Have a Question about Cancer: Clear Answers for All Kids, including Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other Special Needs
Cancer is a difficult topic for any parent, caregiver or educator to explain to a child. This book is designed specifically to help kids, including children with autism spectrum disorder or other additional needs, to understand what it means when someone in their life has cancer.

Using a question and answer format, it explores the life changes and feelings of uncertainty a child may experience if a loved one has cancer.


Illustrated with Symbol Stix, a symbol-based language for visual thinkers, this book explains a difficult topic to children who might otherwise struggle to understand it.

The book also features a short picture story that repeats the complete story for children who process information best through visual cues. Additional guidance for parents and carers gives ideas to help children cope with this experience.
