Anger is not a cuddly emotion that normally lends itself to children's books. But anger is something that our children with additional needs are usually all too familiar with. I believe it is an emotion that needs dealing with honestly and realistically.
Someone Like Me. Dylan's Story, opens with him feeling angry and confused. He thinks that he is stupid and different from everyone else. This is far from uncommon with children with Asperger's syndrome, who can feel isolated and unhappy, especially in challenging environments like school and in team sports.
Understanding his diagnosis, and finally making a friend who also has ASC, is Dylan's journey towards acceptance of who he is, and the potential that he has to be.
