Books that I would reccomend!

I've been asked several times now about what books on ASD, anxiety and mindfulness would I recommend.

And there are so many to chose from - I read because I love reading and it is one of the ways that I wind down in the evenings. I also figure that the more I read up on ASD and anxiety, then the more informed I will become to assist my little superheroes.

Some of these books you may be able to find in your local bookstore, however quite a few I ordered online.

And just to clarify, I do not receive any commissions or other payments for recommending these books. These are simply the books that I and my children have found useful.
