Uniquely Wired is written for K-6 students and all those who live, work, and play with children on the autism spectrum or those who have other special needs. Tips for parents, counselors and educators are included at the end of the book to help all children understand the unique gifts kids with autism have.
This heartwarming story features Zak, a young boy living with autism who wants you to understand how he experiences the sights and sounds of the world around him.
Zak knows he’s not quite like his siblings and classmates. Bright lights and big crowds send him into freak-out mode. Hugs make him uncomfortable too. His atypical behaviors, from flapping his arms to spinning his body, seem so out of place. But for Zak, that’s just how he copes.
Despite some uncommon behaviors, Zak’s desires and disappointments are as ordinary as any child’s.
