|aThe Autism Acceptance Book is an activity book, a conversation-starter, and an educational tool that engages children in learning to embrace people's differences and treat others with respect, compassion and kindness. It helps children see that we are all different from each other and we all like to be understood and accepted. It teaches children about autism; helps them imagine how things might feel for those with autism and lets them think of ways to be understanding and accepting to people with autism. Ideal for classrooms and group setting, this book should be shared with every child as it will help them learn important life lessons and help soften the stigma of autism and other special needs.
