World Book Day and Autism in Schools books

Our team have been inspired by the Autism in Schools project. They have been busy planning a book club.

We have a great list of books relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental needs.

There are books for children, young people, their siblings and peers, as well as parent carers.

We are excited to announce that copies of the books will be in the main local libraries.

The books will be at your local Lincs Inspire library in Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Immingham, and Waltham.

There will be four pop-up events at theses Libraries during Autism Acceptance Week which runs from Monday 28 March- Sunday 3 April.

Next week, Thursday, 3 March is World Book Day.

Find out more about the campaign and what books you can get for free with your £1 book token. World Book Day | World Book Day is a registered charity. Our mission is to give every child and young person a book of their own.

Share what your child is reading and follow the campaign on social media with the hashtag #WorldBookDay.

You can also try The Children’s Trust and Waterstones recommended books for children and teenagers that explore ideas of disability and special needs.
