Growing Up Book for Boys: What Boys on the Autism Spectrum Need to Know!

The Growing Up Book for Boys explains the facts behind the growth spurts, body changes and mood swings of adolescence for boys aged 9-14 on the autism spectrum.

The pre-teen and teenage years are a confusing time when bodies start acting with a will of their own, friendships change and crushes start to develop.

Using direct literal language and cool colour illustrations, this book tells boys all they need to know about growing hair in new places, shaving, wet dreams and unexpected erections. It's full of great advice on what makes a real friend, how to keep spots away, and how to stay safe online.

Most importantly, it explains that every body is amazing and unique and encourages young boys with autism to celebrate difference
