We’ve talked about apps and resources before, but let’s go old school today and talk about…books! You remember those, right? There are so many out there, it can be hard to know what the best options are — especially when you’re looking for books about autism.
Luckily in this article, Today’s Parent does that legwork for us by amassing a list of 17 great books focused on the spectrum. There are several ends of the book-reading spectrum being met in this list as well.
- Different Like Me: My Book of Autism Heroes – illustrated in color and kid-friendly language; meant for kids ages 8-12
- House Rules by Jodi Picoult – fiction; adults.
- Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s by John Elder Robison – nonfiction; adults.
Whether you’re looking for lighter reading, children’s books, or even research-based nonfiction, there’s likely to be something on this list for you. Give it a look-see then go ahead and update your family’s library!
