The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules: The Handbook of Not-So-Obvious Social Guidelines for Tweens and Teens with Asperger Syndrome

Being a teen or tween isn't easy for anyone -- but it's especially tough for Asperkids. I know. I was one, I taught a whole bunch, and I am going to be raising three! That's also why I know that Asperkdis deserve their very own guide to all of the hidden social rules that are awfully confusing to us, even if they seem obvious to everyone else. "The Asperkids' (Secret) Rule Book of Social Rules." This isn't your momma's Emily Post, and there is no "don't do this" finger-wagging or patronizing "high and mighty preaching" here. Instead, the "Secret" Book gives Asperkids (aged 10-17) respectful, funny insights written "for Aspies by an Aspie." Chock full of illustrations, logic and even a practice session or six (in comic strip style, thank you very much!), this is the handbook every adult Aspie wishes we'd had growing up, but never did.

The Warner Boys: Our Family’s Story of Autism and Hope

An emotional, revealing memoir of one family’s life in seclusion—and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it. Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt’s retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys.
Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, it’s a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other—no matter how challenged—is the path to healing and peace.

Words I Wish Someone Had Said to Me As a Kid

I wrote this book of encouraging words to help young people as they make their way in the world. Every girl and boy needs to hear such words. I know I did. You see, I lost my father when I was very young and missed hearing the words that a child needs to hear from his or her dad.Growing up, I tried hard to imagine the things he would have said to guide me if he were around. A few years ago, right before Father?s Day, I longed for my dad very much, and to seek comfort I began writing a letter from him to me, saying some of the things which I so wanted to hear?that he was proud of the person I had grown up to become and that he loved me very much.
Writing the letter helped me that day and I continued to write more letters in the voice of a father talking to a child. In time, these letters grew into this book to inspire children.
If you?re a young person reading this book, think of each page as a personal letter of caring words from me to you, like the ones an older friend or relative might say to you. I hope young readers will turn to the book whenever you need a good word or when you are feeling lonely or unsure. If you are a parent or teacher, you may find some of the thoughts offered echo what you may have said to a child in your life, or perhaps they will give you new ideas for future personal messages. You can also read and discuss the book?s thoughts with a young person.

Something To Write About

Author Bill Zimmerman created this book of writing prompts over the years teaching English language learners and literacy students. Its intent is to help students discover their writers' voices and express the rich thoughts within them as they master the English language. Students are encouraged to write about their family, their friends, their old life and their new life, feelings, dreams and goals.
These writing prompts encourage students of all ages to write about the things in their lives that are meaningful to them?their childhood memories and family stories, the people they love and admire, their hopes for the future, their deepest beliefs. Zimmerman says, "I have always believed that everyone has a story to tell?if only someone would ask, if only someone would listen." This book gives teachers a way to draw out students' stories and help them communicate their thoughts through writing. Encouraging immigrant students to write is so important because it helps them better weather the enormous stress they experience as they learn their hard-won English language and adjust to life in a new land far away from their original homes.

Pep Talks for When You Need Them

Who among us doesn?t need to hear warm, encouraging words from time to time ? even if we have to say them to ourselves? I know I do. I first began writing and giving myself pep talks during the many years I managed daily newspapers. Often, in the quiet of early mornings before work, I would compose the thoughts found in this book. They were a way to talk to myself, to find comfort and courage, to feel less alone as I began my day. Some of these pep talks were written to help me deal with the daily pressures of work; others were written as I struggled with personal problems that overwhelmed me at times. I badly needed such words to help bolster my spirit and maintain a sense of dignity and self-respect when I felt weak. My hope is that the good words in this book will be meaningful for you, too. In this book space is provided for you to record your own words of inspiration and support.

Stem Cell Therapy In Pediatric Neurological Disorders

There are some medical disorders that have remained very difficult to treat over the last many years. Pediatric neurological disorders like autism, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy have been some of them. All the advances in imaging, pharmacology and surgical techniques failed to make a significant dent in the quality of lives of these children. However in the recent few years there has been a development in the field of regenerative medicine whereby stem cell therapy has become available to us as a new treatment method . The biggest impact of stem cell therapy has been on the otherwise incurable pediatric neurological disorders. These are new and exciting times for pediatric neurology. With increasing research in this field and greater publications coming out showing the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy, a quantum shift is happening in our approach to these disorders . We have shifted from hopelessness to hope and from lack of options to the availability of multiple options in all aspects of their care. We can safely say now that "Stem cell therapy is an idea whose time has come"
