I'm not Naughty - I'm Autistic

Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers Release date: 2002-06-19

Description

At eighteen months old, Jodi Shaw suddenly changed from being a happy, lively, loving baby into the toddler from hell - withdrawn, refusing to talk, play or be touched, unable to concentrate or be still. Written by his mother but told from Jodi's perspective, this is a fascinating, funny, and insightful account of growing up with autism. The difficulties faced by the now 13-year-old Jodi and his family (obtaining a diagnosis, seeking support and, above all, learning to live with autism twenty-four hours a day) are not underplayed, but are recounted with empathy and humour.
