Books to Help Kids with Autism Navigate Emotions and Social Cues

The Kids’ Guide to Staying Awesome and in Control by Lauren Brukner

Who does not want to be awesome? The other part, staying in control, may be the difficult part for children with autism. This book is not only about emotional control, but also sensory regulation as well. After all, some children on the spectrum are highly susceptible to sensory overload. This book has both theoretical and practical advice on how they can regulate their sensory issues and emotions, including such things as breathing exercises and wearing noise-reducing headphones.
