I did not get much out of this for my two high IQ Auties. It really focuses on the more severe symptoms of lower-functioning autism. But it is SOOOOOO good... Too bad I can't use much of it. I wish folks wouldn't lump these diagnoses together. So different. Different needs and symptoms. Still, this would be an INCREDIBLE resource for autistic kids.

I think everyone should read this book so that they can understand the struggles that parents and children face. It has great ideas for teaching children with these conditions but a lot of the tips apply to people who deal with a child who has ADD or ADHD or just doesn't have the desire to learn. It's a big book but it doesn't take as long to read it as you would think.

I bought this book to give me some ideas to broaden the activities that I can do with my "mildly" autistic 2-year-old daughter. However, she only communicates through PECS so we can't do most of the activities in the book. This book touches on many different subjects and I can see me using it more in the future when she is more verbal.

When I purchased this book, I thought that it covered potty training as one reviewer said. However, it does not cover it. The authors said that there is too much information to include and to purchase a different book if you are looking to potty train.

This is the best book on working with children with autism I have purchased. I have purchased several. The book is easy to read, filled with great ideas. I loaned it to the teacher next door, she kept it for a weekend then ordered her own. Truly worth having. It won't sit on the shelf.

1001 Great Ideas for Teaching Children with Autism is a great resource for anyone who's life is touched by Autism. I have not had the book for long. But I wrote down useful information for my son's IEP. I will be able to use this book for years to come as a resource.

My nephew was diagnosed with Autism this past Spring so I put together an Autism care package for my brother and his wife.

They are young parents still trying to find their way in life and I live so far away I wanted to do something for them so this is what I came up with. In addition to a subscription to a magazine for parents of Autistic children, I sent them these:

Toilet Training for Individuals with Autism or Other Developmental Issues, 2nd Edition
Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew
1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism or Asperger's, Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition
Baby Babble - Speech-Enhancing DVD for Babies and Toddlers

My sister in law was very appreciative and said they were helpful.

[...] Thanks!

One of the reasons I liked this book was that we received mixed input from friends and family regarding our son's diagnosis, especially since he was 4.5. This book indicated many examples of habits and behaviors that gave my husband and I 'ah-ha!' moments and it helped us feel less powerless to help our son. we knew that traditional ways of dealing with certain things did not work with our son and this book helped point out things that did.
