Congrats to Yesim Söderlund who won a copy of Chantal Sicile-Kira'snew book, 41 Things to Know About Autism.Order a copy for just $9.99 at AMAZON.
Chantal says, " I wrote this book because parents often write to me and ask, "Is there a book I can give to my mother-in-law or my brother or my neighbor that explains autism in simple terms - that answers the questions people ask : "I'm a grandparent: what can I do to help?" "Why does your child always carry a green plastic snake?" "Why can't he look me in the eye?" "What are the emotional and financial effects on the family?"
I wanted to get out something to help people for Autism Awareness month - so people who wanted to could have a small book to hand out!"
About the book: “A wonderful first introduction to autism for parents, teachers, relatives, and neighbors of a child on the autism spectrum.” - Temple Grandin, PhD
