Hi, I have young teen with HFA and he is aware of his diagnosis. He also loves to read and reads at a high level.

I am looking for recommendations for reading material for him to read and learn more about HFA....something engaging and informative maybe even written specifically for this population and/or the general public. Not something written for parents/educators/therapists of kids with. I've heard mixed reviews on some of the autobiographies out there but open to hearing if those might be helpful/appropriate for a young teen.

I'd prefer a good book or two but would take reliable articles and websites he could explore.

My kids liked this one:
The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules, 10th Anniversary Edition: The Handbook of (Not-So-Obvious) Neurotypical Social Guidelines for Autistic Teens https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0.....JK627

Also, check out the literature here:

Anything by Dr. Temple Grandin, but you'll need to screen for appropriateness.
