Autism Heroes! There is a Book for That!

Autism Heroes! There is a Book for That!

We have done many sessions of peer awareness in our schools to help typical peers better understand their classmates with autism. It is sometimes challenging to find good examples of those people throughout our history who not only find the benefits of being on the autism spectrum, but then use that special wiring to achieve amazing things in the world.

I’ve discovered a children’s book for the elementary student who would enjoy reading about some heroes among us!

Take a look!

Other books on this topic include:

Autism All-Stars: How we Use Our Autism an Asperger Traits to Shine in Life by Josie Santomauro

Life, Animated:  A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism by Ron Suskind

A movie I highly recommend is:  Temple Grandin starring Claire Danes.

This is a wonderful true story about the life, challenges and successes of Temple Grandin who has autism.  She has been able to use her autism to revolutionize the cattle industry.  She has written books, done videos and speaks about autism around the world. A truly inspiring woman!!!

Enjoy!  If you have any other book or movie titles, please share!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
