World Autism Awareness Week

This is World Autism Awareness Week, and the children are learning more about ASD in class through Autism is my Superpower by Cecily M. Forde. This book is about an amazing little boy named Jacob and his journey with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Jacob shares how he turns his autism into his superpower.


Talking to your child about autism is something you might also wish to do this week. If your child has a classmate, friend or relative with autism, it can be difficult for them to understand exactly what this means; however, we have collected some ideas for starting a conversation about ASD.
