  A Language Manual for Children with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and Related Developmental Disorders. Teach Me Language was written because we saw the need for a book to provide specific language activities designed for children with autism, Asperger's syndrome, and other related pervasive developmental disorders. There are many books advocating one therapy method over another, as well as books chronicling a child's unexpected recovery from autism. A few of these books provide information on setting up therapy in the home; however, no books that we could find give hands-on, explicit instructions for working on the language needs specific to these children, despite that fact that delayed language is one of the most common and limiting symptoms of children with developmental disorders. This book is designed to do just that. Teach Me Language introduced exercises and drills that attack language weaknesses common to children with pervasive developmental disorders.
