We all know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. But what you may not know is that this familiar fairytale can also help us understand autism spectrum disorder.
As a mother of a child with ASD, Amy struggled to find materials to share with her son’s cousins and peers on the complexities of ASD, what to expect, and how to interact and have fun with a person on the spectrum.
So, she created her own!
Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder is a retelling of a beloved classic. In this unique version, Goldilocks exhibits many of the characteristics of a child with autism, such as sensory sensitivities and challenges in understanding social norms.
As an added bonus, this one-of-a-kind story includes an ASD glossary of terms as well as discussion questions. It is perfect for libraries, classrooms, families of children with autism, or readers of all ages who want to learn more about ASD.
While every person’s autism presents differently, Goldilocks’ autism can help the reader understand the autism of someone they know a little better.
