The Unique Characteristics, Traits and Gifts of Females on the Autism SpectrumShe says she feels different from her peers, finds life more challenging. While her peers seem to gracefully meet developmental milestones, she reached some early and some late. She may have spoken and read early, asking an endless array of questions. She may have been an overly active child, had sensory issues, or had a speech delay. You knew she was bright from early on, with a sprinkle of some anxiety, social and eating issues, yet there are problems keeping up. Despite being mature for her age, she struggles socially and emotionally, acting and appearing younger than her peers. Maybe she is "Aspien," a young female with Asperger Syndrome or High-Functioning Autism. She has a unique constellation of super-abilities, strengths and challenges. If you are looking for a book on the often perplexing and unique female Autism Spectrum traits, then this is an excellent choice.
