I am a registered nurse. I have a MS in Psychiatric/mental health nursing, and in addition, I also have a PhD in Research/Education in nursing. I have worked for over a decade with special needs kids, including children on the autism spectrum, both in a hospital (outpatient) and private setting. I just have to say that these workbooks are a breath of fresh air! Finally, a comprehensive, super easy to follow curriculum for helping kids expand language, ask questions, and organize their speech. The thing that struck me the most about the workbooks is how methodical and well-structured they were. Anyone can follow them. They can move with the child from hand-to-hand (environment to environment). And they can be used again and again as the child gains skill from the lessons. I applaud Ms. York for sharing her experience and expertise -- her own private journey with an autistic child -- with the rest of us, and I'm looking forward to trying the board game!
