It's Raining Cats and Dogs by Michael Barton, Delia Barton | WaterstonesThis book shows you how people on the autism spectrum think. They approach all situations totally logically and this influences everything about them, including the way that they interpret everyday situations and expressions. The English language is full of expressions which can be difficult for people on the spectrum to understand because they think very literally. To help me understand and make sense of these ridiculous expressions I have drawn what comes to my mind when I hear them. If you have autism yourself, it can help you feel less alone and understand yourself better, if you are a parent or carer of someone with autism, it can help you understand your child better.
