Friends like You. Friends Like Me.

As part of their common childhood activities, children are exposed to others who act, think, and communicate in different ways, including those with autism.  The information and presentation methods of Friends Like  You. Friends Like Me help children understand autism in an age appropriate manner reinforces everyone’s desire to be accepted and have friends, highlights similarities rather than differences, and encourages inclusion, respect, and friendship between children of all abilities in all aspect of their lives.  With funding provided by Kohl’s Department Stores, Children’s Specialized Hospital provides useful resources to help build awareness and encourage inclusion, respect, and friendship between children and teens of all abilities.
