    Beverly Bishop was determined to help her son with autism fit in with his peers by fostering understanding and tolerance among her son’s friends and schoolmates. She wrote My Friend with Autism for her son’s elementary teachers and peers. Beverly conducts autism awareness trainings for law enforcement officers and teaches safety and educational classes around the country for parents, family members, professionals, college students, and other community members. Beverly has also taught in both public and private schools. Beverly and her husband, Thad, have two children who have enjoyed homeschooling and acting.

    Craig Bishop worked as an art educator in Michigan Public Schools for thirty years. He retired from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo as an instructor in Art Education, where he also received his early training in art. Craig enjoys painting, illustrating, teaching art classes, and being a grandparent to Henry and Lucy.

    This book’s vivid illustrations and charming storyline will foster tolerance and understanding among peers, while the printable coloring pages will enlighten and engage learners!

    My Friend with Autism is the exceptional result of parent Beverly Bishop’s determination to educate her son’s classmates about autism, thus helping her son fit in at school. A peer narrator explains that his friend with autism is good at some things and not so good at others—just like everyone else! In an informative, positive tone, he addresses issues such as:

    • Sensory Sensitivity
    • Communication Differences
    • Unique Ways of Playing
    • Insistence on Routine

    At the end of the book are Page-by-Page Notes for Adults, which supplement the text with facts and explanations to further educate teachers and classmates’ parents.

    The FREE companion CD contains a printable coloring page for every page of the book, including the Page-by-Page Notes for Adults and other features such as:

    • 18 Signs and Symptoms of an Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • 10 Quick Strategies for Helping a Child with Autism
    • Recommended Reading
    • And more!
