Présentation de l'éditeur

"All children with autism have ways of dropping into their own world, leaving us behind for a minute, an hour, a day."

This is the essence of autism: a disorder that is, at its heart, about interaction. Many of the symptoms associated with autism come from either a lack of paying attention to other people or a lack of interest in joining in with the rest of the world.

Because this is the case, it is important that when you work with your child, you are addressing the core issue of autism: your child, for one reason or another, is not spending enough time in our interactive world.

What You Can Do Right Now to Help Your Child with Autism gives you the best techniques you can do ? right now ? to work with your child and draw him or her back into our interactive world.

The ten techniques in the book are not just explained in detail, they are also illustrated by true stories of Mr. Levy's work with children with autism (and their parents).

Topics include:

Don't React: How you respond to your child's behaviors can make all the difference. Learn why most people are ineffective in discouraging their child's 'problem' behaviors and how you can do it differently.

Make Eye Contact a Priority: Understand why eye contact is vital to your child's development and easy steps you can take to help your child to look more.

Join with the Stims: A different and powerful approach to your child's self stimulating and repetitious behaviors.

Respond Differently to Crying: Most of us give children great reasons to cry and act unhappy. Learn to teach your child a more effective way to communicate with you and the rest of the world.

Give Your Child as much Control as Possible: Most children with autism are told "No" much of the time by their parents, teachers, and family members. Make interacting with people more attractive to your child by allowing him to do more of what he wants and moving against him less.

Focus on Your Attitude: A hidden factor in your child's development is how you feel as you work with her. Learn why this is the case and how to feel better, more of the time.

Work One-On-One in a Non-Distracting Room: Why school isn't the best place for your child to develop and grow. Understand the three main factors in a successful educational environment.

Be Dynamic with Your Child: Enthusiasm matters to your child's growth. Learn the three tools you can use to demonstrate energy, excitement, and enthusiasm.

Get More Language: There are three categories of language ability, which does your child fit into? Master techniques that will enable your child to improve her speech, whatever her current level.

Make Sure Food Isn't Part of the Problem: An explanation of dairy and wheat intolerances, and why sugar isn't helping your child. Also, how to introduce new foods so he actually eats them.

When parents feel their world spinning out of control, What You Can Do Right Now to Help Your Child with Autism puts the power back in their hands to work with--and help--their child.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Advice to empower parents and caregivers...Fantastic!!! 20 septembre 2007
Par Frank and Nicole Seidel - Publié sur
Levy lays out 10 straight forward techniques to help those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (e.g., Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), PDD-NOS, Asperger's Syndrome, ...), as well as addresses parents' feelings/experiences with a special child and includes instructions on charting where a child is (in terms of eye contact, language, what a child is eating [GF/CF] and more). It forewarns the reader of the pitfalls of assuming that a child gives plenty of eye contact (chart it to be sure) or if a child is very verbal (are they really interacting in our world?)...we have all been on the phone with someone while answering emails and said just enough to convince the other person that we are really engaging with them ("really", "that's interesting", "go on"...), yet we are not really interacting with them.

This book is an enjoyable read...unlike some other books on autism, it is not burdened by heavy technical jargon that leaves the reader feeling inferior, rather Levy's book uses language to empower the reader. The book also has a website that has on-line video seminars. While this book ideally recommends a home-school setting, I still advise teachers to read it too. Because, lets face it, not everyone's circumstances allow them to keep their child home. So, if your going to be dealing with ASD kids, you will be far better off to have some real tools that will help you teach those in your care. We are getting our daughter back as a result of this approach. She is progressing by leaps and bounds in the areas of eye contact, verbal communication, sleep pattern, demeanor, and is now fully potty trained. This book is a MUST HAVE!!!!!!!

This is a very good guide for parents and teachers who wish to waste no time in treating their autistic child or student. The author "sells" his ideas very quickly and effectively with a powerful introduction. He's been there, seen the worst, done it and has numerous successes stories under his belt.

The 10 steps he recommends (listed and briefly explained in the synopsis) require very little preparation to execute. A few of the tips are obvious. Some are enlightening and some are downright controversial. Do they all work for all autistic children? Only reliable research data will reveal the whole and objective truth, but many of the exercises recommended by the author probably won't hurt. Some may even be very effective.

The wonderful thing about some of the author's insights is that a lot of his advice is good not just for autistic children but also for normal children who don't behave well. My only complaint is that there are probably more tricks than these that the author is not sharing with us yet.
