• Celebrate National Autism Awareness during April •
An entire month devoted to raising awareness of autism and neurodiversity!
You may be wondering what is neurodiversity?
According to Harvard Health Publishing Medical School,
“Neurodiversity describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways; there is no one “right” way of thinking, learning, and behaving, and differences are not viewed as deficits. The word neurodiversity refers to the diversity of all people, but it is often used in the context of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as well as other neurological or developmental conditions such as ADHD or learning disabilities.”
What better way to raise awareness and educate our children on autism and neurodiversity than with books? That being said, I’ve scoured the web looking for the best children’s book list on autism awareness and created this one-stop post for you right here on KidLit TV.
