This review is from: Ian's Walk: A Story about Autism (Paperback)
Although this book was written for a younger audience than I first anticipated, I still very much enjoyed reading it and could really identify with the characteristics of the autistic boy portrayed. My main purpose for buying this book was to help my daughter (aged 3) see that her twin brother was not unique in the disability he has. Even though she was very young she was still able to 'see' her brother within the story and the well illustrated book made it easy for me to talk more about how her brother was the same as Ian.
I will be using this book again and again as my children grow and have even recommended it to others in our autistic support group who have siblings as it is very real in how it portrays the concerns, difficulties and challenges faced by siblings of autistic children.
I particularly enjoyed the way the book focussed on the sensory element of autism rather that the typical triad of impairments most other books focus on.
If you are a parent of an autistic child facing the questions and embarrassments often found in your child's siblings this book may just help you discuss this difficult area in a non conflicting manner.
