Honors Projects

A is for Asperger's


For my Honors Project I chose to do a children’s book for those with Asperger’s. I was lucky enough to have a family who was always informed and extremely supportive. However, I know many children will not have the experience I had. I wanted a book for children whose parents either didn’t support or didn’t know about Asperger’s. My book could serve as a first resource for children and then they could cherish it as they grew. I chose to have two different levels on certain pages in the book. The first level provides basic information and is written in a style meant for younger readers. The second level provides more information that children can read when they are older or have a peer read it to them. I believe it is important for children with Asperger’s to not be frightened of the disorder and to realize the positive aspects it can add to their lives. I want every child with Asperger’s to know that they are loved and that there are other who are like them. I want Asperger’s to be seen not as a disability, but as a gift.
