Aims of the series:

 

Sharing experience

Sometimes feeling a bit different can make you feel very lonely. Reading about someone who faces similar challenges to you makes you realise that you are not alone. The books embrace the good things about difference, the difficulties that it can bring, and tactics for making life easier.

 

Encouraging empathy

Children who don’t have the same experience can learn more about their friends and classmates, and why they may approach the world in a different way. They can learn from each other and may find strategies that help them, too.

 

Embracing diversity

Being different can be an advantage as well as a challenge. As Greta Thunberg says “Asperger is not a disease, it’s a gift.” Seeing the world through each other’s eyes enriches our experience. Highlighting strengths as well as acknowledging challenges is important. Together we are stronger.
