B 97037B 97037 100 Things Guys Need to Know
Grade Lvl: T Author: Zimmerman, Bill
Length: 121 Copyright: 2005

Boys need and want advice on all kinds of issues, for all kinds of problems, questions, and concerns. Often, they don’t know who or how to ask, and it seems to them that most self-help books are written for girls. Everything about this book is for and about guys. Graphic-novel-style illustrations engage even reluctant readers. Quotes from real boys, results from a nationwide survey, inspiring stories, facts, and anecdotes keep them interested. Journaling prompts invite boys to think about each topic and what it means to them—from family life to fitting in, showing emotions, bullies, school, peer pressure, failure, handling anger, and more. Positive, practical, and affirming, 100 Things is just what boys need in a world of mixed messages on what it means to be male.

For many administrators and educators working in early childhood programs, inclusion is filled with complex and puzzling issues. Administrators hold a powerful role in creating and maintaining inclusive classrooms for young children. The purpose of this guide is to address some of the issues raised by the administrators of these inclusive settings. We discuss the barriers and roadblocks these administrators encountered as they set up inclusive programs and then worked to keep them going successfully. We present practical strategies that emerged from our work and we also draw upon the larger literature and work of others. In places, we introduce some of the people who, through their stories and experiences, illustrate how to make high quality early childhood inclusion a reality.

Length: 288 Copyright: 2006

The author, Richard Lathe, contends that the rise in cases of ASDs is a result of increased exposure to environmental toxicity combined with genetic predisposition. Proposes that autism is a disorder of the limbic brain, which is damaged by toxic heavy metals present in the environment. Lathe argues that most ASD children have additional physiological problems and that these, far from being separate from the psychiatric aspects of ASD, can produce and exacerbate the condition. This text provides a closely-argued scientific case for the involvement of both environmental and physiological factors in autism. Lathe's argument will also have a direct impact on treatment strategies and options. Brain physiopathology. Autism--Pathophysiology. Autism-- environmental aspects. Environmental Exposure.

The author explores the science of autism, including how it is diagnosed, the best treatments, and theories of possible causes, interwoven with Grandin's own experience with new discoveries in neuroimaging and genetic research, even sharing her own brain scans from numerous studies. Introduces the scientists and self-advocates who are exploring innovative theories of what causes autism and how we can diagnose and best treat it. Grandin also highlights long-ignored sensory problems and the transformative effects we can have by treating autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. She argues that raising and educating kids on the spectrum isn’t just a matter of focusing on their weaknesses; in the science that reveals their long-overlooked strengths, she shows the ways to foster their unique contributions. She warns parents, teachers and therapists of the danger of getting locked into diagnostic labels.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Gray, Carol

Carol Gray combines stick-figures with "conversation symbols" to illustrate what people say and think during conversations. Showing what people are thinking reinforces that others have independent thoughts―a concept that spectrum children don't intuitively understand. Children can also recognize that, although people say one thing, they may think something quite different―another concept foreign to "concrete-thinking" children. Children can draw their own "comic strips" to show what they are thinking and feeling about events or people. Different colors can represent different states of mind. These deceptively simple comic strips can reveal as well as convey quite a lot of substantive information. The author delves into topics such as: What is a Comic Strip Conversation?

Grade Lvl: KP Author: Roman-Lantzy, Christine
Length: 211 Copyright: 2007

The current leading cause of visual impairment among children is not a disease or condition of the eyes, but cortical visual impairment (CVI)-also known as cerebral visual impairment-in which visual dysfunction is caused by damage or injury to the brain. The definition, nature, and treatment of CVI are the focus of great concern and widespread debate, and this complex condition poses challenges to professionals and families seeking to support the growth and development of visually impaired children. On the basis of more than 30 years' experience in working with hundreds of children of all ages with CVI, Christine Roman-Lantzy has developed a set of unique assessment tools and systematic, targeted principles whose use has helped children learn to use their vision more effectively. This one-of-a-kind resource provides readers with both a conceptual framework with which to understand working with CVI and concrete strategies to apply directly in their work.

It is a comprehensive curriculum that helps teachers achieve the very best program for children under three. If the interactions children have are nurturing, consistent, and loving, and the experiences they have are appropriately challenging, then infants, toddlers, and twos grow and flourish. In such an environment, children learn to trust and joyfully explore their surroundings, making discoveries and developing a sense of themselves as competent learners and caring human beings.

Enduring Issues in Special Education is aimed at any course in the undergraduate or graduate special education curriculum that is wholly or partly devoted to a critical examination of current issues in special education. The book organizes 28 chapters into seven sections using familiar structuring principles―what, who, where, how, when, why, and whither. Each section begins with an introduction that provides historical, legal, and theoretical background information and organizing commentary for the chapters that follow. The book’s objective, in addition to informing readers about the issues, is to develop critical thinking skills in the context of special education. Key features include the following: Dialectic Format – Each of the 28 chapters presents compelling reasons for addressing the issue at hand and specific ways to do so. Because each issue is written from different perspectives and focuses on a variety of aspects, readers are encouraged to weigh the arguments, seek additional information, and come up with synthesized positions of their own. Organizing Framework – The book’s seven sections have been arranged according to a scheme that is the essence of most investigative reporting and provides a coherent, easy-to-understand framework for readers. Expertise – All chapters are written by leading scholars who are highly regarded experts in their fields and conclude with suggested readings and discussion questions for additional study.

