again with this book, along with period pants. I want to make her ready when she starts school in September. She has enjoyed reading the book and is now more receptive to the idea.
I got this book for my 11-year-old daughter. She is autistic but loves reading books. I got this because I know she is about to start her period anytime soon. I wanted to give her the best start to her period. Got this book and tween period pants for her. We feel we are ready.
Thank you for writing this book.
