A Book for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Other Special Needs
Regular price £10.99
Regular price Sale price £10.99
Divorce is a difficult topic for any parent or educator to explain to a child, perhaps even more so when the child has Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special needs. This book is designed specifically to help children with these additional needs to understand what divorce means.

Using a question and answer format, it explores the changes and feelings a child may experience during a divorce, and provides ideas to help cope with this life change. Illustrated with SymbolStix, which uses a symbol-based language for visual thinkers, this book explains a difficult topic to children who might otherwise struggle to understand it, and gives additional guidance for parents and carers.

Press Reviews

  • Ray Smithers, CEO, The Autism Channel
    I Have a Question about Divorce presents a clear, concise, and relatable way for parents and professionals to discuss and navigate the issue of divorce.
  • Elaine G.F. Hall, Founder of The Miracle Project, author, and divorced parent of a child with Autism
    Every therapist and every divorce attorney should have a copy on their shelf as they help a family navigate through this challenging time .
  • Dr. Ellen Braaten rector of the Learning and Emotional Assessment Program (LEAP) at Mass. General Hospital, Track Director of the Child Psychology Training Program at MGH/Harvard Medical School, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School and author
    Divorce is a challenging time for children as well as parents and inclusive resources on the topic are nonexistent. Though written specifically for children with ASD and special needs, I think this book will be an indispensable resource for ALL families negotiating divorce. The authors provide developmentally appropriate answers to some of the most difficult questions a parent will encounter. With it's clear language and honest insight, this book should be on the shelf of every child mental health professional and educator. It is a gift of extraordinary wisdom combined with expert answers to difficult questions.
