Hi, we recently had an Asperger's Syndrome diagnosis for my four year old. He is very self aware about his behaviour. We haven't told him about his diagnosis properly. I bought a picture book about Asperger's and he identifies with the boy in it. He starts school in September and I am wondering how and when we should tell him properly about his autism. Has anyone any suggestions or experiences which they can share. I have looked at other threads but they all appear to be about older children.
My book on how to tell children and young people about their autism diagnosis is being published on 18th January www.jkp.com/.../all-about-me-2.html
£25 is cheap when you think how much training and hard work goes into understanding the subject,and then putting such a book together, and all children are worth so much more than money. In an idealistic world it would be free,
