I know we aren't supposed to promote books on this site, but I recently ordered this book from amazon about autism.
It is written by a Japanese boy, and tells in his own words how it feels to be autistic.
I found this book inspiring in the bravery of this boy in his every day life.
It has helped me to understand my grandson, and in many ways to understand how we all take so much for granted.
One of the things he says is- 'True compassion is about not bruising the other person's self -respect. That's what I think anyway'
How perceptive of such a young autistic person to understand that.
We can learn so much in the most unexpected places, and from the most unexpected people.
