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.

  • 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!
