Friendly Books Written for Autistic Children

Written specifically for their special brains.

Neurotypical persons tends to assume that the activities, relationships, and books that people with autism enjoy will be the same.

Nowhere is this truer than when talking about children with autism. Their young minds process reality in a very different way than the average youngling. What their more neurotypical peers enjoy hardly appeals to them.

With this in mind, several experts on childhood autism came together to develop books written to appeal to their sensibilities and stimulate their learning in a way that wholly appeals to their cognitive peculiarities to great success. Have the special kids learn the right way with these books.

#2 Sammy Smart Guy

Sammy Smart Guy
I recommend the children’s book “Sammy Smart Guy” by my brother, Polyvios Christoforos. He is on the autism spectrum himself and used a fictional character to share some of his life experiences with autism, and how he became a successful artist. It’s an inspirational and honest kid friendly story.

#5 Penguin Says “Please” by Michael Dahl

Penguin Says
Penguin Says Please , and start imitating the gestures and sounds of the book. That happened every time I went to his home. Surprisingly, the book improved his communication skills greatly so I began using it for therapy. By the time the therapy ended, a couple of months later, the child could say a few words. That’s why I recommend that book as my first option.
