A Vision of Empathy tells the story of Noah and Sadey on an adventure at the New View Zoo. Noah does some very strange things. Like flapping his fingers and hitting his head. In fact, most everything he does is totally weird. Why? Sadey thinks there’s just no explanation! But with the help of some amazing animals and crazy critters, Sadey gets a glimpse inside of Noah’s world and learns that, just maybe, there’s a reason for everything.
a profound message
This book is absolutely beautiful. Really is a true reflection. Totally got me!
Never have I read such an amazing book with a lump in my throat and tears streaming down my face ... I am off to give my amazing lad a huge cuddle ...

By following Sadey, as she embarks on a journey of discovery, the reader is introduced to several widely misunderstood autistic traits.
One by one, the reason for each becomes clear, and when things are clear, they are accepted as 'normal'. The lesson occurs naturally, in a genuinely entertaining story.
Every behaviour is a form of communication; every action connected to a person's emotions, thoughts, values and wishes.
A Vision of Empathy explores this concept by showing the world as Noah sees it. The results are illuminating.
