May I be excused, my brain is full: Olivia’s Asperger’s story
Imagine knowing you are different and not knowing why. . . this is Olivia’s story. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at age 10, Olivia bravely invites us into her thoughts and mind as she copes with life as an “aspie”. Her story, colourfully told, illustrates her own coping strategies to manage her differences in a way that relates to younger kids. Olivia hopes to help other children understand that Asperger’s Syndrome does not define a person, but rather explains a very special part of themselves.
