A good book is Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew by Veronica Zysk

1. I am a whole child

2. My senses are out of sync

4.  I am a concrete thinker; I interpret language literally.

5.  Listen to all the ways I’m trying to communicate

6. Picture this.  I am visually oriented

7.  Focus and build on what I can do rather than what I can’t

8.  Help me with social interactions

9. Identify what triggers my meltdowns.

10.  Love me unconditionally.
