Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew

Postby achievebeyondusa » Wed Sep 01, 2010 10:30 am

We at the pediatric therapy and autism services company Achieve Beyond were looking for a book that be a good reference book to help us administer our developing autism program informational workshop in our Illinois branch. We came across this book entitled "Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" because it was highly rated, had excellent customer reviews and came first in our search results on Amazon.com. The title sounded like the book would contain information that would be relevant to parents. This book not only provided vital information that families should know, but it also brings in many concepts that professionals in the business can digest as well.

The things we liked most about "Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" was the personal but professional tone the book was written in and it's focus on sensory issues. The author Ellen Notbohm uses a positive and uplifting tone throughout the book that makes the readers like parents with autistic children to become personally vested in the book and allows for the concepts she is presenting to be easily digested. She addresses working with sensory issues and this happens to be one of the main components of our Illinois facility. We at Achieve Beyond also believe that finding the sensory issue plays a critical role in providing the correct therapy / services to the child. Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" gave us fresh ideas on how to present this principal in our workshop to parents that would be attending. We also loved the sections on visual strategies for children to help them progress through the days. These ideas were extremely relevant and effective in autism treatment. Ten Things also addresses ways of speaking to autistic children, how to deal with child temper tantrums effectively and most importantly how to always maintain a positive outlook on life with an autistic child no matter how frustrated you can get at times.

"Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" by Ellen Notbohm is an excellent book on Autism that parents, educators and therapists should seriously consider purchasing. It not only addresses physical actions that can be done with your child to help deal with autistic behaviors but it describes the mentality that is needed at the hardest time to help parents effectively deal with the frustrations and stress they may be experiencing.
