By Jude Welton; Illustrated by Jane Telford
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Meet Adam - a young boy with AS. Adam invites young readers to learnabout AS from his perspective. He helps children understand thedifficulties faced by a child with AS - he tells them what AS is, whatit feels like to have AS and how they can help children with AS byunderstanding their differences and appreciating their many talents.This illustrated book is ideally suited for boys and girls between 7and 15 years old and also serves as an excellent starting point forfamily and classroom discussions.
Jude Welton gives the young child with Asperger's the power of his own voice in explaining himself to his friends. Her calm and deceptively simple approach is complemented by Jane Telford's reassuringly everyday pictures. Parents have needed this book for a very long time.
