Buster and the Amazing Daisy: Adventures with Asperger
"Daisy White was not crazy. Clumsy maybe, but definitely not crazy. In this exciting adventure story, Daisy, who has autism, defeats her bullies and overcomes her fears with the help of Buster, a very special rabbit. All is going well until a terrible fate threatens Daisy's new friend Cody. Will Daisy be able to gather her courage and special talents to save him?
Buster and the Amazing Daisy is not
just a humorous and engaging story. It will also give its readers an insight
into the hopes and dreams, as well as the fears and frustrations, of many
children with autism."
Finding Ben: A mother's journey through the maze
From the publisher:
Searchingly honest and beautifully written, FINDING BEN is a remarkable story of a brilliant young boy’s inability to carry on reciprocal conversations, make eye contact, or distinguish between truth and fantasy. It is also the heart-rending account of a mother’s struggle to understand her child and to overcome the guilt she felt for not fully accepting him. Believing that the world would look at Ben and see her own failure, Barbara vacillated for years between frustration, despair, resentment, and shame.
Finding Ben has two stories to tell.
It provides a fascinating look at the lonely and frightening world of the
Aspergers Syndrome child; it is also a candid first-person account of parental
disappointment, one that will have meaning for all parents, whether their
children have “special needs” or not.
