From talking to Sean and Andy Jones I have found new directions to look into, its exciting. It adds a very personal approach an touch to my project. I will be using my brother Ben as the main character, and some of the work or illustrations could my point of view. It will be real stories, with a touch of helpful methods that i could include in the story. If he has a melt down in one of the stories, it could show me or my mother handling the situation in the best way that we could. It could include tips and helpful advice for the child and parent. I think this will incorporate real events and emotions that hopefully will be displayed through the illustrations. This is just an idea, I could still create books that don’t include my brother. The idea is however warming on me.
I have been looking at a number of authors and publishers which I was given by a representative of The national autistic Society. Its extremely useful, at the minute
