My Green Book
Sam is 11 years old and is starting comprehensive school, like many children his age is nervous about the move, however unlike many children Sam suffers from ASD. Sam suffers from hypersensitive hearing and so almost all sound causing him pain, due to this Sam has a hard time keeping his concentration. To help himself with the change he has written his routine into a green book that he keeps with him to keep him focused on what to do, he also wears earmuffs to block out as much sound as he possibly can, however he is still very apprehensive about the change. Sam must soon learn to deal with this strange big world and find a place of solace for himself when things get to much to handle.
