i have just read a book called “the reason i jump” by naoki higashida who is a 13 year old japanese boy who has autism.
it shows how he is constantly striving to stop upsetting people.
he spoke about how difficult PE was at school because he was being told to move his legs, lift his arms etc
however he didnt have a sense of where his legs were and hadnt a clue how to make them move in a certain way.
it reminded me of how i felt when ms made me lose control of my legs.
the reason i jump is a very uplifting book and the author explores aspects of humanity.
worth a read
