Books about Autism Spectrum Disorder

A message from Chase: Books are not just a great way to get information about the world of autism, but they can be entertaining as well. With books, you can also take your time – you can stop and think about things, go back and read pages again, and even talk to someone about what you’re reading before continuing with the book. I guess you can say books are patient because they sit there waiting until you’re ready to move on to the next sentence or page. That must be partly why some people say that books are like friends. So if you want something for a kid or an adult, non-fiction or fiction, to learn more about autism, or to just go on a reading adventure that includes a character with autism, here’s a list of books to get you started.
