Editorial Reviews

Review

Contains the knowledge & experience of an expert presented with the warmth, humor, & instructional talent of a genuine teacher & friend. -- Carol Gray, Editor, The Morning News, Spring 2000

From the Back Cover

Dr. Diane Twachtman-Cullen has fulfilled an enormous need in writing a manual that directly addresses the crucial role of paraprofessionals...This manual succeeds at many levels. It is chock full of insights, tips, and anecdotes that bring alive the everyday challenges faced by paraprofessionals, and also provides strategies to address the most common and perplexing challenges. Written in an engaging and personal manner that transcends differences in program approach or philosophy, this manual will be an invaluable resource and core reference for all educational staff - those who are paraprofessionals and those who train and work with paraprofessionals. (Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Childhood Communication Services, Cranston, RI)

How To Be A Para Pro is a book that must find its way to every school district, every school, and every classroom where children with autistic spectrum disorders are educated...Regardless of the page number, the goal of this volume never falters from view: placing information in the critically important hands of the paraprofessional...If applause can be silent and verbally unexpressed, Diane will ultimately know the applause of children who experience educational environments that are trained, understanding, and supportive of their efforts to learn. Simply stated, this is a very important book for paraprofessionals, educators, and the children they serve. (Carol Gray, Editor, The Morning News, Jenison, MI; Developer, Social Stories)

OUTSTANDING - The one book every paraprofessional who works with students within the autism spectrum should have. Part One: Autism Spectrum Disorders 101: A Short Course is concise and highlights the essential information every paraprofessional should know when working with students within the autism spectrum. Part Two: The Art and Science of Being a Para Pro, utilizes a "cook book" format, making it quick and easy to access information, allowing for immediate reference. Real-life examples and proven strategies make this book not only user friendly but immediately effective for all paraprofessionals who use it. A one of a kind! (James Ball, Ed.D., Director, Youth Consultation Service, Sawtelle Learning Center, Montclair, NJ)

From BASICS to understanding what is happening inside the maind of an Aperger's kid. This book gave us more information on how to manage my son than any seminars we attended before. To the K. teacher gave tools and what to do for difficult moments. We keep this book at school for everyone to consult . Information makes the difference to understanding and improving teaching.

This book has a wealth of information. Even though the chapters are short, and because of that, very readable, they are jam packed with useful information. I especially liked the tremendous number of specific, useful strategies located in the tables within part 2. I wonder if the reviewer below read the same book I read because I found this VERY readable.

This is a must have book if you are a parent or educator of a child with autism. The book is broken into two parts with the first part being a great general overview of autism and related disabilities. Part 2 provides information about how to work with children who have autism. Unlike some of the other books I have purchased, this book is written in an engaging and easy to understand manner.

I found this book very helpful when working with children with autism. The way it is written makes it easy to read and well organized. The teacher I work with appreciated the book for the examples, suggestions and many reusable forms. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who works with children who have autism.
