The Autism-Friendly Guide to Periods

Puberty is difficult and confusing at the best of time — but for autistic girls, there's an additional challenge: most guides about menstruation use confusing, figurative language, and avoid photographs, which are critical to make learning easier for neuroatypical kids. Written by autistic author Robyn Steward, and created in consultation with young people, an online survey and a group of medical professionals, this is a detailed guide for young people on the basics of menstruation.

Promoting the fact that everyone either has periods or knows someone who does, the book reduces the anxiety girls face in asking for help. It offers direct advice on what periods look and feel like and how to manage hygiene and pain. It also breaks up information using flaps and step-by-step photos of how to change pads and tampons, it discusses alternatives to tampons and pads, and gives information about possible sensory issues for people with autism. Her revolutionary guide is the perfect choice for any autistic girl who wants to understand her body and her period better.
