My Friend with Autism
The new edition of My Friend with Autism is not only printed in colour, which makes it entirely different from an adult perspective because it’s far more appealing and sophisticated (e.g. bright colours that keep a child’s attention) compared to the old My Friend with Autism, it also has a CD so a parent or teacher can print off the pages for a child to colour.
In effect, you get a colouring book and a children’s reading book all in one edition! The parent notes at the end are also better “indexed” so people can more easily read them, and there is a “10 Quick Strategies for Helping A Child with Autism” section at the end of the book
My Friend with Autism is the exceptional result of parent Beverly Bishop’s determination to educate her son’s classmates about autism, thus helping her son fit in at school. A peer narrator explains that his friend with autism is good at some things and not so good at others—just like everyone else! In an informative, positive tone, he addresses issues such as:
- Sensory Sensitivity
- Communication Differences
- Unique Ways of Playing
- Insistence on Routine
At the end of the book are Page-by-Page Notes for Adults, which supplement the text with facts and explanations to further educate teachers and classmates’ parents.
The FREE companion CD contains a printable colouring page for every page of the book, including the Page-by-Page Notes for Adults and other features such as:
- 18 Signs and Symptoms of an Autism Spectrum Disorder
- 10 Quick Strategies for Helping a Child with Autism
- Recommended Reading
