‘This book will help inspire kids who are different and shows them that they too can succeed.'– Temple Grandin, Associate Professor of Animal Science, Colorado State University, and author of Animals in Translation‘…this is a great confidence booster for children with a ‘high functioning' Autistic Spectrum Disorder, an opportunity for them to show off, and an enjoyable read for everyone, to boot!'– Education OtherwiseDo you ever wonder what the world would be like if everyone had autism? If flapping your hands and repeating every word were the rule, chess was more popular than football, and weather reports were the only programme on TV? Join us on a journey to this alternative reality, where being different is ordinary, and being ‘typical' is unheard of.Autistic Planet describes a place where all trains run on time, gyms have beds and trampolines, people wear shades by day and earmuffs at night, and popcorn and crisps are the only things people eat. Full of colour illustrations and written in child-friendly rhyme, this book will greatly entertain children, particularly those with autism, their parents, teachers, carers and siblings.
