This carefully written and explicitly illustrated book provides an explanation of menopause for people with autism and special education needs and disabilities (SEND). It helps readers to understand the physical processes and symptoms of menopause, as well as important practical information, such as how to cope with the emotional and hormonal changes in menopause, complementary therapies and tips on how to effectively communicate your experiences to support networks and professionals such as, doctors and therapists.
Menopause is rarely recognised or addressed with people who have autism, special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) yet it has a significant impact on their daily living. This book frankly explains what constitutes menopause, that it is part of the life course and can be actively managed. As part of the ‘Healthy Loving, Healthy Living’ series, this book is written in gender neutral and inclusive language.
