Since We're Friends: An Autism Picture Book

Author(s): Celeste Shally


Children with autism struggle to make friends and navigate social situations. However, one child can make a significant difference in the life of a child with autism by offering compassion, understanding, and friendship. "Since We're Friends" is about two boys. One has autism, the other does not. The story of their friendship provides practical examples of how to make such a unique relationship work. When Matt gets upset at the pool because it is unexpectedly closed or when the neighborhood kids leave him out of their games, his friend knows exactly how to make Matt feel accepted and happy. The situations in this book help children to see that their peers with autism can make a fun, genuine contribution to a friendship-no matter their differences.
