The "Kit for Kids" is designed to teach elementary and middle school students about their peers with autism. The kit is centered around an illustrated, fold-out booklet called "What's Up with Nick?" This colorful, kid-friendly booklet tells the story about a new student named Nick, who has autism, through the eyes of a typical peer. The story teaches children that autistic students may think differently or need some accommodations, but all students are of equal worth and should be treated as such.

The kit contains 20 story booklets, a poster, animated videos, and printable activity workbooks for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6-8. There is also an online version that students can log in to watch animated videos and play online games. These materials can be assigned as independent or group classwork, or as homework.
