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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it opens your mind to the possibilities for everyone with learning difficulties if they get the right support from people who care and do not put limits on what they could, should, & will be able to achieve in life. An easy enjoyable read.
