Have you ever wondered why she says she feels different to her peers? Wondered why life seems challenging for her? Her peers seem to gracefully and naturally meet their milestones, yet she has reached some developmental milestones early and some late. She may have spoken and read early, asking an endless array of questions. Maybe at age four she was teaching herself to read as you drove down the road by reading street signs. 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 the professionals just cannot find an explanation that completely fits her.

She may be very artistic, whether she sings, draws, paints, or writes, at times, too mature for her age. Yet, she struggles socially and emotionally, acting and appearing younger than her peers. She may be ten years old now, yet none of your research completely fits her or maybe you have just now come across some information on females that completely makes sense to you. Maybe she is "Aspien", a young female with Asperger Syndrome or High-Functioning Autism. She has a unique constellation of super-abilities, strengths,in addition to challenges. She may feel or say that she is from another Planet, Planet Aspien®. If you are looking for a book on the often perplexing and unique female Autism Spectrum traits, then this is the book for you. 

Tania has worked with many individuals, across the lifespan. Many of them have expressed feeling as though they are from another planet, the "wrong planet", that they don't fit in, a feeling that the "mother ship" dropped them off at the wrong destination and/or that there is something "wrong" with them. These individuals who are adults have grown up with low self-esteem, a sense of loneliness, alienation, depression, being bullied and/or misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, diagnostic criteria focuses on "deficits", "weaknesses" and/or "challenges", and often ignores talents. It is becoming quite well-known that many individuals with Autism are quite gifted in particular areas. Females with Asperger Syndrome tend to be gifted in the areas of cognitive intelligence, art, music, acting, modelling, technology, writing, singing and performing, advanced reading ability, languages, mathematics, languages, nature or animals, to name a few. It has been shown that higher percentage of individuals on the Spectrum have perfect or near-perfect pitch. The premise of the book is to discuss the unique characteristics, traits and strengths and gifts of young girls and teens, both the challenges and the talents. Many adults on the Spectrum that I have worked with have experienced low self esteem, depression, suicidal ideation (27 x greater), bullying, being misunderstood, misdiagnoses, receiving the wrong interventions and spending years themselves not understanding their difficulties. Many of the adults I have worked with lack a solid sense of self and identity, and this has been the cause of many difficulties for them throughout their lives. The next generations of females hopefully will be receiving an early diagnosis, learning about the way their brain is wired, what type of learner they are/learning profile, their sensory profile, their challenges and their interests, talents or gifts. There is no better anti-depressant than discovering what your strengths/interests are and developing and/or being engaged in them. A positive strengths-based self-identity and self esteem is critical. The use of AspienGirl serves as a strengths-based positive identity, which early on can prevent the many difficulties I have seen from developing later on, for those that as adults ares struggling with.
I Am AspienGirl® is currently being translated into the following languages: Spanish, Italian, French, Norwegian, Chinese, German, Hungarian, Dutch, Portuguese and Turkish.

Watch for the sequel, "I am AspienWoman", coming soon.

1.0 von 5 Sternen To be fair, I think I was expecting too much. 3. Dezember 2014
Von ej220 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I think I’d seen this book advertised so often and had heard so much about it that I was expecting too much from it. It’s loaded with quotes, and some of those may be helpful to spectrum girls and their significant others, but I felt that some of the quotes from family members and caregivers were problematic, and I’m not sure that’s something that would be clear to a professional conducting interviews in the same way it’s clear to an Aspie reading this book, either for entertainment purposes or for personal edification. A lot of children probably would not immediately pick up on the implications of those statements, but trust me – on a long enough timeline of hearing about what a drain you must be on the people around you, or what a nightmare it is to live with someone like you (sometimes from well-meaning strangers or acquaintances, sometimes on parenting blogs, and sometimes from friends and family members themselves), these things tend to jump out at you. (For example, in one quote, “Grateful parents” state that their psychologist having taught their daughter about body language and degrees of emotion has “saved our family from what was once a terrifying place to be”. Another quote from “bewildered” family members addresses their daughter’s “explosions” after a school day. Having spent lots of time around teenagers, I also think a lot of the quotes about teenage spectrum girls are things that could be said of any teenage girl.) All of the good intentions in the world don’t soften the kinds of psychological blows that come from feeling like a burden on the people you love the most.

It also strikes me as problematic that Aspie girls throughout the text are given an otherworldly, alien treatment. I spent a fair amount of time reflecting on why “Planet Aspien” and the classification of its native population as superheroes or aliens felt off to me, and I think my issue with it is that there is a long history of dehumanizing and othering of disabled people and members of other marginalized groups by non-group members. It feels remarkably different to me when a member of a marginalized group says, “I feel alien when I look at the behaviors/relationships of the people around me” than it does to hear a person who is admittedly not a member of the same group say, “Members of ‘x group’ are superhuman/have super powers/are alien/are from another planet.” I could discuss the social privilege involved here at greater length, but I hope having said as much as I did has made my point adequately.

