11 Books for Kids on the Autism Spectrum
We teamed up with Autism Speaks to bring you a list of our favorite children’s books for kids with autism.
With 1 in 50 school aged kids diagnosed with autism, there’s a clear need for quality books for children across the spectrum. Fortunately, they're out there.
To get insight on what to keep an eye out for, Parenting.com spoke with Lisa Goring, vice president of Family Services at Autism Speaks.
“When looking for books for kids on the spectrum it is important to keep the messaging positive and provide strong examples about the unique skills of those with autism," said Goring, mother of two children, one of whom has autism.
“A good book about autism should provide specific examples of the child’s strengths as well their challenges.”
With that in mind, here’s our list of the best books for kids with autism, with input from Goring. Happy reading!
