Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About – A Teenage Girl with High-Functioning Autism Shares Her Experiences
Middle school is an intimidating time for most students, but for students with autism spectrum disorders, it can be a veritable minefield of hidden curriculum rules, social misunderstandings and cliques – and that’s before they even get to the academics! In Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About, a teenager with high-functioning autism relates her own experiences in middle school. Aimed at young teens, Middle School tackles the issues that girls this age care about: fitting in, making friends, wearing the right clothes, succeeding academically and more. The book’s “for teens, by teens” approach makes it an easy, fun read while giving readers practical tips that they can use in their everyday lives. Haley – already an accomplished artist – also illustrated the book.
