Add To Cart

By now, Debby and Tori, AuKids’ co-editors, had started to provide talks at conferences. One of those talks focuses on the relationship between parents and professionals. In this issue, our feature Let’s Talk addresses common clashes and concerns. We also interview one of our friends and experts, Adele Devine, director of SEN Assist, about her new book Colour Coding for Learners with Autism and talk about the magical way that using colour can help kids with autism to navigate a confusing world.
