I disagree with another comment about this book not being useful for high-functioning kids. It is divided into sections such as sensory, behavior, etc., and it is very simple to skip around at your leisure to find what you need. It is a *spectrum*, with some kids having trouble with some things more than others, rather than simply "very autistic" or "a little autistic". For example, my son has supreme difficulty with transitions, feeding issues, and temper tantrums, but not sleeping problems or tactile sensory issues. This doesn't make him more or less autistic; it's just where he falls on the spectrum. It's worth having the book for whatever you specifically need. I'm very grateful to have found this resource, and will be passing it along to his preschool teacher.
This book is full of good tips and activities for helping kids. Some of these activities are more suited maybe to different levels of autism. Not only that, but personal interests too. There are lots of great ideas in here but they're maybe more suited to very young kids.
We originally bought this book (a couple years ago) to share with a friend that found some of these activities helpful for her son that has autism. (Kind of interesting that autism is more common in boys than in girls). We recently (in the last week) found out that our son has a slight degree of autism too. We had always seen him as being just very organized and structured but it's much more than that. (When he was little, he used to line his cars up according to year, make, and color. He had a set system. If any cars got out of order, that was especially challenging for him). Kids that have very mild degrees of autism often go undetected when they need help as well.
This book is full of great ideas and activities. There is something in here for everyone. It's not one of those books that will diagnose autism or degrees of autism. It's a book for what to do when it's already been diagnosed. I love that this addresses autism coming from a behavior modification approach.
It would be nice if there was a book like this for older kids and adults too. :-)
I bought this book for a friend of mine who lives in Mexico. She had been struggling looking for helpful hints to help her son both at home and at school. She told me that the book has a lot of ideas that you can start putting into practice since the very first moment you have the book in your hands. Also, don't need to follow a specific sequence when reading the book. So, you can jump back and forth looking for what you really need. Many of the ideas are ideas that you don't even imagine they exist. She mentioned that her son was reluctant to draw pictures and she did not know why. She had always handed white copy paper to her son for coloring or drawing. Apparently, the white paper reflects to much light for the very light-sensitive eyes of some autistic children. From this book she got the idea of using a different color of paper. Her son started making drawings and painting a lot since two weeks ago. This was the first idea she put into practice and, it worked! My friend is so happy with the book!
