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. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS. `There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

  1. Underbar!!!!!
    Karin E, 16 januari 2015

    En mycket fin bok om hur det är att vara olika på insidan.
    Jag gav boken till min 10 - åring, som mådde dåligt pga sin Diagnos.
    Nu fick han och vi andra se på ett lätt fattat sett, med fina bilder.

  2. 5 av 5!
    Charlotte Southstick, 10 mars 2014

    Formodligen den basta boken som i valdig korthet forklarar typiska drag hos barn och vuxna med AS. Ar man inte mottaglig for tyngre forklaringar om vad AS innebar kan jag varmt rekommendera denna, och jag kan tanka mig att den ar valdigt latt och behjalplig for foraldrar till barn med AS, alla dessa fina kattbilder som passar till texterna tror jag dessutom kan fa barn sjalva att lockas att lasa och forsta sig sjalva battre. Det ar dessutom en bild och ett typdrag per sida, extremt lattlast. ... Läs hela recensionen

  3. Underbar bok! Humoristisk, lekfull och samtidigt djup...

    Underbar bok! Humoristisk, lekfull och samtidigt djup som en ocean. Stort stöd när man lever med Asperger. Bra att ge till nära och kära för större förståelse.

    Valkyria, 8 mars 2011

    Charmig och träffande bok, men väldigt lite text. Mer en fotobok med bildtexter om aspergers. Vet man om detta vid köpet så är det ett bra köp och jag föreställer mig att den är suverän när man ska prata med barn om aspergers syndrom.

  5. Den bästa... du vill läsa om just aspergers. Den är lättförståelig, sympatisk och härlig att läsa. En positiv bok om att ha aspergers och för de som inte har kan förstå mer. Att-bli-glad-bok!

When I first saw the title of this book I was rather intrigued as I have a son who has AS who loves cats. So we both sat down to read it together and right from the start we couldn't stop chuckling. The way the author has put the photos together with how Asperger affects the individual is brilliant. We gave it to people who don't really have a great understanding of Asperger Syndrome and it gave them a better insight into what the world is really like for people who have Asperger. Just an Excellent book. -- Communication Magazine, by NAS What an absolutely charming book! Adorable, funny, interesting photographs of cats are combined with simple, accurate information about Asperger Syndrome in this little gem. It is a PERFECT way to introduce Asperger Syndrome to classmates, neighbors, friends, helpers and community at large. This book should be in the home of every family with a loved one on the spectrum. It should NEVER be on a bookshelf. It should be in someone's hands being shared with someone else! -- The MAAP Two books (All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome and All Dogs Have ADHD both by Kathy Hoopmann) that use a novel, photographic approach to exploring the characteristic personality traits of ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome... Must-have titles for parents with children diagnosed with either of these conditions, and also for Special Needs co-ordinators and Inclusion Manager... Both highly recommended. -- ACHUKA children's blog This is a wonderful, insightful resource for helping students and teachers better understand Asperger Syndrome. The author discusses common personality traits of those with Aspergers and desribes those traits in a playful yet serious manner which helps to elicit empathy and understanding. -- Jaime Parker, Librarian, Irving Independent School District, Irving, TX This book is touching, humorous and gives a great insight, and evokes the joys and challenges of raising a child who is different - a child with Autism. It leaves the reader with a sense of the individuality and the wonderful potential of people with Asperger Syndrome. This is such a great picture book which not only expresses the feelings of an Autistic person in a way that children can understand but also for adults as well. Definitely a book for all. -- BFK They are independent, adventurous and bright but can often leave you utterly bewildered - a description that will have cat-lovers everywhere nodding in agreement. It will also ring a bell for those with friends with Asperger Syndrome. Through the harmony of words and photos, Hoopman's clever sense of humour opens up the world of Asperger to reveal the potential and the individuality that is so often misunderstood. -- Mychild The one thing I notice most about cats, and respect them for, is their independence. It's a funny thing because this is also what I notice about my Aspie friends. In fact, I see this in my own life as well. It's a unique quality that sets us apart from most other humans. Just like cats are not like dogs. I mean we wouldn't want them to be, would we? Kathy's humorous book that highlights the unique qualities of individuals with Asperger's has us "down to a T". -- Wendy Lawson My nine year old Grand-daughter Emma has just been diagnosed with Autism, but to my knowledge has never heard the word Aspergers. I thought that I would read the book to her. After listening up to page 13, she said, "This is a book about my problems not a cats problem at all." I progressed through the book showing her the pictures, which she found highly amusing, and through provoking making comments all along. I myself though that the book should be one that is on all schools bookshelves to introduce to teachers and children into the world of `different' children who have problems that need careful handling. -- Linchpin Journal In her 2006 picture book, Australian author Kathy Hoopmann uses a familiar and beloved subject for many children - cats - to explain and human n
