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 came out a few days ago and is based on my positive experiences of informing more than 250 children aged 6 to 18 about their autism. It is available from JKP.com
Congratulations on the book! Although TBH I feel like I really want to hear from other people's actual experiences just now...
