The number of children diagnosed with autism keeps rising.  It’s now one in 68, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The new estimate is roughly 30 percent higher than the estimate reported in 2012.  Mother-daughter co authors Judy Cohen and Mindee Pinto wrote a book, called Mikey. According to the authors, it’s the book to have for classroom teachers.

Mikey is a book about a school day through the eyes of a child with autism. Autism knows no barrier to skin color, gender, language spoken, age or wealth. It impacts students and their families that attend private, public, suburban and parochial schools, in other words, all schools. This book aims at educating others.
Available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
