A wonderful series of social skills activity books for Autistic kids written by an Autistic Teacher. It’s full of positive messages and activities to help kids aged 4 + navigate the non-autistic social world, while maintaining a positive self identity.
Here’s what Neuropsychologist, Dr. Catherine Crompton says about our books:
“The Konnect series are the first activity books to help neurodiverse young people embrace and harness their individual ways of communicating. The activities allow children to find their own ways to express themselves, and learn more about themselves and others. They support children to develop the skills to communicate what they think and how they feel in diverse ways. They encourage children to build confidence and relationships in a way that works with them, using their diverse strengths. It’s so important to have materials created by neurodivergent members of the community, and Evaleen has combined her experiences as an autistic person with her expertise in speech and drama to create truly unique and valuable resources.”
Dr. Catherine Crompton is a research neuropsychologist at The Patrick Wild Centre, University of Edinburgh. Her current research explores neurodiverse social interaction, and how autism-specific social behaviours faciltate interactions between Autistic peers. Her research re-conceptualises social intelligence within a neurodiversity framework, challenging the notion that there is only one legitimate form of social intelligence.
