Although not diagnosed with anything, our son is on the edge of many areas and we have been constantly looking for something that helps explain who he is and how to cope with how he functions. Everything led us to sensory issues, so we got this book (for him) to read, for as a 4th grader, he was definately tired of listening to his parents tell him about things. From the minute we did the "look inside" he was excited to see that a book let him know that it was okay to be different and that others were like him! The book arrived today and he read for 2 hours after his homework. He kept running in to show me how it pretained to him (or didn't) and loved explaining to his younger brother just how each of us is "like a football team." I was thrilled to see him feel so good about himself and to be relieved of the duty of coming up with how to say to him that he was not that different from everyone else.
This book is wonderful! It really gives the child a sense of ownership of who they are and how they can take control of certain things in their life to feel better about their daily living and how to feel more in control each day. When they start to forget what they have learned, a quick glance at the comics will be a gentle reminder of where they need to be and what they have read.
I would recommend this to anyone and everyone from about grade 4-10.
