Can Dannie make the right decisions with your help? ‘Dannie’s Dilemmas’ is a series of books designed to show the difficulties that children with Asperger’s Syndrome face on a daily basis. The books are an interactive way for readers to get involved with Dannie’s Dilemmas. The reader has the ability to choose the way the stories end. This makes them unique in their own way. Dannie is an eleven year old Asperger’s child, she is smart, friendly and very helpful, but due to the Aspergers she finds it difficult to assess situations, work out what people think and really mean, make daily choices and understand emotions and sayings. Like most Asperger’s children Dannie does find herself in trouble quite a few times for taking people literally, especially with idioms, ‘Dannie’s Dilemmas’ tries to explain as many idioms as possible. Seeing life through Dannie’s eyes shows us all how emotionally difficult it is for Aspergers children to understand the world that we take for granted every day. In ‘The Shopping Trip’Dannie reveals her thoughts on going shopping for a new toy, while encountering choices, literal thinking and memorising. Dannie reveals in her own words how challenging she finds going shopping for a new toy, from preparing to leave, through to waiting her turn and finally the dilemma of choices, which the reader will decide.
