I'm Not Naughty - I'm Autistic: Jodi's Journey

by Jean Shaw - £14.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2002)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843101055 | ISBN 10: 184310105x

Jodi Shaw was a happy, lively, loving baby who, at the age of eighteen months, suddenly changed into the toddler from hell. He became withdrawn, lost all language, refused to play, avoided physical contact, could not concentrate or be still, and acquired a self-restricted diet. Written by his mother but told from Jodi's perspective, this is a fascinating, funny, and insightful account of growing up with autism. The difficulties faced by the now 13-year-old Jodi and his family (obtaining a diagnosis, seeking support, and above all, learning how to live with autism twenty four hours a day)n are not underplayed but are recounted with empathy and humour.
