Experiencing Autism Spectrum Disorder presents unique challenges as well as unique strengths. We explore the different levels of sensory experience across the spectrum as well as the mental and emotional impact of being labeled as different. 


What might it feel like to have a sensory disorder? How can we relate to our friends who are experiencing these challenges? This is a book for young people to better relate to and appreciate their friends with Autism Spectrum Disorder. 


The Early Years are the perfect time to teach all children about appropriate social behaviours and various ways to communicate. The Autism Spectrum Disorder shared reading book provides teachers with an informative and appropriate text for discussing behaviours and responses with children and can be used for parent education as well to promote understanding, inclusion, and respect for differences.


Autism Spectrum Disorder enables teachers to explore difference and diversity through clear explanations and photographs. Children are provided with a model of the behaviour someone with autism may display along with strategies for understanding and managing behaviour. Strengths and certain abilities those with autism may also display are also highlighted. The text and photographs provide a realistic, non-confronting, and supportive view of the behaviours associated with autism spectrum disorder for those children and families experiencing it, and for those parents and children who may not have yet encountered someone on the spectrum.
