Editorial Reviews

Review

“It is important that parents and professionals have up to date information on how to understand and help someone who has Asperger's syndrome. This book will provide an explanation of the latest theories and practical strategies. This book should be in every home library of every family that has a son or daughter with a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome.”  
--Dr. Tony Attwood, author of the The Complete Guide to Asperger Syndrome

Bookstore shelves are lined with tomes on the history, symptomology and manifestations of this puzzling disorder. Concerned parents have appreciated and devoured these books. They now understand  the scope and complexity of the syndrome. And they collectively ask, 'Now what?' Enter Patricia Romanowski Bashe. Patty uses her decades of experience as a parent and professional to design a book that meets the needs of the 'second generation' of parents who understand the disorder....and are searching for solutions, ideas, techniques and strategies. She expands on her groundbreaking classic, The OASIS Guide, by providing parents and caregivers with practical, field-tested advice aimed at teaching kids the basic life skills that will enhance their independence and their ability to face and solve everyday social and interactional problems.”
--Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed.

"Patty Romanowski Bashe has written a superbly crafted and forward-looking book for anyone who lives or works with individuals with Asperger syndrome and related disorders. Her style is practical, chock full of helpful tools. She dispels the oft-held notion that ABA is just discrete trials training. The "Tools for teaching" chapter is one of the best I have ever read! If you are a parent, run right out and buy this book! It will help you through harrowing moments. And if you are a professional, place it in your collaboration toolkit."
  --Teresa Bolick, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Author of Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence; Getting Ready For the Real World and Asperger Syndrome and Young Children: Building Skills For the Real World

"This is a tool for families to help explain how they can build teaching systems within their home to foster their child’s continued growth. The information is practical and down to earth. With both language based explanations and visuals to encourage systematic data collection and charting; parents will find this book very helpful." 
--Michelle Garcia Winner, Founder of Social Thinking®, Speech Language Pathologist, MA-CCC

Format: Paperback
As a mom of two children with very different shades of Autism, I find myself reading books about life-skills often. Usually I put them down and ask, "but what do I DO?" Not so with this guide. Many times I thought, "OK, I can do that."
This book excels in real life, step-by-step planning and teaching of essential everyday skills. Shoe-tying...CHECK; dressing...CHECK; toileting...CHECK and while we're in the bathroom, hand-washing too! You'll find topics specific to girls and boys, toddler to teen.
The author empowers the caregiver with the notion that they are in fact, the most influential teacher in their child's life. Despite the title, this book is not just useful for parents of Asperger or high functioning autistics. There isn't a child on the spectrum (or this planet) that wouldn't benefit from the tools available in this guide.

Format: Paperback
As a specialist in this field for over 30 years, I am at a great vantage point to watch many trends, curriculums, and `experts' fall in and out of favor. My "library" of books about therapy, research and activities for children on the autistic spectrum form pillars around my home and office!

For all of the times I gladly lend out these books to parents and their children, NONE are more often requested, read, used, kept and re-lent to other parents than the books of Patty Romanowski Bashe. I have replaced her last two books more than twice in my collection! Her comprehensive knowledge as both an educator and parent is vast; her tone makes things clear and accessible like no one else. She GETS it.

While the updated OASIS GUIDE TO ASPERGER SYNDROME continues to provide moments of revelation and insight to many parents with newly diagnosed children, her new book, THE PARENTS' GUIDE TO TEACHING KIDS WITH ASPERGER SYNDROME REAL LIFE SKILLS FOR INDEPENDENCE, brilliantly takes it all to the next level. In her nitty-gritty, "no stone left unturned" style, the author not only dissects and analyzes skills, but then gives practical ways for teachers and parents to guide children to managing these tasks on their own. One of the major keys to both a happy childhood and meaningful adulthood for a person on the spectrum is learning how to take care of one's self. Romanowski-Bashe has created an amazing road map for parents to succeed in guiding their children to these goals with love, courage and confidence. Amazing.

I think I was looking for answers like how to proceed in life once someone made the diagnosis. Still haven't found that book, this one was not geared towards my daughters age range and function very well.
