Can anyone tell me if 'Where's Walley ' books are fine for children with autism ? I know some autistic children have similar to photographic memory, but I'm not sure if such a mass and conglomeration of tiny figures is a good or a bad thing for them. Aged 9 yrs.

If not what would be the best type of book ?

I don't think there is singular answer to that, Autism is a very broad spectrum of different sensitivities. Some will spot Wally straight away, others might be overwhelmed by the amount of detail and some will be fascinated by the amount of information and be counting and comparing other details, not Wally's.

In most cases it will be a safe bet but whether they take straight to it or bide their time is best left up to them as usual.

One of the most inspiring lectures I went to was a person with Asperger's, we all thought we had read the books seen the film and new a lot about it the condition but this guy managed to transfer his emotions on how things affected him which was fascinating, what the books never got across was the distraction level created by one small thing that might be irrelevant to us.

Thanks folks. I will look at the I Spy books ,Cools.

I thought the Where's Wally books would have a lot of interest, but worried that it might be overload. I understand there are so many different spectrums to autism.
She's very good at maths and memorises music to play on the piano very quickly.

I'll wait for you to get back Star, thanks .

I asked my daughter about books, she doesn't have any preferences but she said she found the where's Wally books confusing. Too busy and too much going on.
