Isaac and his Amazing Asperger Superpowers by Melanie Walsh

Isaac and his Amazing Asperger Superpowers by Melanie Walsh
April 8, 2017 Alexandra Adlawan
To spread more awareness for autism here is another inspiring autism book everyone should read.
For anyone who knows someone on the autism spectrum
Meet Isaac!
He’s a superhero!
He might look like everyone else, but his brain works a little bit differently, and he’s got special superpowers to prove it.
Unlike the last autism book, this one is more specifically directed towards little kids in preschool and kindergarten. This book should definitely be read at story time.
The thing about Asperger’s is you can’t see it. When you say you have Asperger’s, people look at you and think ‘I don’t see anything wrong with you.” It’s hard to have a disability that no one can see, like a broken leg. I’ve had some trouble with that in the past.
This book made a point of saying that kids with Asperger’s tend to take things said literally. I know I did as a child. In elementary school when my teachers told me that if I didn’t finish my work I wouldn’t be able to leave. I thought I would have to stay there late into the night and that terrified me to the bone as a kid. So be careful what you say to a kid with Asperger’s or any kid, they might take what you say too seriously.
