We’ve got two boys. My stepson, A, is 11 and autistic (he’s very intelligent, pretty high functioning, but his only language is a jumble of repetitive quotes from movies and random stuff he overhears) and my younger son, M, is four. M has just started to question why A isn’t “like his friend’s big brother.” When M asked “Why won’t A play with me? Does he not like me?” it struck us that we really didn’t know how to explain autism in a way that a four-year-old would understand. I’d love some advice — anyone know any good kids books or resources that would help? — Gemma
Do you have any words of advice or know of a book or two that can help Gemma’s situation?
