A Cookbook for Non-Readers
Everyone can cook! Visual Recipes: A Cookbook for Non-Readers is a unique cookbook written for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders that fosters independence and confidence for anyone in the kitchen. The book features thirty-five recipes grouped into the following categories: breakfast, lunch, side dishes, snacks, desserts, and drinks. The recipes consist of picture-based directions with clear photographs, which include all of the details that a person with autism or a non-reader needs to be successful in the kitchen, are easy to understand, and each step is framed for visual clarity. Simple text directions also accompany each step, and the importance of safety is highlighted.
