Roar's in Shorts, Let's Play Sports! Paperback / softback
by HAZEL REEVES
Illustrated by Dave McTaggart
Part of the Roar Brave & Strong series
The fourth title in a beautiful series of picture books features Roar, the brave and strong little dinosaur who knows it's OK to do things differently.
Roar books and resources have been specially created to help children with high-functioning Autism/Asperger's Syndrome and those who live and work with them.
Just like Roar, children with autism think in a different way.
The enchanting books invite children, parents/carers and professionals to celebrate the strengths of children with Asperger's.
Roar has many great qualities including honesty, determination, attention to detail, exceptional memory and a sense of humour.
Roar helps children move from feeling, 'I've got it wrong!' to saying, 'This is me.
I'm okay.' Roar is the main character in each book, alongside a family member and her supportive friend.
She uses her special talents and likes to be busy, but enjoys taking a break by hiding - just as children with Asperger's find joining in can be hard work and like to take a break, perhaps by doing a simple activity on their own; routine and ritual restore an overloaded mind.
