About the author:
Lorin Neikirk has been helping parents and educators of children on the Autism Spectrum, with her unique approach to social stories, tools and resources, since her son's diagnosis in 2000. Lorin's unusually astute understanding of the way information is processed in the autistic child's mind, is explicated by her own diagnosis of Aspergers.
Jack's Fantastic World
(...And The Time He Decided To Paint His Brother's House!)
"Mom, is this about the time that I-"
"-Painted your brother's roof?" I interrupted.
"No," Jack said quietly, "I was thinking of something different..."
Jack is really smart, but somehow he gets himself into some pickles! This time he has painted the roof of his brother's house. Jack has Aspergers, and JACK'S FANTASTIC WORLD helps kids with and without disabilities understand why it's not a good thing to "fix" other people's work!
Written from a frame of reference which is especially logical to a child on the Autism Spectrum, JACK'S FANTASTIC WORLD is as entertaining as it is educational, encouraging re-reading and message retention. Simple drawings and minimal colors minimize visual stimulation.
Written and illustrated by Lorin Neikirk.
