Summary

The aim of this big book is to educate the children in the classroom about Asperger’s syndrome. The specific goals for the children are to: Understand what Asperger’s Syndrome means and how it affects them; Accept and then celebrate differences in each other; Be a friend and support the child with Asperger’s. Included with the big book is an A4 sized, spiral bound Guide on why, how and when to use the big book in classrooms. Also included is a class pack of 30 cardboard sunglasses for a “Five Senses” activity. The book is designed so that it can be reused year after year for newly enrolled children with Asperger's Syndrome. There is a male version and a separate female version available (each sold separately). Once you receive the big book, you will see how it can be personalised for each child with Asperger’s. There are pages explaining every behaviour associated with Asperger’s. Simply pull out the pages that do not belong to your child and leave in the pages that do. (from website)
