Books About Autism for 6yr Old

Wed 5 Jul 2017 7:31am

I'm looking for books that explain autism to autistic children. My son is six years old. Any recommendations?

Also resources for siblings will be useful too (although his brother is only three so not actively looking in to this yet).

Video links/recommendations would also be welcome. 

Thanks x

Challenging behaviour

Sat 8 Apr 2017 1:31pm


It has been a really long time since I've been on the site. I have come a very long way, and now have a paid job helping an 8 year old girl who almost certainly has autism, but the professionals around her are not keen on diagnosis as they see it as labelling.

I think diagnosis would be helpful, she is in a mainstream school and it would really help to explain some of her behaviours and difficulties to her classmates, at the very least. I have accepted this is unlikely to happen for the time being.

Pervasive Development Disorder (PDD) not specified - information

Wed 15 Mar 2017 5:59pm

Hello, my son was diagnosed 2 years ago in France as being PDD not specific.  He has regular sessions of psychomotricity and we see a pedopsychatrist about 2 to 3 times a year, he has someone to help him in the classroom and in general he is making progress above all with his social skills.  However there is so much that my husband and I do not understand, firstly the diagnostic, we have understood that he is basically in the spectrum of autism and that he is affected lightly.
