The Reason I Jump | Book Review Video

January 26, 2020

“The Reason I Jump,” is a book that was popular in Japan since it was first published in 2007. The author, #NaokiHigashida, was 13 years old and nonverbal. He wrote by spelling out words on a Japanese alphabet letter board. In the book Noakia tells you what it is like to live with autism answering the questions that we might usually be afraid to ask: Why don’t you make eye contact? Why can’t you have a proper conversation? Why do you hit yourself?

Why I recommend this book:
In this book about autism. You will learn how one autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways you probably never were aware of. You will learn about the joys and challenges of living with autism.It will change the way you think about someone that has #autism. You will gain insight on how to better understand and interact with a friend or family member who has autism.

Who should read this book:
The book is for anyone that knows someone with autism. I certainly would say this is a recommended read for parents & caregivers.
