Sometimes beautiful books need a bit of a plug and this is one of them…
A useful and heartfelt tool for any parent of an autistic child, mum and Author Kaira says;
A short, simple explanation of autism for young children, to help them understand their autistic sibling. I originally made this book as I was struggling to find an age appropriate explanation of autism for my youngest son Leon who was just about to turn three years old and was starting to have questions about his brother. Sidney is autistic, non-verbal and has learning disabilities. Leon was starting to notice that his brother behaved differently from himself and other children, and we needed to find a way of explaining why we do things a certain way with Sidney but have different expectations from Leon, in terms a preschool aged child can understand. You can use this book to talk to your children about how they are similar, how they differ, how they behave, and how autism affects them. There is a section at the back that’s all about you.
This book also contains beautiful illustrations and is an accompaniment to Kiara’s live blog;
