To improve communication and understanding between people with Asperger's Syndrome and their Neurotypical loved ones. ‘the curly hair project’ uses a range of tools including: • An interactive Facebook page which people love and find really helpful • Friendly discussions about everyday scenarios • Simple, engaging comic strip cartoons • Electronic books available for download • Printed books by author Alis Rowe (a 25 year old girl with Asperger’s Syndrome) aka The Girl with the Curly Hair

We did it
On 3rd December 2013 we successfully raised £4,012 with 81 supporters in 35 days

'The curly hair project' uses a range of tools with one universal aim, which is to help the AS (person with Asperger's Syndrome) and the NT (Neurotypical) communicate with each other in their overlapping worlds.

What will the money raised be used for?

  • Book printing services to print two books which are due for launch by the end of 2013
  • Posters need to be printed and put up nationally to raise awareness of Asperger's Syndrome
  • Talks and mentoring to schools and healthcare professionals, as requested

The curly hair project has been a raving success so far, backed up by lots and lots of testimonials and positive feedback from parents, teachers, healthcare professionals, as well as teenagers and adults with Asperger's Syndrome.

Asperger's Syndrome is currently NOT understood very well. It is often represented inaccurately. The aim of the curly hair project is to present and deliver educative, enjoyable, accessible, accurate information to people about what it's really like to live with Asperger's Syndrome.
