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.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Lathe, Richard
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.

Finding out that your child has Asperger's Syndrome or Autism can be devastating enough, but when you discover that he or she won't eat 99.9 per cent of all food and drink in the known universe, the fun really starts.

Her book was written to reassure other parents that there are lots of people out there in the same boat, and to suggest practical methods of dealing with the problem. As well as drawing on her own experience, the author has spoken to parents, children, and professionals with first-hand knowledge of dietary difficulties, and their advice and comments form a key part of the book.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Gray, Carol
Length: 39 Copyright: 1994

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: T Author: Dana, Terese / Meisel, Bradford
Length: 56 Copyright: 2005

Gives children an innovative way to work through and release their disappointment through guided categorization. This visual support strategy prompts children to organize information into conceptual groupings to help them understand the reason behind the emotions they are feeling. It provides a structure to analyze the root of their disappointment, file it away, review the situation with an adult, and focus on the positive by identifying situations that worked out as they had hoped. Many children with emotional and behavioral difficulties need strategies to help them learn how to regulate their responses when faced with disappointment. Helping children regulate their emotions is an important goal. Children who can't bounce back from disappointment tend to externalize blame and can become vulnerable to rage and depression. Parents, teachers and therapists can incorporate this tool to help children in elementary and middle school deal with everyday disappointments. The File Factor has been used to help improve the coping skills of children diagnosed with high functioning autism, aspergers, PDD, NLD and ADD as well as children who are easily frustrated, depressed, anxious, shut down, externalize blame or have developed a sense of being a victim.

People with Asperger's Syndrome have difficulty with interpersonal relationships, yet are well known to be loyal and dependable friends. Wendy Lawson felt she had a knack for upsetting people and was surprised to be told that she 'did friendship rather well'. In her frank and thoughtful analysis of what makes and breaks friendships, she explores what it means to have friends or be a friend - even a friend to oneself; what happens when times are tough and friends are scarce; whether one can be a 'good friend' without effort; and what other kinds of friendships there are, whether imaginary, animal or inanimate. These ideas are accompanied by practical examples, poetry and stories.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Lehman, Jill Fain / Klaw, Rebecca
Length: 250 Copyright: 2003

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.

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.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Cotugno, Albert J
Length: 367 Copyright: 2011

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 explores the core areas of ASD development and related deficits, and introduces a practical program to assess and remediate these social competency issues. 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. This book will be a valuable resource for teachers, clinicians and all other professionals working with children with ASD who are interested in using group interventions as a means to improve social competency and treat social skills deficits.

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.

By providing a CD and book now you can print as many strategies you want onto standard labels and flipbooks and save the formatted stickers in Word for your student. You can still print from formatted strategies in the included book. A popular tool, the previous book included actual stickers, making it expensive to print. This CD/book package is half the first version's price and more versatile! While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (Asperger's, high-functioning autism, ADHD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder - a more powerful teacher than an adult's "nag." This CD/book package allows for a student to learn a strategy presented in the book, then the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flipbook with him/her throughout the day. With the flipbook, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies s/he already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions, while teaching self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere. This is a great tool for a student who recognizes his/her weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students who either don't realize that they need improvement or who aren't motivated to help themselves. Enhanced strategies include those for: Asking for Help; Emotions and Problem Solving; Organization, Writing and Homework; Group Work; Social Thinking; Family Time - Home Strategies This innovative tool is best for 3rd grade to 12th grade students.

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.

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a gifted animal scientist who has designed one third of all the livestock-handling facilities in the United States. She also lectures widely on autism—because Temple Grandin is autistic, a woman who thinks, feels, and experiences the world in ways that are incomprehensible to the rest of us. In this unprecedented book, Grandin delivers a report from the country of autism. Writing from the dual perspectives of a scientist and an autistic person, she tells us how that country is experienced by its inhabitants and how she managed to breach its boundaries to function in the outside world. What emerges in Thinking in Pictures is the document of an extraordinary human being, one who, in gracefully and lucidly bridging the gulf between her condition and our own, sheds light on the riddle of our common identity.
