  1. Understanding autism can begin with stories about a child, sibling, friend, and classmate and even a kid detective!

  2. These seven books feature characters on the autism spectrum and all the topics we love to dig into when it comes to the middle school years.

  3. Books reflecting the neurodiversity of people are important, both for kids to see themselves and to build empathy for others.
