In My Friend Has Autism, beginning readers are introduced to different characters who have autism, how autism may affect their actions, and how we can be good friends to people who have autism. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text engage young readers as they discover how to be empathetic and include all kinds of friends. A diagram shows different tools that help children with autism, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about being a good friend online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. My Friend Has Autism also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
