Reviews for Rules
RatingComments
5This is the kind of book I want to see more of because it is a realistic look, not only at autistic behavior, but at the confusion that rules cause for many people with autism. Catherine, 12, has a younger brother who has autism. David, 8, has difficulty expressing himself verbally. He does not understand the Tacit Social Codes & Rules. Catherine teaches him basic things such as chewing with his mouth closed, not putting toys in the fish tank, and not running off when something unrelated catches his attention. Catherine keeps a notebook full of rules to help her brother. She helps David express himself and "find his own voice," in a manner of speaking. Two other people influence Catherine. One is Kristi, a popular girl and a boy who is paraplegic. The boy attends the same occupational therapy clinic as David. In some very poignantly introspective moments, Catherine discovers that the boy is a true friend. He and Catherine care about each other. They share values and similar experiences. The bond between the two is heartwarming and extends to David. Kristi, in turn, also proves to be a friend.
