Meet the A-Team is a lovely
book for children and adults
that explains ASD in a manner that is accurate, interesting, and engaging.
While providing information about ASD, Ms. Butorac introduces us to five children with ASD who bring their individual strengths, areas of need, preferences, and quirks with them to school every day.
These children help all of us learn more about what ASD is and how it affects children at school and in the community.
I am so happy to meet the A-Team
and I look forward to sharing
this book with my students
and their families.
As a special educator,
I struggled with finding
appropriate materials and teaching tools when running social skills groups for young children with autism and related disabilities. The first book in the series - "Meet the A-Team" - enables teachers and parents to explain autism and related disabilities in a developmentally appropriate, child-friendly way.
The illustrations are adorable and
kids will identify with the characters,
their struggles, and their successes.
I am excited to share this book with my graduate students, see it in teachers' classrooms, and families' bookshelves. We need more resources like this to explain differences and promote
