Book Review – The Reason I jump


Book Review – The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida,

 The Reason I jump is an incredible read and one I always recommend to new families after a diagnosis, who are desperate to immerse themselves into understanding more about an autistic mindset.

Naoki taught himself to use an alphabet grid and create a form of communication, in this book he  answers a series of questions addressing topics such as eye contact, running/competitions, and provides insightful and personal answers to a range of questions to reveal a window into his mindset, which a lot of parents and autistics may appreciate.
‚ÄčThis book was SO important for me on my path parenting my own autistic child, and gave me incredibly insight into a different way around so many aspects of life.
‚ÄčI understand the book has also been made into a film (I have yet to watch this, but would love to hear if you have, and how the two media forms compare)
If you haven’t read it yet, we urge you to pick up a copy – it is available here via amazon – https://amzn.to/3saOgSd
‚ÄčIt is honestly a book you can tear through and hyperfocus in a weekend –  it is absolutely one of my favourite resources for autistic families!
