Book Review: Children's Book about Asperger's
Recently I ordered this book for all the elementary school counselors in my district. This is a wonderful story about a boy, Armond, who attends a friend's birthday party, which is a regular rite of passage for children, except he has Asperger's. The story then follows Armond through the day and how he celebrates the party a little differently from the other children.
This is a wonderful book to share with students who may have a classmate or sibling with Asperger's. You could do this as a stand alone lesson on differences or add it to the end of the another at the request of a teacher.
Enjoy and be extraordinary!