The bulk of most pages are photographs inlaid with brief quotes, and I think I expected to see more thorough presentation or discussion of the traits being highlighted throughout the book. I think a huge opportunity was missed there, especially given that my impression is that this book is intended not just for children, but for professionals and significant others, as well. A lot could have been done to bridge common communication gaps and misunderstandings between spectrum girls and the people around them. I think it’s really difficult for neurotypicals to understand that those of us on the spectrum genuinely struggle with certain aspects of communication that are instinctive to neurotypicals. I also think neurotypicals do not necessarily intuitively understand that a lot of our rituals and routines are deeply therapeutic. I don’t doubt that neurotypical loved ones are trying to be understanding and empathetic, but I think that once you’ve spent your entire life thinking about the world and other people in a certain way, it’s not necessarily second nature to be able to flip things around and look at the world (or your child) in another light. I don’t see how this book could help bridge those kinds of gaps in places in which they’re still problematic.

There’s an appendix in the back of the book that lays out common traits of AS girls, and close to half of the traits in question are statements that begin, “May have/be/feel, etc.” This suggests to me that those traits are as likely to not be present as they are to be present. My assumption is that the intent would be that a clinician would ideally look for the majority of those characteristics in prospective spectrum girls, but if those traits are not necessarily present in girls with AS, I wonder how helpful the list actually is. I suppose there’s no way to know without further research, but I look forward to seeing the research when it’s complete, and I hope the author will consider fleshing out some of the concepts in the previous paragraph of this review much more thoroughly in her next book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Eye catching and thought provoking 17. Dezember 2014
Von CW - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this book to be a series of creative snapshots that allow the reader to either identify or catch a glimpse of what this unique group struggles with. This book might help to direct some to seek out further answers while helping to identify characteristics that set them apart. I found it an eye opening summary that gives a voice to those that need to be heard and understood.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Big Disappointment 12. November 2014
Von Katrina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
With so much hype surrounding this book generated by it's author Tania Marshall I really thought this book would have been a lot more interesting and offered more insights and helpful advice as to what Asperger's in Girls is. I bought this book to try and better understand my daughters as they both have Aspergers but I have gained nothing that I hadn't known before.

Quite frankly, I felt this book was pretty much a monologue of what I could hear gossiping at my local ASD support group. Perhaps that is what she has done? Listened to so many stories over the years and just made notes? That is how I interpreted the book. But that is just my opinion.

Save your money and buy from reputable authors who I have loved such as Tony Attwood or Rudy Simone who really know what they are talking about and don't need to constantly `generalise' such as how I thought this author annoyingly did throughout the book. I really got no new insights into anything Asperger's at all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful conversation starter 22. Dezember 2014
Von Brian R. King - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book could serve as a wonderful conversation starter for parents and their Aspiengirl. For girls struggling to figure out who they are and where they fit in the world, it demonstrates simply and powerfully that they are never alone, but in fact, are members of a growing and glorious tribe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a thoughtful, creative and optimistic treatment of aspergers in girls 16. Dezember 2014
Von Sheila Mansell, PhD. R. Psych. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Subject: Review of AspienGirl

In the last couple of years there has been an exciting sea change reflected in the growing number of self advocates, families, mentors, and carers' voices that celebrate neurodiversity and inspire so much hope and possibility. Many voices are being heard as they reach out and teach others as they reject misconceptions about autism and the often faulty preoccupations with deficits, stereotypes and male symptom presentation. Autism has been long misunderstood but so many more researchers and clinicians have been turning their attention to personal accounts to learn more about the internal experiences, gifts and challenges of having Autism. Increasingly, researchers are recognizing more about the diversity of female experience.

Tania Marshall's "I Am AspienGirl" provides a fresh, sensitive and visually creative approach that integrates the perspectives of parents/families, girls, mentors and carers together. There is much to praise in this positive identity work as it sends such a powerful message to girls about learning how to embrace and value who and all they are, and to explore where and how they will contribute in the world. When a girl embraces a positive identity so very much about what she sees as possible for her life profoundly changes. Tania Marshall recognizes that mentors, families and social supports are pivotal to social and personal identity development and has provided a valuable, visually uplifting guide. "I Am AspienGirl" is the first of a series and it is a breath of fresh air. Girls, parents/ families, teachers, professionals and others will benefit from using this book and exploring its exercises and its fresh insights.

A fresh jolt of optimism about the future is not only promising it is essential for positive identity development and mental health. In this field, there has never been as exciting and fertile time as right now. Tania Marshall has much more to share with us and her passion is infectious.
