Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Approximately one or two percent of children and teenagers will suffer from this Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It is a hidden problem where few of those who have it will admit to symptoms, preferring to suffer in silence.  It can cause misunderstanding and disruption for a child and for the child’s family.   Much of the suffering is due to lack of knowledge and delay in getting help.

 

In “The Secret Problem”, OCD is explained in clear and simple language.  Cartoons are used to help children, teenagers and their parents understand the problem and it’s treatment.

The Social Skills Picture Book

Jed baker

Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations.

The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of children with ASD to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate the ‘right way’ and ‘wrong way’ to approach each situation – and the positive/negative consequences of each. A facilitator – parent, teacher, etc. – is initially needed to explain each situation, and ask questions such as ‘What is happening here?’ Children role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.

The Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond

Jed Baker

Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this picture book appeals to the visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, with colour photos of students demonstrating...

various social skills in the correct (and sometimes incorrect) way. The skills depicted are meant to be read, role-played, corrected when necessary, role-played some more and, finally, to be practiced by the student in real-life social situations. “Thought bubbles” show what people are thinking during these interactions (not always what you hoped!). Practical, engaging, and down-to-earth, this is a valuable tool to help teens navigate the often-mysterious rules of social conduct in everyday situations
