A practical guide to Autism What every Parent , Family Member, and Teacher needs to know

Fred Volkmar, Lisa A weisner

$$ as of Aug 2014 Autism is in the public spotlight now more than ever as new research and information appears almost daily. Although in many ways this is a positive development it also presents challenges to families and practitioners who want to keep up with the latest developments and are left to sift through new information by themselves to see what is credible and relevant for them. Each of us needs a personal research assistant who can determine which information we need to pay attention to and let us know how it might affect our daily work and the children we are living with or serve. Since we each don't have our own research assistants on staff, I am delighted to recommend this wonderful book by Fred Volkmar and Lisa Wiesner. Both of these talented professional leaders have combined their scientific skills and understanding of the field with great practical experience and ideas about how research can be translated into clinical practice. The result is a book that provides the best and most comprehensive information about recent scientific developments and a splendid practical guide for how they are being implemented and what we are learning in the process. The issues are presented in all of their complexity but translated into language that is clear, direct, and easy to follow. The format also lends itself to understanding the complex issues and their implications through excellent charts, question and answer sections, and chapters that vary from describing diagnostic issues to stating very specifically how to expand and evaluate the services one is receiving. The comprehensive references and lists of additional resources also add greatly to the overall package. As a professional dedicated to understanding scientific advances and helping families and teachers to utilize them most effectively, I am very pleased to have an ally like this book available. I am very grateful to the authors for providing a very credible, practical, and relevant addition to our field to help the many advocates and family practitioners to better understand the exciting new developments and how they can be implemented in our day to day work. Those taking the time to read through this superb volume will find it time well spent that pays back dividends in many different ways. FOREWORD by Gary B. Mesibov, Ph.D., Professor and Director of TEACCH, Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Communication Development Profile CDROM $$$ as of Jan 2014

Charlotte Child

This practical CD-ROM resource provides a simple, shared framework to help speech & language therapists work more effectively with the families, carers and teachers of children with severe and profound learning disabilities. The Profile immediately improves the way therapists support and advise teachers and families, and consequently results in a more united and holistic approach towards the child's development. This practical CD-ROM resource provides a simple, shared framework to help speech & language therapists work more effectively with the families, carers and teachers of children with severe and profound learning disabilities. The Profile immediately improves the way therapists support and advise teachers and families, and consequently results in a more united and holistic approach towards the child's development. It provides a clear descriptive breakdown of five key areas of language and communication development from birth to the development and use of grammatical sentences. Areas are: - Attention - Comprehension (what the child understands) - Expression (how the child communicates) - Sound system - Use of communication (what and why the child communicates). The Profile also: - Enables information from formal assessments and informal observations and experiences to be combined to jointly identify and/or to explain the child's stage of development for each key area. - Gives a visual representation of the child's skills and allows the therapist to directly compare the stage of development of each area, and to identify the child' strengths and weaknesses. - Establishes the communicative phase that the child is in and clearly illustrates the most appropriate style of intervention to best support the child's strengths and weaknesses. - Reduces dissatification and misunderstandings when identifying targets and setting activities with both teachers and families, and in agreeing speech and language provision. This profile is an essential tool for all therapists working with children with learning disabilities. It improves multi-disciplinary assessments; enables parents to have an informed and genuine role; makes target setting in educational settings directly relevant to the curriculum; expands on the P-Levels and better describes them; and enables the therapist to explain their thought processes, which all lead to better goal-setting and a cohesive communication development strategy for the child. Age: 0-5 Chapters - Introduction - Resources and terminology - Communication phases and intervention - Attention control - Development of intentionality - Comprehension - Expression - Speech sound development - Use of communication skills - Joint attention, interaction and communication - Appendices

Axel Seemann

Academic interest in the phenomenon of joint attention the capacity to attend to an object together with another creature has increased rapidly over the past two decades. Yet it isnt easy to spell out in detail what joint attention is, how it ought to be characterised, and what exactly its significance consists in. The writers for this volume address these and related questions by drawing on a variety of disciplines, including developmental and comparative psychology, philosophy of mind, and social neuroscience. The volume organises their contributions along three main themes definitional concerns, such as the question of whether or not joint attention should be understood as an irreducibly basic state of mind processes and mechanisms obtaining on both the neural and behavioural levels; and the functional significance of joint attention, in particular the role it plays in comprehending spatial perspectives and understanding other minds.