Choosing the most suitable intervention strategy to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) cope is difficult because there are a large number of theories, including TEACCH, Floor-time and ABA, and each child with autism presents differently. In this book, the authors argue that theory must be combined with data in order for it to be used effectively in developmental intervention. Aimed at professionals, as well as parents who want to be more involved in their child's development, the authors explain how to write basic developmental goals, how to collect data and analyze it and how to use the results of analysis to inform the next round of intervention decisions. A CD ROM provides a shortcut to setting up forms and guidance in their completion.

Grade Lvl: T Author: McHolm, Angela E / Cunningham, Charles E
Length: 171 Copyright: 2005

Often described as "social phobia's cousin" and misdiagnosed as autism, selective mutism is a debilitating fear of speaking in some situations experienced by some children. The disorder usually presents in children before the age of five, but it may not be recognized until the child starts school. When requested to speak, children with selective mutism often look down, blush, or otherwise express anxiety that disrupts their engagement with people and activities. Selective mutism is related to social anxiety and social phobia, and more than 90 percent of children with selective mutism also manifest symptoms of one of these problems. This book is the first available for parents of children with selective mutism. It offers a broad overview of the condition and reviews the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. The book details a plan you can use to coordinate professional treatment of your child's disorder. It also explains the steps you can take on your own to encourage your child to speak comfortably in school and in his or her peer group. All of the book's strategies employ a gradual, "stepladder" approach. The techniques gently encourage children to speak more, while at the same time helping them feel safe and supported.

I am Special is a workbook developed by Peter Vermeulen and already used extensively with young people with autism spectrum disorder. The workbook is designed for a child to work through with an adult - parent, teacher or other professional. Unlike other books, its content and layout are devised especially for children who read, think and process information differently. I am Special is divided into two parts. The first is a theoretical introduction that explains how to inform children that they have autism or Asperger Syndrome and how to use the worksheets with groups or individuals. The second part consists of a series of worksheets which the child works through with an adult to create a unique and personal book about him or herself. It includes a series of exercises that present autism positively. They strike a balance between general facts, information about autism and personal information, covering the strengths an autistic person may have as well as the difficulties they may face. I am Special can be used with young people over the age of ten years. Not only is it an excellent source of information for the autistic child; it can be the first step in a process of counselling or psychotherapy or the springboard for a discussion group on autism.

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often demonstrate significant deficiencies in social interaction and social communication skills, so it is critical to understand and develop interventions which directly address these needs.

This book addresses the primary issues of social development in children with ASD by emphasizing the underlying theoretical and pragmatic considerations. Dr. Cotugno employs concepts and theories of group therapy and cognitive-development and integrates them with skill-based instructional approaches to develop the comprehensive Social Competence Enhancement Program (SCEP). This peer-based, group-focused program is explained in detail, including a step-by-step guide to its implementation and a full range of tasks and activities that can be used by practitioners at each stage of the process.

The authors use the term "autism/mental retardation" to refer to people who from early childhood have had significant difficulty in communication, controlling their behaviors and making themselves understood in standard ways.They suggest that many of their challenges come from movement differences. They stress that each person is unique and must be understood & supported in a very individual way. Anne Donnellan and Martha Leary demonstrate the neglected discipline of seeking a new pattern of understanding. They note anomalies, irregularities likely to be ignored or explained away in routine practice: irregularities such as the many accommodations people with disabilities have invented beneath the notice of the professionals who ordinarily control their treatment.

Oppositionalism as a specific characteristic of personality was, apparently, described first in 1921 by Hermann Rorschach, "Tendency to opposition," as he called it has remained a diagnostic factor in the Rorschach method of interpreting responses to ink blot, but has otherwise received little serious study by psychologists and psychiatric circles; UNTIL NOW. This book is the product of clinical work with children under the Louisiana Department of Hospitals' Evaluation Center for Exceptional Children and the Louisiana Department of Health's Division of Maternal and Child Health, vocational and educational counseling of adults a the Tulane University Guidance Center, with Social Science Consultants in New Orleans, with the New Orleans Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, work at the University of Guam Counseling and Testing Center, and psychological research with the New Orleans Protestant Home for Babies. Although all of these professional experience have contributed significantly the the formulation of the specific ideas contained in this book, the most crucial has been the Mental Health Clinic held monthly and semi-monthly over an eight year period at the West Baton Rouge Parish Unit in Port Allen, Louisiana, under the Louisiana Department of Health. Children referred to this clinic were given physical and psychological examinations, their parents and teachers were interviewed, and the findings discussed by staff. As conclusions were reached, lengthy interpretive discussions were held with the parents, often involving several sessions." This book, The Oppositional Child is a combination of those discussions, sessions and logical conclusions while providing behavioral guidelines and help for those who find themselves living with an oppositional child.
