"It offers humor, friendship, tolerance and a sense of belonging to any child who reads it or any parent or teacher who read sit to them," said Bohuslawsky.
Bohuslawsky and her son Alex published the book, which can now be purchased on Amazon.
"Our goal is to get one million likes on our Zack the Hippo Facebook page," Bohuslawsky explained. "We want to spread autism spectrum disorder awareness all around the world!"
Bohuslawsky is a mother of three boys. She taught 5th grade for eight years before taking an extended maternity leave. Fully thinking she'd return to teaching, life dealt her something different. Her second son was diagnosed with Asperger's in 2008 and her third son diagnosed with Autism in 2011. It was the latter diagnosis that made her want to spend the rest of her life fighting for the rights of her children and making sure they live a happy, healthy life with the best education possible.
