Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Grandparents are given information and support during the vicissitudes of caring for a child with Autism Disorder. Each chapter deals with a different issue such as sensory issues, emotional issues, or social situations. A definition, examples, charts, boxes of special information, and tips for handling situations are given. For those with Autism, weakness in the executive function is found in the frontal lobe of the brain. This means that the person has difficulty being able to plan ahead, regulate emotions and motivation, ability to focus and remember, ability to relate to others, and problems with mental flexibility. Popular discipline methods for grandparents such as counting 1-2-3 or using stickers or tokens as rewards are suggested. Providing a quiet place for a retreat at family gatherings, special food, preparing the child ahead, and leaving before it gets late are suggestions for successful holidays. Grandparents can help parents by providing relief. There is a list of references, recommended resources, and books for kids of various ages. This is a helpful book for literate grandparents who want to make a difference in the lives of their children and grandchildren. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
