Format: Paperback
The child of Ellen Notbohm's award-winning Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew is now a student in her latest book, Ten Things Your Student With Autism Wishes You Knew. In the student's voice, Ellen enlightens trained educators, support staff, therapists, administrators, parents, and family members about what their student wishes they knew. She offers a concise and comprehensive discussion of the underlying issues that influence teaching students with autism.

Ten Things is practical and written in clear, no-nonsense language. Ellen engages her audience with a lively and often witty writing style. She captures what it is like to function in the world of a student with autism, and provides a thoughtful examination and explanation of remedies for the problems she identifies.

Ellen says, "To be able to hear the voice of our student with autism and respond in ways that are meaningful to him or her, we must be able to step outside our own deeply, deeply ingrained frame of reference." She shows how important and possible it is to suspend all we know so we are able to think differently.

Ten Things is founded on the essential circle of learning between student and teacher, and it challenges us to lay aside our egos and become child centered. To use Ellen's quote from the 1995 Disney movie "Pocahontas", if you read and apply Ten Things, "You'll learn things you never knew you never knew.

I gave a copy of this book and "Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" to my child's principal and teacher. As the parent of a child with autism, I find myself reading these books again and again. What I appreciate most is the emphasis on recognizing the child with autism as a whole person, and not a series of problems needing to be fixed. They're short, easy to read, and packed with useful information for anyone wanting to know more about what it's like to be a child with autism in a neuro-typical world.

This is the best book I have ever read on the topic and believe me I have read hundreds!! I am currently reading this book with my therapy team and paraprofessionals in my classroom as a book club on a weekly basis to give us a new perspective. Definite read for anyone working in this field and for parents too! Wish some of my parents would read it so they would understand that we are all on the same team.

Ellen Notbohm's second book about autism, TEN THINGS YOUR STUDENT WITH AUTISM WISHES YOU KNEW, is every bit as informative and encouraging as her first. She gets to the point, writes from personal experience, provides practical insight, and she cares. Her first book, TEN THINGS YOUR CHILD WITH AUTISM WISHES YOU KNEW, addressed matters pertaining to the very young. This book continues with the older child's development. After reading her book(s), anyone who deals with the mysteries of autism should feel greatly encouraged and better equipped to help these children grow.

We got this book because our nephew is autistic and we wanted a better understanding of why he does what he does. After reading this book which was recommended by a friend, we are no longer in the dark about alot of his behavior problems. We thought it was him, as it turns out, we were the ones who needed the education on how to treat him so we wouldnt trigger certain things in his behavior. It works!!

This book gave me a picture from inside a sweet one's mind. I also recommend Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew, by the same author. Again this is basic but valuable information. These are two of my favorite books about Autism and the first that I lend out to others who ask me about my students.

I bought this book along with, Ten Things Your Child With Autism Wishes You Knew, and they have been two of the most valuable books that I have purchased. Inside these pages I found the key to understanding my child better. I found them so informative that I even bought copies for my child's teacher to keep.

I have given this book to EVERY teacher who has called me about a problem they are having with my child. I can explain to them why my child is doing the things she is doing but it is much easier for them to get the whole picture. While I had to learn by trail in error this saves them from doing things that will trigger a problem. I believe EVERY teacher should read this book,wheather they are teaching special ed or not, because at some point in their career they WILL come across a student that will wind up teaching them a thing or two.
