I designed this book from what I used every year to introduce my autistic son to his mainstream primary school class. It reminded those who already knew him why he did the things he did, that he could join in and wanted to be friends, and it let children new to my son know what he was all about.
This template book is a short book about your child/student that lets other children in the classroom know about this child, why they do the things they do and behave the way they behave. It lets the other children know what they need to do to interact and help your child/student. This book also lets the other children know what behaviours they need to display towards your child/student. The text is written for you and space is provided to add photos specific to your child/student, we tell you what you need to include in the photo as well. Feel free to add extra pages if needed but change the page numbering to suit. After printing cut along the centre line and staple all pages together in the top left corner.
It is a personal choice to disclose a diagnosis or disorder. If your child/student is high functioning, you may not want them to be seen as different. If this child has obvious difficulties or challenging behaviours it can be good to let others know in a friendly way. This cuts out gossip and speculation. When other people are informed in a friendly helpful way, they are generally more tolerant and then the choice is theirs to make as to how they behave around your child/student.
