Description

This social skills activity book is the first of its kind, written for Autistic kids by an Autistic teacher. This is the first in a series of 3 activity books designed to help kids  explore how we communicate and how others communicate. It is suitable for kids aged 4 onwards.

It offers ways to self advocate. Unlike most social skills books written by people who are not Autistic and do not understand Autistic communication, this book does not encourage children to mimic or copy communication which is not natural to us.

Many social skills program unfortunately encourage children to mask , which in turn leads to poor mental health. This book is a celebration of our way of communicating and an introduction to non-autistic communication. It encourages positive identity and self confidence. It is the result of 43 years of living as an Autistic in a predominantly non-autistic world, 20 years of teaching  and of 6 years of providing ‘social skills’ courses for children and training for parents and professionals.
