I'm not Naughty - I'm Autistic : Jodi's Journey, Paperback / softback Book

I'm not Naughty - I'm Autistic : Jodi's Journey Paperback / softback


At eighteen months old, Jodi Shaw suddenly changed from being a happy, lively, loving baby into the toddler from hell - withdrawn, refusing to talk, play or be touched, unable to concentrate or be still.

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 to live with autism twenty-four hours a day) are not underplayed, but are recounted with empathy and humour. Jean Shaw, the mother of two children, is a housewife and full time carer.

She hopes that the story of her autistic son will reassure and help many other ordinary families and also educate the general public about the problems associated with autism.
