Try and find out how many people there are on the autism spectrum and you are met with three facts. Firstly nobody knows. Second, it affects boys much more than girls. And third, it is far more common than originally thought. As the numbers change, so too does our understanding, leading us away from the term ‘autistic’, towards a wider understanding of a range of issues along the ‘autism spectrum’. Written by a professional with many years experience of not only helping young people but supporting their families too, this simple yet much overdue book demonstrates that seeing the world through the eyes of someone who is on this spectrum will lead to far better learning outcomes both for the teacher and for the child.
