about

IMPROVED & UPDATED! Back in 2010, author Teresa DeMars went looking for a children's picture book to explain autism to her son. When she couldn’t find one that fit the characteristics of his autism, she wrote and illustrated ASD and Me. Written for kids diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS, or autism, parents will appreciate the way this heartwarming children's picture book will help them explain Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to their child on the spectrum. ASD and Me is written from the point of view of Eli, a seven-year-old boy who has ASD. Through the story, Eli explains how he was diagnosed, and how ASD affects the way he thinks and interprets the world around him. He also talks about some of the social and life skills he has learned that help him fit in with others. The story concludes with some of the interests and activities Eli shares with other children. ASD and Me is a great book to help introduce the subject of autism to siblings, classmates, extended family and to those on the spectrum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read High functioning ASD is so difficult to get diagnosed and for others to understand. I have 1 diagnosed and 2 others not diagnosed yet. This book is amazing at helping others to understand the diagnosis instead of only expecting a stereotypical for of ASD. Awareness of all the differences is great. A must read for everyone.
