It emphasizes all the positive aspects of a child with Autism, as well as some of the challenges they may face at school. By using simple pictures and typed text, it's an easy read for children and an essential tool for educators.


Tamar Matossian is a Behavioral Therapist with over 13 years of experience working with children who have a variety of needs from slight behavioral or developmental issues to severe autism and Down Syndrome, all of whom were the inspiration for What's Autism. She is the director of The Social Club in Southern California, where youth have a space to share similar experiences and problem solve with one another


At the age of 7, Lindsay Browne began taking art classes where she quickly proved to be a natural. She has many other talents, including being a provider of social emotional support for her twin brother Kevin who has autism. Now, at age 17, she continues to be an active advocate, not only for her brother, but also by raising money for the Boone-Fetter Clinic, part of the Autism Treatment Network.

Their booksigning is in support of The Boone Fetter Clinic, which offers diagnostic services and follow-up care for children and adolescents who have concerns in the areas of neurodevelopment, behavior, attention, sensory processing, feeding difficulties and social-emotional development.
