David's World A Picture Book About Living with Autism by Dagmar H. Mueller


David's World A Picture Book About Living with Autism by Dagmar H. Mueller

David does not like when people are noisy; he does not like being hugged - not even by his own brother. David does not laugh when happy or cry when sad. He speaks his own language, which is difficult to understand at times. And he eats the same foods almost every day. However, David is a brilliant pianist and seems to have an amazing ability to communicate with the family dog. And even though he is not like most children, through the eyes of his brother we are able to see how he makes progress toward understanding his world.
