Also, my favorite line? "I think autism is a fad!" ... "I wish ignorance was a fad."
1. This book is short enough that every family member could read it in ten minutes, we just passed it around.
2. This book affirmed my son and made him feel validated and as if he had other people he could relate to. This is not something I can do myself, this is something I look for the community to provide.
3. I bought a 2nd copy for his teacher. It is simple and it will help him advocate for himself. I expect him to advocate for himself and not get a free pass because he has autism.
4. This book is inexpensive enough that I can buy one for his teacher at the beginning of each school year.
5. As a parent, this is the best, most useful book I have ever read about autism. I am a school librarian with a passion for reading, as a parent of an autistic child I read daily for at least an hour on this topic. The other incredibly useful site I have found is Karla's ASD page, a public page or a page you can follow on Facebook. My son is in a mainstream class, manages his sensory issues, is educated about his ASD neurology and the neurology of NT people which is a huge aid in preventing frustration and allowing him a full life.
6. My son found the graphic format and light text extremely appealing.
I look forward to more from this author.
Finally, I am not autistic, so I asked my son to tell me 2 things he liked about the book.
Brady said his favorite part of the book was "I think the best way to help autistic people is to help them be happy and useful", He thought it was ridiculous that someone would say someone with autism would not understand autism," he says someone who is Autistic understands autism the best because they experience it, it is actually a part of them.
