Books featuring characters on the Autistic spectrum and/or with ADHD: a periodic book list

We frequently collect together resources on a particular theme/topic/genre for school and have decided to store them here. We have also given them a “corporate” style following on from the success of our last list for Y7 readers.

Many of our families have members who are on the Autistic Spectrum and we are sometimes asked specifically for books reflecting such households. You will already know one or two of the fiction titles: Curious incident of the dog in the night time and maybe The London Eye mystery, which are popular mainly for their fascinating narrators who view the world in an alternative way. So we have looked out similar, less well known stories and added some non-fiction titles too. All are available in the school library either in the general collection or our Shelf Help section (supporting mental health and well-being). The Library Ladiez can help you find them.

We hope they provide support and enjoyment.                                                                                   Click on the link below for a pdf of the full list.
