What Is The Autism Acceptance Book? (How it Works..)
Take a WALK in Someone Else's Shoes
What is AUTISM?
YOU and YOUR FRIENDS with Autism
GROUP Activities/ EXPRESS Yourself
In a child-friendly way, the author describes how all people are different from one another and how great it feels to be accepted and included by others. The next section describes what it may be like to have autism and encourages kids to think about what things might be harder or easier for you if you had autism. Then, it discusses ways to be a friend to someone with autism and how to raise awareness by educating other friends and even donating to an autism organization. The pages are extremely colorful and engaging. This would be a great resource for peer mentors in schools or as part of a lesson plan for students, especially during Autism Awareness month.
I found the Autism Acceptance book at Barnes & Noble but you can also get both of these resources online at Amazon.com
