I have a huge personal interest in childhood autism and indeed studied it at university too, so when I heard about this app, I am a child: Just Like You, I was fully focused.
It’s brand new and only hit the Apple App Store yesterday, it tells the story of what’s it like to be a child with Asperger Syndrome. It’s helpful whether you know someone who has recently been diagnosed, whether it’s for a child with Asperger’s or primarily if you just want to learn more about it.
There are many traditional books on this subject I remember some from my university reading lists, also written from this perspective, but there are not many interactive iOS books on the subject and this one looks like it will become very popular.
You can read more about the features below, if you would like to download this app you can do so here. It retails for $2.99/£1.99/download.
Explore life through the eyes of a child with Asperger’s. Mason tries to understand the world around him and finds his own self worth in being different. With two different modes to explore this book, a reader can choose to have the book read to him, or read at his own pace. Accompanied with sound FX and full color illustrations, this book is an excellent read for anyone looking to understand more about life with Asperger’s.
