Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew

Winner of an iParenting Media Award and Honorable Mention in the 2005 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards! Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative book in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book defines the top ten characteristics that illuminate the minds and hearts of children with autism. Ellen’s personal experiences as a parent, an autism columnist, and a contributor to numerous parenting magazines coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum. Don’t buy just one of this book- buy one for everyone who interacts with your child! Give the gift of understanding. Helpful chapters include: My sensory perceptions are disorderedDistinguish between won’t and can’tI am a concrete thinker. I interpret language literallyBe patient with my limited vocabularyBecause language is so difficult for me, I am very visually orientedFocus and build on what I can do rather than what I can’t doHelp me with social interactionsIdentify what triggers my meltdowns
