The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time/Mark Haddon: I have no idea if this story is an accurate portrayal of autistic individuals. I do know, however, that it is a compelling and interesting read.
#awallofbooks It is a novel written in 2003 in the first-person of a fifteen-year-old boy with autistic spectrum condition. It is lovely and absolutely amazing how he explains his fears and difficulties when interpreting the world around him. He describes that for him it is really difficult to mingle with others, so he prefers to mingle with maths or animals. I highly recommend this book for teachers and children who live with young people with these problems. By Vicky. EOI Luarca.
