My son Maceo (MAY-SEE –OH) was diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder (HFA) or Aspergers syndrome at the age of four.
One night I came up with a bedtime story for him. He had already memorized the solar system by three, so I created a tale that was also an opportunity to help him with his reactions to obstacles. Being an artist I illustrated it too.
The main character is a little boy with autism, based on my son. The story takes place in outer space. Maceo travels the solar system, learning about the solar system. Through his voyage he comes across some adventures and has to deal with his emotions
Hello everyone, I'm still looking to self-publish my book. I've added a few pages and more content after talking with some people that work with autistic children.

I have started a new book called Space School
