Happy Thursday everyone!!
In honor of Autism Awareness month, I pulled these books off the shelves & wanted to share them with you guys!
During the month of April last year, I sent out a schedule of days and times for teachers to sign up to have one of our special education staff come into their classroom and read their students a story and give them a little information/answer any questions about autism. These were some of the awesome books I found online that help give elementary students a good idea of what autism “is” and why some of their classmates might flap, make “strange” noises, or any of the other quirks our little kiddos might display.
Here are the books if you’d like to order them for your school!
My Brother Charlie by Holly Robinson Peete
Ian’s Walk by Laurie Lears
Looking After Louis by Lesley Ely
In Jesse’s Shoes by Beverly Lewis
Rules by Cynthia Lord (this is a great chapter book for your 4th or 5th graders!)
Hope y’all have a wonderful Friday!
