When Sara’s husband walks out on them, Sara’s world falls apart, and her mother-in-law, Barbara, is the only person she can turn to for help. But Barbara thinks Ruby’s problems are all in Sara’s head; that she just doesn’t know how to raise a child right.

Facing Autism: Giving Parents Reasons for Hope and Guidance for Help

Don't Let Autism Have the Last Word in Your Child's Life.
Perhaps one of the most devastating things you can learn as a parent is that your child has been diagnosed with autism. A multifaceted disorder, autism has long baffled parents and professionals alike. At one time, doctors gave parents virtually no hope for combating the disorder. But in recent years, new treatments and therapies have demonstrated that improvement is possible. With intensive, early intervention, some children have recovered from autism and have been integrated into school, indistinguishable from their peers.

Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders

This positive, straightforward book offers kids with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) their own comprehensive resource for both understanding their condition and finding tools to cope with the challenges they face every day. Some children with ASDs are gifted; others struggle academically. Some are more introverted, while others try to be social. Some get "stuck" on things, have limited interests, or experience repeated motor movements like flapping or pacing ("stims"). The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders covers all of these areas, with an emphasis on helping children gain new self-understanding and self-acceptance. Meant to be read with a parent, the book addresses questions ("What’s an ASD?" "Why me?") and provides strategies for communicating, making and keeping friends, and succeeding in school. Body and brain basics highlight symptom management, exercise, diet, hygiene, relaxation, sleep, and toileting.

Unfolding the Tent: Advocating for Your One-of-a-Kind Child

Using a proactive and positive approach, the author combines her personal and professional experiences to present a blueprint that parents of children with behavioral, attentional, developmental, and learning needs can follow to help their child reach his or her potential. Because these children do not follow a typical developmental plan, it is unrealistic to expect them to grow to become the best that they can be without careful attention to their unique needs and gifts. Using strategic planning methodology, Anne Addison introduces the Life Map, which draws upon the child s strengths while minimizing challenges. The exercises throughout the book encourage readers to examine their parenting style and their role in their child s life.

One Small Starfish: A Mother's Everyday Advice, Survival Tactics & Wisdom for Raising a Special Needs Child

Anne Addison was overwhelmed when she brought Jack home from the hospital. In those first few days, Anne had a vague intuition that something was not right. Two years later, Jack was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, speech and language delays, sensory integration problems, and subsequently, was found to have Asperger’s Syndrome. In this book, Anne shares the easy-to-implement strategies and solutions that she and her family found to the myriad of problems facing parents and those who work with children who are behaviorally challenging, from everyday life skills such as getting dressed and going to bed to crafting a circle of friends, effectively working with the school, encouraging hobbies and interests, and negotiating public situations. Winner of a Benjamin Franklin Award, One Small Starfish is a deep and compassionate story of one mother’s struggle and triumph to raise a child beyond what the world thought he could be.

Evidence of Harm: Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic: A Medical Controversy

In the 1990s reported autism cases among American children began spiking, from about 1 in 10,000 in 1987 to a shocking 1 in 166 today. This trend coincided with the addition of several new shots to the nation's already crowded vaccination schedule, grouped together and given soon after birth or in the early months of infancy. Most of these shots contained a little-known preservative called thimerosal, which includes a quantity of the toxin mercury.

A Practical Guide to Autism: What Every Parent, Family Member, and Teacher Needs to Know

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.

Inclusive Education for Children with Special Needs

Inclusive education is a worldwide movement aiming to create one education system that values all children--to devise a classroom that welcomes all children irrespective of disability, community background, sexuality, ethnic background etc. The current conceptualization of Children with Special Needs has replaced the negative labels of the past which called disabled children as lame, crippled, less fortunate or mentally retarded. The modern concept consider such children as unique whose uniqueness may be noticed in one or the other dimensions--vision, hearing, communication, adaptive behaviour, etc. Researches are being conducted across the world so that inclusive education can be made more adequate and thereby prove more useful. The present book is a complete treatise on inclusive education with particular emphasis on children with special needs.

Waves of Healing: How Surfing Changes the Lives of Children with Autism

"“Stand up, up, UP!” is the mantra of Surfers for Autism, an organization that runs surf events for children with autism, providing the opportunity to not only catch waves, but to become part of a supportive surfing community.
It is also a message to all those struggling with autism: a message to stand up, no matter how hard it gets. Waves of Healing collects the stories of a group of everyday families who discovered Surfers for Autism in their search for hope, answers, and healing for their children with autism.
These are stories about the struggles children with autism face—the struggle to stand on a surfboard, the struggle to communicate, the struggle to make progress in a world which accepts “normal” and rejects all else. But they’re also stories of breakthroughs, of authentic joy and unbridled excitement as they learn to see their world from a whole new perspective—standing tall atop a surfboard, riding a wave all their own."
