Scroll down for a searchable AirTable database of more than 1000 traditionally published children’s books that touch on neurodiversity and/or mental health.
You can search by issue, publisher, author, title, whether the issue is in the main character, friend, parent or sibling - and more.
So, for example, if you want to search for all YA books with eating disorders, you can find that. Or all picture books with ADHD - you can find that too. Definitely check out our quick video tutorial:
If you know of a book that belongs in the database that isn't listed, please email us! If the book is traditionally published, and significantly represents neurodiversity or a diagnosable mental health condition, we'd love to add it.
This database is comprehensive not 'qualitative.' We're always working to improve, update, and maintain it, but we're not infallible, so some books may slip our notice. Our goal is to aggregate the possibilities. Then you can winnow, explore, focus, or curate as you wish.
Also, don't forget to visit our Blog Page! You'll find weekly guest posts by authors of books we recommend and love.
Thank you for visiting!
