Does your child understand that children with classic autism are just children who want friends?
A Is for Autism, F Is for Friend: A Kid's Book for
Making Friends with a Child Who Has Autism provides an inside look at
the life of Chelsea, a young girl who has classic autism. In this book,
Chelsea walks us through her day, including trips to the playground and
park, and explains that although she sees other kids playing and wants
to join them, social interaction can be tricky for her. In sharing some
of her strengths and challenges, Chelsea compares them with issues that
all kids face, highlighting the many things she and her schoolmates have
in common. One of the goals of this book to is help typical children
understand that, "Hey, I experience that, too!" A Is for Autism, F Is
for Friend provides an enjoyable, discussion-oriented format for
teaching youth about autism.
