Author Visit with Dr. Melanie Heyworth
On April 5th, Dr. Melanie Heyworth will be joining us all the way from Australia! She will be reading her book, Just Right for You, before speaking about how important it is to celebrate our differences and to accept ourselves and everyone around us, just as they are. She will use her own experience as an Autistic mother of Autistic children to show how wonderful life can be when we see our brains as “just right for you”.
About the Book
Just Right for You offers a warm, optimistic way of introducing Autism to your child and embracing their differences.
Written by Reframing Autism CEO and founder Dr Melanie Heyworth and with the delightful illustrations of Celeste Josephine Art, the book’s Autistic creators bring a depth of insight and passion to this work.
