My Autism Book A Child's Guide to their Autism Spectrum Diagnosis is a beautifully illustrated picture book that helps parents to explain an autism diagnosis to their child in a sensitive, positive and truthful way.
When a child is diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), parents often feel overwhelmed and uncertain about how to explain the diagnosis to their child. This book is designed to be read with the child as a simple introduction to their diagnosis.
Written by a doctor and a children's author, the book is tailored specifically to the needs and experiences of the child with ASD aged 5 and up.
It explains what an autism diagnosis means and encourages an exploration of the child's strengths and differences using clear language that speaks directly to the child. The colorful pictures throughout show how the world looks from the child's perspective and the book ends with a summary checklist to encourage the child to record and discuss how autism affects them. (Softcopy: 32 pages.)
