Explaining autism to children can be a difficult task. This heart-warming portrayal of an autistic boy and his family will help children and their parents understand this serious developmental disorder. An introduction for parents and a list of resources supply further information. In addition, as they enjoy and identify with the family photographs so similar to their own, children will develop greater sympathy for those who may be different from themselves.
