A Vision of Empathy tells the story of Noah and Sadey on an adventure at the New View Zoo.
Noah does some 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!
It is one of the best stories I have ever read, and it explains autism in such a way that you can't fail to understand how the characters actually feel.
- Abigail Hawkins, The SENsible SENCO
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.
The entertaining story helps all children to understand autism in a fun, relatable way.
Autistic children, in particular, will enjoy reading a story with characters with whom they can identify similarities.
This book is excellent in helping those without autism see that not everyone sees or reacts to the world in the same way. Great to help children understand differences.
- Mrs V. Whitfield
The book can help parents to improve their (and their family's) understanding during or following diagnosis.
It can also help neurotypical children to better understand their siblings who have autism, and to develop patience.
