The picture book all cats have asperger syndrome by Kathy Hooperman is a highly recommended read/look if you know and love someone with Asperger Syndrome (AS).

I absolutely love this book!

Gorgeous and hilarious photos of cats and kittens are matched with descriptions of Asperger Syndrome in a touching and humorous manner, highlighting the unique qualities and potential of people with AS.

People with Asperger Syndrome are different, not defective, and this book emphasises their distinctive attributes.

The book is terrific for explaining AS to children, including siblings in a gentle, entertaining manner.

I would also recommend it as an educational tool for relatives and friends who may not have time to read copious technical material on autism spectrum disorder.

I have myself read this book to young primary school children as an awareness raising exercise – they laughed their heads off at the pictures (and I hope they learned something as well – haha).

ps. Cathy Hooperman has another picture book All dogs have ADHD which is just as good (I’m sure we all know someone with ADHD πŸ˜‰ ).

    1. Haha – anyone who knows about cats and knows someone with asperger syndrome, will quickly acknowledge the connection in behaviour (same with dogs and ADHD)! Thanks adeeyoyo πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve always said that all you have to do is compare a cat to a dog to realize a cat has Asperger’s. That dogs have ADHD never occurred to me. I just thought of them as two-year-olds, but it’s true.

  2. Some people have such amazing ideas and are so creative and inspiring. What an impressive book. I’m sure it has helped countless people. I hope she doesn’t stop the series there. I am hanging out for ‘All Goldfish have A Superiority Complex.’ πŸ˜†

  3. Oh I will have to get my hands on this book. I have a dear friend who works with children with special needs and this will be great for her personally and professionally. It looks awesome!
