Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Having a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be overwhelming for most parents and other family members. Parents may not know how to teach these children, who can also be difficult to reach. However, this enlightening book may offer one solution to that problem. The author has incorporated the help of several people who have children with ASD or work with those with ASD to give first-hand advice on ways to deal with these children in various situations. Comprised of numerous lists, each with top ten tips, this practical book gives the reader assistance with such things as homework, haircuts, summer camp, chores, playing games, teeth brushing, doctor appointments, and going to Disney World. For example, one tip with going to the doctor is to give the child a visual schedule to know what is going to happen step by step so there are no surprises. Readers may choose to read this book in any order, not having to read from start to finish, and can share the information with parents, teachers, friends, and family members. Although written for adults, this educational book can be read with older children to give them good ideas in different situations. The appendix includes autism blogs, websites, visuals, charts, and other ideas to help a child with ASD to succeed. In addition, the resource section gives top ten books for parents and families, educators, and peers, as well as websites for autism. Parents and educators alike would benefit from reading this book.
