Autism Is… ?

Ymkye Widerman-Van der Laan

Logan overhears his Grandma tell her friend he has Autism, and he asks her ”Autism is...?” She explains it to him in this beautifully illustrated story.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a disability that affects an estimated 1 out of 68 children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls) in the US alone. It is a “spectrum” disorder because its impact on development can range from mild to severe. The areas of development most affected are social interaction and communication skills, difficulties with verbal and non-verbal communication, and leisure play.

Someone wisely said, “If you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism.” The characteristics are different with each unique individual, and so are the ways to interact, teach, and care for them.

You may or may not wish to explain autism to your child at a young age, but if you do, I hope this book can help make it easier for you, as it did for me when explaining autism to Logan. His inquisitive mind wanted to know, and once he read this story, even before it was illustrated, he was satisfied with the answer.

Beating The Bullies

Dr Lucy Blunt

In the form of an innovative children's chapter book, Beating the Bullies gives age-appropriate information aimed to 'upskill' the child and give them 'bully-proof strategies' for coping.

Beating the Bullies has two invaluable resource guides; one for parents (who often feel powerless and helpless at this time) and one for teachers (with class specific questions and activities). Beating the Bullies is engaging and interactive and an essential resource to tackle the damaging and important issue of bullying.

Been There. Done That. Try This!

Edited by Tony Attwood, Craig R. Evans & Anita Lesko

An Aspie's guide to life on earth.

Temple Grandin, Liane Holliday Willey, Anita Lesko, Stephen M. Shore, and many other Aspie mentors, offer their personal guidance on coping with the daily stressors that Aspies have identified as being the most significant, in order of urgency – anxiety, self-esteem, change, meltdowns, depression, friendship, love, and much, much more. Based on years of personal experience, this book is packed with advice from Aspie mentors who have all been there and done that! World expert Dr. Tony Attwood rounds up each chapter with professional analysis and extensive recommendations. He includes essential information on destructive strategies that may look attractive, but that have counter-productive effects. Including full color artwork from Aspie artists showing visually how they interpret each stressor, this is THE inspirational guide to life for young adults, the newly diagnosed, and as a life-long reference for anyone on the spectrum – written by Aspies for Aspies.

Beyond Behaviour Management

Autism Association of WA

The aim of this book is to assist you to understand why difficult behaviour can occur in people with Autism and other related disabilities.

Once we understand what is going wrong when a situation is challenging or difficult, we are in a position to do something about it. This book will provide the reader with both the tools and strategies to change the course of many problem behaviours. In doing so, we will assist you to look at the person in the context of their skills, their needs and their day to day life.
