When You Get To Know Me encourages the inclusion of children with autism and sensory processing disorders. Getting to know them and seeing things from their perspective.

This picture book is ideal for ages 4 years and up and comes to life when read aloud. With rhyme and rhythm to please the ear of young learners, as well as playful characters and colourful images to engage the eye, it will soon be a favourite book. With vocabulary expanding words and concepts to promote inclusion, this book will start conversations on difference and diversity and inspire us to discover the spice of life!

It is okay to be different, but we all want to be understood. It is not always easy to see another way of looking at things. Are some people missing out on fun or learning because of barriers preventing them from joining in? Perhaps by getting to know each other we can help everyone participate by overcoming these barriers. Maybe we can discover something about our own world when we look at it through another’s eyes?

What could happen if we share the magic when toes and sand meet or move a book and see the lights dance off the book’s pages?

    This beautifully illustrated children’s book has an uncanny way of connecting as much with adults as it does with children. It promotes neurodiversity in such a realistic way that it is an enjoyable and relatable read for all. Katie’s simple yet glaringly accurate portrayal of the importance of inclusion will touch the hearts of any reader. The view of the world through the eyes of the child with ASD is very powerful. ‘When you get to know me’ is perfectly titled and nurtures the reader on a journey of acceptance, patience and understanding. I highly recommend this book particularly to be read in mainstream primary school classrooms so that all children may have an appreciation of inclusion and the skills and understanding to live accordingly.

    We love When You Get To Know Me.
    Its sparks ideas and discussions of different points of view and how to include everyone, no matter how differently they may perceive the world.
    I believe this book is a great inclusive resource for educators. Not only is it easy and fun to read, with rhyming and rhythm to engage children, it opens up opportunities for discussions and reflection with the children and educators too.

    “Your charming little book arrived today – I related to it, both for myself, and quite a lot for other neurodivergent kids I’ve known.”…Melanie
