Winner of an iParenting Media Award and Finalist in the 2006 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards! Ellen Notbohm’s first book, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, was a shot heard throughout the worldwide autism community. Now, for the teacher in all of us comes Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew. The unique perspective of a child’s voice is back to help us understand the thinking patterns that guide their actions, shape an environment conducive to their learning style, and communicate with them in meaningful ways. This book affirms that autism imposes no inherent upper limits on achievement, that both teacher and child “can do it.” It’s the game plan every educator, parent, or family member needs to make the most of every “teaching moment” in the life of these children we love.

I am a 1:1 paraeducator for a student with autism. This book has truly been a great resource for me. It is an easy to read book that you will read again and again and learn something new! When I have a rough day I flip through the book for reassurance and guidance. I even bought two more books for his Special Ed. teacher and Classroom teacher. They both loved it also.
Whether your child is autistic or neuortypical, your child's educator will benefit from this book. I began reading it with a highlighter in hand (to assure the teacher would get the important parts when I gave it to her) and was unable to find anything to highlight in the first twenty pages. ABSOLUTELY EVERY WORD IN THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT!! Crucial even! An amazing book and should be on the reading list of any person wishing to be an educator. I suggest you buy a copy for yourself, your child's teacher, paraeducator, swim coach, band director, tutor, babysitter!! It is THAT good!
This is an amazing book that truly helped me to understand how to better encourage the students with Autism that find themselves in my classroom. I can 'make a difference on their staying the course and achieving or breaking their will to do well.' I can make my whole class effective if I can be inclusive and not just 'ignore or tolerate' the individual that is 'different' than everyone else. I can educate the other kids in my class in the process by my actions and communicate effectively so that all are learning.
This book is great. You don't have to be a "teacher" to read it! A parent or caregiver is a teacher too. A lot of information in a easy reading format. Feels like she is sitting in your living room talking to you.
