I Have Autism is a children’s book to help teachers and parents explain autism to a young child. The main character, Alex, has autism. He talks about how autism affects his behaviour and other aspects of his life. The inspiring story of Alex can improve the self-esteem of any child with autism and help explain why he/she is different.
The Resource Guide includes a definition of autism, practical strategies for coping at home and at school, a reference list of books and organisations, and suggestions for talking to the child’s siblings and peers about autism. The Resource Guide also contains a reproducible I Have Autism book that the child can personalise plus suggestions for adding text and pictures to the book. Personalising an "I Have Autism" book helps the child with autism to understand his world better, to improve his/her social skills, and manage his/her behaviour.
