A 5 Is Against The Law!

Karl Dunn Buron

Social Boundaries: Straight Up! An Honest Guide For Teens And Young Adults.

When does staring go from being merely “odd” to harassment? This honest guide for teens and young adults tells it straight up! Building on Kari Dunn Buron’s popular The Incredible 5-Point Scale, this book takes a narrower look at challenging behavior with a particular focus on behaviors that can spell trouble for adolescents and young adults who have difficulty understanding and maintaining social boundaries. Using a direct and simple style with lots of examples and hands-on activities, A 5 Is Against the Law! speaks directly to adolescents and young adults. A section of the book is devoted to how to cope with anxiety before it begins to escalate, often leading to impulsive and unacceptable behaviour. Throughout the book, the reader is encouraged to think about and create his own behaviour on an anxiety scale that applies to his particular emotions and situations.

A Friend Like Henry

Nuala Gardner

The remarkable true story of an autistic boy and the dog that unlocked his world.

This is the inspiring account of a family’s struggle to break into their son’s autistic world – and how a beautiful retreiver dog made the real difference. Dale was still a baby when his parents realised that something wasn’t right. Worried, his mother Nuala took him to see several doctors, before finally hearing the word ‘autism’ for the first time. Scared but determined that Dale should live a fulfilling life, Nuala describes her despair at her son’s condition, her struggle to prevent Dale being excluded from a ‘normal’ education and her sense of hopeless isolation. Dale’s autism was severe and violent and family life was a daily battleground. But the Gardner’s lives were transformed when they welcomed a gorgeous Golden Retriever into the family. The special bond between Dale and his dog Henry helped them to produce the breakthrough in Dale they had long sought. From taking a bath to saying ‘I love you’, Henry helped introduce Dale to all the normal activities most parents take for granted, and set him on the road to being the charming and well-adjusted young man he is today. This is a heartrending and fascinating account of how one devoted and talented dog helped a little boy conquer his autism.

A is for Autism, F is For Friend

Joanna Keating-Velasco

A is for Autism, F is for Friend provides a unique glimpse of life from the perspective of a child who has severe autism.

It is written through the voice of Chelsea, a ten year old girl, who just happens to have severe autism. In A is for Autism, F is for Friend, Chelsea sees kids on the playground and at the park playing games. She then expresses her desire to get to know some of them. However, she explains that social interaction can be tricky for her. As Chelsea explains some of her behaviors and challenges, she compares them with issues that all kids face. These examples might make a typical child think, “Hey, I experience that too!” Due to the fact that severe autism usually impacts a person’s communication ability significantly, giving Chelsea a voice provides a rare viewpoint on what a child with severe autism faces daily. Chelsea discusses issues of eye contact and explains echolalia. She helps readers see that she’s not so different after all and creates opportunities for other kids with autism. Chelsea cheerfully shows us that if we look closely, we are sometimes more similar than different by clarifying some of the mysteries of autism. She brings a fun and clear voice for those children who cannot articulate the challenges that autism presents. A is for Autism, F is for Friend provides an enjoyable discussion-oriented format for teaching our youth about autism.

A Thorn In My Pocket

Eustacia Cutler

A Thorn in My Pocket is Eustacia Cutler's story of raising her daughter, Temple Grandin, in the conservative Leave-it-to-Beaver world of the fifties.

A time when children with autism were routinely diagnosed as “infant schizophrenics” and banished to institutions. She tells of her fight to keep Temple in the mainstream of family, community, and school life, how Temple responded and went on to succeed, as Ms. Cutler puts it, “beyond my wildest dreams.” Ms. Cutler also explores the nature of the autism disorder as doctors understand it today, and how its predominant characteristics reflect our own traits in an exaggerated form.