Lets Be Friends A Workbook

Shapiro Holmes

Building positive friendships is a critical part of a child's development. When adults look back on their childhoods, they rate their friendships as one of the most important factors in their happiness.But researchers report that half of children have difficulty making and keeping friends. These problems predispose them to lifelong relationship challenges. What's more, parents report that they rarely know what to do to help their children make friends. Social problems in childhood may lead to more serious problems in adolescence and adulthood, so it's wise to help your child with these skills now.The activities in this book offer you effective tools for helping your child become a better friend-maker. The activities in Let's Be Friends teach kids a wide variety of social skills including the making and keeping of new friends, finding friends with common interests, ways of coping with rejection, and tips for developing give and take in relationships. With practice, the skills in this book can help youngsters locate support during transitions, build self-esteem, and develop into healthy, resilient adults

Were pleased to announce the release of a second edition of the More Than Words guidebook. As a valued customer we wanted to tell you a little about the new edition The changes to the second edition were small but important. Most changes centred around parents use of telegraphic speech ie the omission from sentences of the small, grammatical words or fragments such as is the and ing words. Since Hanen no longer recommends the use of telegraphic speech we ve removed all instances of such language from talk bubbles and other examples throughout the book. These have been replaced with more natural models for how parents should talk to their child.

Rick Warren

Early diagnosis and early intervention are both important factors in the lifelong success of those diagnosed. Quinn at School is based on vignettes that reflect the social challenges (interacting with classmates, greeting teachers, playground politics, art class, library visits, etc.) preschool and kindergarten children with social deficiencies face each school day. Many children, not just those with an autism spectrum disorder, have difficulty initiating or sustaining social contact, and this highly visual picture book helps children do just that, using examples from environments and situations they are familiar with. In addition to being used as a lap book, Quinn at School comes with a free CD that includes the book in a digital PDF format, which allows children to advance the pages on a computer, keeping them highly engaged and making the resource dually effective. For classroom use, the digital format may be converted for use with a Mimio whiteboard or SMART notebook system. A fun poster is included, making this a perfect educational tool.

The CBT Handbook Cognitive behavior Therapy

Dr Catherine Evans-Jones

A comprehensive resource of photocopiable worksheets to aid therapeutic intervention. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) aims to help people overcome their emotional difficulties through helping them identify and change their thoughts and behaviour. CBT has been evaluated for a wide range of presenting problems and evidence of its efficacy found for depression, panic, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This eminently practical book provides more than 80 A4 photocopiable worksheets for cognitive behavioural therapists to use with clients. As well as covering the fundamental techniques of CBT, it supplies worksheets specific to presenting problems, such as OCD, panic and worry. Worksheets are essential tools in CBT. They record events and patterns, provide new information, and suggest new ways of thinking and acting. When and how to use a worksheet is determined by a number of factors: the formulation, the stage in therapy, the current focus of treatment, the reading and writing ability of the client and the wishes of the client. The use of worksheets in CBT is an ongoing learning process for both therapists and clients. This is a fantastic resource for all clinicians working within the cognitive behavioural model. Age: 13+

The Conversation Train A Visual Approach to Conversation for Children on the Autism Spectrum

This inventive color picture book uses the metaphor of a train to teach basic conventions of conversation to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Locomotives are like greetings; they get the train going. Train cars are like different speakers' turns; it is good to have at least a few when you are in conversation. A switch track is like a tactful change in the topic of conversation. When a conversation veers off-topic it is like a derailed train. As well as attractive color photographs of trains, the book contains engaging fill-in-the-blank worksheets and coloring pages to help promote skill generalization. This highly visual approach to conversation is ideally suited to children with ASDs aged approximately 5-13.

Given the serious consequences that can befall a person who violates a social rule, the strategies discussed here make this a much-needed resource.

The Incredible 5-Point Scale Book

Kari Dunn Buron, Mitzi Curtis

Assisting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Understanding Social Interactions and Controlling Their Emotional Responses.
In this must-have resource, 'two teachers from Minnesota' share their successful use of the simple concept of 5-point scales to help students understand and control their emotional reactions to everyday events that might otherwise set in emotion escalating reactions. Whether it is inappropriate touching, obsessions, yelling, hitting or making hurtful statements to classmates, this clearly illustrated book shows how to break down a given behavior and, with the student's active participation, develop a unique scale that identifies the problem and, just as important, suggests alternative, positive behaviors at each level of the scale.

Kari Dunn Buron

What does kissing under the mistletoe, standing too close to a classmate, and feeling embarrassed have in common? They all, in some way, play a role in social skills development. Students with social cognitive disorders need social skills training just as much as they need math, reading, and writing classes. However, it is difficult to integrate this much-needed training into already full schedules. In addition, many of the social skills programs available do not offer lessons that are relevant to the lifestyles of students today. Students find them outdated or simply boring.
