?  About our Ebooks


Full of simple strategies for happiness in children and teens with autism, this book is a must read for anyone dedicated to the wellbeing of a child on the spectrum.

Bringing a refreshingly positive approach to mental health and autism, the guide is full of practical ideas for helping children strengthen their self-worth, optimism and receptivity to happiness. It also reveals how children can build resilience and better understand their feelings, giving them the skills to flourish and thrive and to ward off negative thoughts. The activities are ideal for all learning levels and can be done individually or in groups, at home or in the classroom. Talking about mental health in autism is all too often reduced to ways of 'curing illness' - this book helps to prevent poor mental health by making happiness a priority and an attainable goal.


'It is great to read a book that focuses on happiness. Victoria Honeybourne has written a book that you can read cover to cover if you have an interest in the field, or as a dip in resource if you are working with a student and need some ideas fast. I can see this being a valuable tool in schools.'
- Kate Bradley, Head of Autism & Inclusion in an Inner London school and co-author of 101 Inclusive and SEN Maths Lessons

'This really is a wonderful resource ... knowing how busy many teachers/practitioners are, the 'top tips' and 'if you only have 5 minutes' sections are of great value.'
- Georgina Roycroft, Advisory teacher for autism

'What a refreshing book this is ... filled with practical ideas and activities to build confidence, self-esteem and resilience. This is a fantastic resource for parents and professionals and I'm sure that it will enrich many lives.'
- Adele Devine, special needs teacher, author and co-founder of the multi-award-winning SEN Assist autism software
