Illustrations for In My World, a traditionally published picture book written by special needs teacher Jillian Ma. The story follows a boy with autism, and shares the world seen through his eyes. The ending encourages people to develop more empathy and awareness of neurological diversity.

As part of my research process, I read The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida. I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to better understand one person's experience living with autism.
