Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew
Author(s): Ellen Notbohm
A bestseller gets even better! Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative book in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book describes ten characteristics that help illuminate--not define--children with autism.
Ellen's personal experiences as a parent of children with autism and ADHD, a celebrated autism author, and a contributor to numerous publications, classrooms, conferences, and websites around the world coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum. This updated edition delves into expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social processing skills, and the critical roles adult perspectives play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient, productive life.
A bonus section includes ten more essential, thought-provoking "things" to share with young people on the spectrum as they cross the threshold of adulthood, and an appendix of more than seventy questions suitable for group discussion or self-reflection. This new edition sounds an even more resonant call to action, carrying the reader farther into understanding the needs and the potential of every child with autism.
"The FIRST book you should read when your child is diagnosed. Written by a mum with fantastic insight into the world of autism, through the child's eyes, and having a son of her own with ASD really shines through in the book. It is an intelligent and empathetic book written FOR our children. Ellen Notbohm is an amazing mother and author! Have bought this book for ALL my family."--Trinny Holman, Queensland, Australia "I have been working as an educator/therapist with children with autism for five years now and I feel a deep resonance with Ellen's books, as the writings are based on the same system of belief that I have always tried to work from."--Lindsay Ronald, intervention therapist "You have taught me so much about my nephew's world I could never have understood! I am so grateful for people like you who are blazing a trail for the children of tomorrow."--Cheryl Wheeler, university library technician
