The Girl with the Curly Hair: Asperger’s Syndrome in 5-8 Year Olds



This guide is a good starting point for parents with an autistic child in beginning to talk openly about how the child is feeling and the difficulties they might be having.Identifying and expressing how you feel can be really hard when you are so young, and even harder if you have autism. This guide is interactive – first it describes the characters The Girl with the Curly Hair and The Boy with the Spiky Hair, and then invites the child to answer questions about themselves! Use this guide to help young autistic children feel less alone and to get them to start opening up about their challenges.
