Books for our libraries
This might be most true for children on the autism spectrum. Things like relating to others, understanding emotions, and making and keeping friends are common challenges faced by children with autism. Reading about autistic characters can act as an outlet and a learning tool to discovering one’s own place in the world.
While some of these books are written specifically for children on the autism spectrum, others are aimed towards siblings and friends. Regardless of the specific audience, children’s books about the autism spectrum provide a level of comfort and understanding that can only be achieved through a good story.
Jeni met with Karin Bowden, our school librarian, to hand over the books - a wonderful resource for both our KS1 and KS2 libraries.
