What makes the characters in "The Adventures of Jake Jetpulse™" so interesting? unlike typical books for kids about autism, Jetpulse Studios focuses on the three hallmarks of autism — deficits in social communication, adherence to routines, and difficulty with reading others — and divided them into the three main characters.
This makes a story that neurotypical, or non-autistic, children can read over and over. This approach to the characters can open new doors by which they could tell stories using relatable scenarios that are common to individuals on the autism spectrum.
