Autism Awareness Month

I'm very excited to share the news that just out in April, 2022, is a new book about Temple Grandin. She Persisted: Temple Grandin is a chapter book from the She Persisted series written by Lyn Miller Lachmann.   

I interviewed the author, Lyn, in April of 2021 about her challenges with Asperger's Syndrome and her fiction title, Rogue. It's about a young girl on the spectrum who views herself like the X-Men character,  Rogue. It contains biographical connections to Lyn Miller-Lachmann's personal experience with Asperger's. Find that interview HERE.  

There have been several books for children written about (and by) Temple Grandin for a wide range of age groups. Last April, I wrote a post exploring several titles. Find that post HERE.

Another book to check out is I Am Odd, I Am New written by Benjamin Giroux, a child with Asperger's Syndrome when he was ten-years-old.  There is a great post describing the book at Unpacking the Power of Picture Books.  The original poem may be found at the Good News Network.
