Written from the perspective of an eight-year-old child, The Boy with a Different Brain offers readers a beautifully honest and uncensored account of exactly what it feels like to be friends with a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
– Creating Awareness and Acceptance of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Through descriptions of everyday situations and some of the more common ASD quirks, the narrator seeks to break down the stigma associated with ASD and build upon their friend’s very unique set of strengths, interests and abilities.
Supported by a wonderfully disarming series of hand-drawn illustrations by Victorian Year 6 student Skye McBain, The Boy with a Different Brain is an engaging mix of storybook fact and age-appropriate fictitious humour.
This book is a definite must for parents, carers, individuals and schools looking to help reduce the number of ASD children diagnosed annually with depression and anxiety as a direct result of being bullied at school.
Ages: 5-8 (Lower Primary), Ages: 8-10 (Middle Primary)
