I'm Not Naughty- I'm Autistic takes the reader beneath the skin of an autistic child, and it is not a cosy or happy place to be. Just how uncomfortable and frustrating - and terrifying - is easier to identify with after reading this mothers account. Do read this book.

A lovely, lighthearted version of a life living with autism. This is a view of autism through the eye of Jodi written by his mother. It encompasses some funny moments that many parents of autistic children can relate to. The book shows that autism is not the be all and end all, and that we as neuro-typical types are as odd to the autistic community as society deems them to be. Jean Shaw also gives a lovely insight into the Son Rise programme and how well it can work if given enough commitment. A really lovely, easy to read biography of Jodi's life thus far.
