Understanding Autism in the 21st Century - Ilona Roth

The Reason I jump - Naoki Higashida & David Mitchell

Both books are just...wow! They will make you laugh, cry & smile knowingly in equal measure but we've found them so useful.

If you've got lots more questions in your head than you've been given answers to then I highly recommend you get yourself these 2 gems from amazon.

I loved The Reason I Jumped, I haven't read the other one but I'll check it out, thanks.

I've got this one by Ilona Roth which looks really good but I haven't read it yet, it's the set text for an OU course on Autism.

Oops, yes, that's the one PolterGoose.

The book is titled 'The Autism Spectrum in the 21st Century'
The OU course is 'Understanding Autism in the 21st Century'.

I recommend both but the book is fantastically informative on it's own.

'The Reason I jump' is 'un-put-downable'... prepare for wanting to read it long into the night!
