All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome
"All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS. Delightful colour photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked, and particular eating habits. Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality, and potential of people with AS."--Provided by publisher.

This book does an excellent job of explaining the behavorial differences of an Asperger's child, through comparisons to feline behavior. Perfect for helping "normal" children understand those behaviors in their peers who act differently.
