Autism

A Friend Like Simon

When an autistic child joins a mainstream school, many children can find it difficult to understand and cope with a student that is somewhat different to them. The story encourages other children to be mindful and patient of the differences that exist and to also appreciate the positive contribution that an autistic child can make to the group.
