A two-sided book with two covers, a book about Autism in the most unconventional sense. This book is NOT about the Autistic child per se. It focuses on the sibling of the Autistic child, the so-called “normal” child, who sees the world from a different perspective. The parents section provides straight talk and deals honestly with the effect their Autistic child is having on their other child, the normal one.
Flip the book over and it becomes a child’s book with beautiful illustrations that support the realistic subject matter. The thoughts, feelings and fears of the sibling are expressed. The book becomes a vehicle for acceptance through affirmations that replace negative thoughts with positive, reinforcing statements. Children’s hospitals and pediatricians’ offices are using the book as an informative, therapeutic and healing guide for families.
