‘Changes during puberty, such as the onset of periods, are challenging for those 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’.


About the Author

Written by autistic author Robyn Steward, this is a detailed guide for young people aged 9 to 16 on the basics of menstruation. Created in consultation with young people, an online survey and a group of medical professionals, this is a book that teaches all people about periods, which can be a scary and overwhelming issue.

Promoting the fact that everyone either has periods or knows someone who does, the book reduces the anxiety children face in asking for help. It offers direct advice on what periods look and feel like and how to manage hygiene and pain. It also breaks up information using flaps and step-by-step photos of how to change pads and tampons, it discusses alternatives to tampons and pads, and gives information about possible sensory issues for people with autism.

I want to make her ready!

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.

Thank you for writing this book.

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.
