9 Books for Kids With Characters on the Autism Spectrum

You and your children probably know a person on the autism spectrum, it may be a family member, a close friend, or you. Books and stories can help children accept autism and learn that the autistic community is not a monolith. Autistic children are unique individuals with their own feelings, hopes, and emotions, just as allistic (non-autistic) children are.

While some of these books are written specifically for children on the autism spectrum, others are aimed towards siblings and friends. Regardless of the specific audience, each of these 9 books about the autism spectrum provide a level of comfort and understanding that can only be achieved through a good story.

1. The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida

Ages 8-12
Every parent of an autistic child wishes to get inside the autistic mind, and this book helps to make that a reality. Thirteen-year old Naoki Higashida cannot physically speak out loud, but uses an alphabet grid to carefully construct the answers to common questions people have about those on the spectrum. Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks? Why don’t you make eye contact when you’re talking? Higashida’s book is charming and almost painfully honest. It was a New York Times bestseller, and spent 7 weeks on NPR’s Hardcover Nonfiction Bestseller List. Read More.
