This is a book that will never become irrelevant or "outdated." Every child who uses it also becomes its co-author. Each chapter is divided in two parts:

  • The first part, the Workbook, is for the child to complete, by writing or highlighting "What is True for Me" in lists of simple statements.
  • The second part, "For Parents and Teachers", contains helpful tips/information for the adult who guides him through the exercises.

The book will provide insight into your child's mind, and make him/her more self aware, learning what autism means in relation to crucial areas of his/her life: friendships, fears, abilities, and much more.

"This book offers another approach to furthering the understanding of autism … encouraging autistic children to learn more about themselves and guiding them through a journey of self discovery. It is a valuable resource for awareness and … self esteem! Such a book could have been very helpful to me and my family when I was a child."
- Dave Spicer, diagnosed at age 46

"This is information that every kid with autism should have."
- Thomas Johnson, 10 years old
