About the Author

Abi Rawlins is an Art Psychotherapist, currently working in a medium secure forensic service. Abi has vast experience working with adults who have autism in community settings and has previously taught children with autism at a specialist ABA school in Wandsworth. Having worked for Mind in Croydon, supporting families affected by mental health issues, she was able to work with families who were living with autism and struggling to access appropriate support. Abi's personal relationship with temporal lobe epilepsy and resulting traits of autism as a child have made her particularly passionate about raising awareness in schools. With Catherine Frizzell, she co-founded Achieving with Autism, a social enterprise that raises awareness of autism in mainstream schools.

Reviews

[In] this beautifully produced book, we have many answers to questions that children have often asked... The first two sections are aimed mostly at parents, teachers and interested adults... By section three, How Can I Be a Good Friends? We are into the questions that primary children often ask... The fourth section in a similar format is What Is It Like To Live With Autism... Serious and easily understood, the book also has humour, particularly in the illustrations, and there is much here to enjoy as well as learn. There is emphasis on kindness and understanding and the fact that autistic people are just different and have their own strengths and abilities. -- Healthy Books * healthybooks.org.uk * If only this book was available a few years ago when I worked in mainstream schools with children on the spectrum. Informative and easy to understand for young children without any jargon. Great for helping young children understand a topic not often talked about positively in mainstream schools and for helping them understand why their friend/classmate may behave differently. Long overdue. -- Gill D Ansell, author of Working with Asperger Syndrome in the Classroom This is not just a great resource but a great read. The number of autistic pupils is going up and all teachers, governors, support staff, parents and especially fellow pupils need to understand autism. This book will really help autism awareness not just in schools but the wider neurotypical population so everyone can see that autistic people are different not broken and celebrate the autistic mind for what it is, one of the greatest gifts on earth. -- Counsellor Andrew Rendle, Ashburton Ward - London Borough of Croydon, Champion for Autism
