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.

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.
