Meet Julen. A grade-school student who teaches us about some common behavioral characteristics of autism in the classroom. The goal is to help educate his peers on the challenges that kids on the spectrum might face throughout the school day. Julen helps his classmates understand and relate to him so that he can be accepted in an inclusive classroom setting.
After reading about Julen, the book includes activities to engage students in meaningful discussion. These activities give students the skills to understand and talk about our differences. They will learn positive and proactive strategies that support inclusion through self-kindness, friendliness, and empathy.
