Summary: "Many of the behaviours demonstrated by autistic people are commonly described as being 'challenging'. The Girl with the Curly Hair explores what 'challenging' really means and finds out that it commonly means being 'difficult', 'naughty' or other negative descriptions. In this book she considers whether a more accurate description of 'challenging' might be 'aty[ical'. The feels that sometimes behaviours neurotypical people are not used to can be incorrectly perceived as challenging. She hopes this book will help neurotypical people better understand the autistic person's thoughts that lead to their behaviour. Is that person then seen in a different, more positive light?" - BOOK JACKET
