ASD and Me: Learning About High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder
Written for kids diagnosed with Aspergers, PPD-NOS, or autism, parents will appreciate the way this heartwarming children's picture book will help them explain high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to their child on the spectrum. ASD and Me is written from the point of view of Eli, a seven-year-old boy who has high functioning ASD. Through the story, Eli explains how he was diagnosed, and how ASD affects the way he thinks and interprets the world around him. He also talks about some of the social and life skills he has learned that help him fit in with others. The story concludes with some of the interests and activities Eli shares with other children. ASD and Me is a great book to share with siblings and classmates. A letter to parents section at the end of the book offers detailed information about the symptoms of high functioning ASD, which would be helpful in explaining the disorder to extended family and friends.
