“What matters most is what we think and feel about ourselves. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship or friendship you will ever have.”  – Evaleen Whelton (author)

How do I tell my child they are Autistic?

The above question is commonly asked of the author Evaleen so she wanted to create a workbook or space for children aged 9 to 15 or thereabouts to explore their identity. Instead of telling kids and teens what Neuodivergence means to them, she wanted to create a book that gives young Neurodivergent folks space to explore that for themselves while giving an alternative to the negative medical model that pathologises very human differences. This book is not just for Autistic kids and teens but for kids who are in anyway Neurodivergent.

Is it all writing?

No – spaces have been left by the author for sentences and drawings but that’s just for people who like to write and draw so it’s important that other ways of thinking and communicating are supported throughout this book. It might happen that some parts are filled in, other parts are left blank and other parts are explored through song, art or dance. It doesn’t really matter how sections are explored, it matters that they are explored in ways that suit the child or teen using this book.
