autism adhd children books

"Excellent interactive books for kids! These life lessons are inspired by social stories and complemented with pictograms. This makes them an excellent tool for training children at different levels."
- The Autism Association, Quebec Canada

ADRIAN AND SUPER-A is a series of social skills books that use the Social Stories concept as a base. These social skills books can be adjusted to your child’s age and abilities, and the concept has been tried out on children (3-10 years old) both with and without an autism/ADHD diagnosis. Every child gave a thumbs up!

With help of a superhero every child can identify with, a thumb with clever rhymes, a train collecting pictograms in his wagons, and of course ... the resourceful Little Miss Trigger, your child will learn how everyday life works. Each book has 48 thoughtfully illustrated pages with pictograms and other educational material at the end. The stories encourage different ways of interacting while reading and are tailored to children with autism and ADHD.  The author has a degree in Social Science and of course a daughter who is a Super-A.

THE WORKBOOKS are specially tailored for the children with autism and ADHD, as well as their strengths and difficulties. The exercises will help develop your child''s executive functions and theory of mind by teaching even a young child to think in steps and understand how others feel. Parents as well as kindergarten or special education teachers can use the STARTERS Workbooks for children three years and up. The SMARTIES Workbooks are suitable for children who can grasp multiple choices at once. Let the motor skills determine how to answer: Point, draw, or give a thumbs up with Thummie the Thumb.
