Psychology
This is a very unusual way to look at Autism through the life and the eyes of a cat.
The Cat Dasha is a very intelligent cat, and sees things and is able to put across the very strangeness of what it is like to live with two humans who are normal and two who have two different variations of Autism.

This is a very unusual way to look at Autism through the life and the eyes of a cat.

The Cat Dasha is a very intelligent cat, and sees things and is able to put across the very strangeness of what it is like to live with two humans who are normal and two who have two different variations of Autism.

Cats are very astute animals and the way this book has been written explains autism in such a fun but especially simple way. Dasha talks about reading facial expressions and relates it to the way she feels about her humans.

Dasha talks about purring, and pummeling which are two ways a cat expresses pleasure, but then goes on to describe how the son in the family can not differentiate between happy, sad, anger and frustration. How autism is so different to other conditions so that some have to touch everything to understand whether it is a good or a bad feeling that they get. Some children have to smell everything that they are near to see if it gives off a good or bad smell and whether they like it.

A beautifully intuitive book on the subject of Autism that non professionals will laugh at and understand and the professionals will also chuckle at the way the cat decerns what he is seeing.

Well done to T.O. Daria for such a perspective and a brilliant story on the subjects of Autism and Asperger’s syndrome.
