ASH Book Club

Welcome to the ASH Book Club!

We invite our families and friends to recommend book titles to be featured on this site and read aloud. We hope to highlight two recommended books a month. Suggest a title or volunteer to read a book by emailing autismhi@gmail.com.

Once read, the videos will be stored in our online “library” on this page. We hope to introduce at least two (2) new titles every month. Enjoy and share with others!
