We did well showering for a while. I think it needs to be read about once a month as a reminder. However the habit is getting better with him.

Great book for children who are victim of bullying, who have reasonable reading skill. A bit disappointed that it didn't specifically tell the children to walk away from the bullying. Other than that, I like the pictures and the story.

I feel that this book has a strong religious flavour and strong gender roles that would not be appropriate for many NZ families

Kevin thinks ...about outer space, confusing expressions and the perfectly logical world of Asperger syndrome by Watts, Gail

Publication: . [28] pages 22 cm

A good book for explaining Asperger type thinking, but for neurotypicals, not for ASD kids themselves. It makes the assumption that you understand non-literal phrases etc. But good to read to older primary age classmates.

An indepth book I'll revisit. A different way of understanding the child's perspective and being more accepting. I appreciated the positivity of this book and it addressing the hard stuff like meltdowns, aggression and violence etc.
