A bestseller gets even better! 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 describes ten characteristics that help illuminate—not define—children with autism.
Winner of an iParenting Media Award and Finalist in the 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 when it was first published. Ellen’s personal experiences as a parent of children with autism and ADHD, a celebrated autism author, and a contributor to numerous publications, classrooms, conferences, and websites around the world coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum. This 2nd edition delves into expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social processing skills, and the critical roles adult perspectives play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient, and productive life.
