All About Me – A Step-by-Step Guide to Telling Children and Young People on the Autism Spectrum about Their Diagnosis
Based on direct work with over 250 individual children, Andrew Miller wrote this book in order to provide parents and professionals with information, tools and guidance to help introduce children to autism in the absence of specialist support. This in-depth guide describes the practicalities of disclosure, including when to tell, who should do it and what they need to know beforehand with strategies to tailor your approach as every child’s experience will be different. Step-by-step instructions detail how to deliver the program and produce with a child a personalized booklet containing information about their personal attributes and their autism.
These booklets and follow-up material help make disclosure a positive and constructive experience for everyone. Accompanying material can be downloaded online including questionnaires, examples of children’s booklets and flexible templates.
