Présentation de l'éditeur

Autism affects more than 1 million children and adults in the United States, and parents may be confused by the behavior of autistic children. This book provides help–and hope–by explaining the differences between various types of autism and delivering the lowdown on behavioral, educational, medical, other interventions. Featuring inspiring autism success stories as well as a list of organizations where people who support those with autism can go for additional help, it offers practical advice on how to educate children as well as insights on helping people with autism use their strengths to maximize their potential in life.

Stephen Shore, EdD (Brookline MA), serves on the board for several autism spectrum–related organizations and he has written Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome (1–931282–00–5) and edited Ask and Tell: Self Advocacy and Disclosure For People on the Autism Spectrum (1–931282–58–7).
Linda G. Rastelli (Middletown, NJ) is a veteran journalist who specializes in health and business.
Temple Grandin, PhD (Fort Collins, CO) is the author of the bestselling Thinking in Pictures (0–679–77289–8) and Emergence: Labeled Autistic (0–446–67182–7).

HASH(0x96effe10) étoiles sur 5 You need not be Dummies to benefit from this book 4 octobre 2006
Par Kristi A. Sakai - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Finally! A book that gives a clear overview of pretty much every aspect related to autism spectrum disorder: from "classic autism" to Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism. It covers diagnosis, medical and biochemical interventions, sensory issues, learning environments, education, social skills and relationships from pre-school through adulthood. And much more! How can one book address so many topics on one book? Even I'm dumbfounded it can be done...and I guess that's the point. It's Autism for Dummies, which means it gives the briefest most concise explanation. It is written in a clear and understandable manner than ANYONE can simply pick it up, scan through it and get a good handle on what autism is. This is an excellent reference book that every school and parent should have in their library to quickly thumb through for a quick explanation. I, as a parent of three children with ASD, have purchased SEVEN copies (so far!); one for myself to use a continual quick reference book, and 6 others for the professionals who work with my kids.

Do you have relatives or people who work with your child who are always asking you questions you are having difficulty explaining? It's not that you don't know the answers! (Because, of course you DO). It's that sometimes the explanation is complicated and uses terminology they aren't familiar with. Autism for Dummies can provide the simple explanations for you, or you can pass the book on to those with questions and let Grandma or teacher peruse at will. My personal recommendation is to hand it over with little self-deprecating humor saying something akin to, "Well I finally found a book that explains autism to me!" (As if you aren't really the expert you are!) And offer to share it.

The book itself stands alone, but I find further solace in the fact that I can trust the information is accurate because one of the co-authors is Stephen Shore, an international presenter and author on the subject of autism and Asperger Syndrome, and he just so happens to be an individual with autism himself. Temple Grandin wrote the foreward and believe me when I say that if Temple didn't approve of the information in this book, she wouldn't have put her stamp of approval on it by contributing. Her standards are high. It's an excellent resource and I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x96effe64) étoiles sur 5 A very complete and helpful guide... 20 septembre 2006
Par Grandma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Over the past three years since we began to suspect my grandson was autistic, I have accumulated a large library on the subject. Many of the books covered or advocated specific types of treatment, or information on school special education, or finances and autism, or possible causes, or personal success stories or even stories of acceptance when success didn't happen. This book covers them all, and more, and does it well. I'm getting another copy for my son and daughter-in-law, although by now they are experts, not dummies.. This is a really EXCELLENT contribution to the available literature on this increasingly common developmental condition. Don't miss it!

HASH(0x97a7915c) étoiles sur 5 What an invaluable resource! 28 janvier 2007
Par Billie R. Hoch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Whether you are new to the world of autism or you are a "veteran" reader/researcher, this book is a must have. It is comprehensive, yet easy to read. This book is an invaluable resource for parents and educators. As an elementary special educator, I plan to keep this book in my classroom for easy reference for regular education teachers, counselors, and administrators. I recommend it to all the parents of my autistic students. As a grad school student, I have recommended it to the college as required reading for preservice special education teachers. As a parent, of an autistic child, I plan to purchase an extra copy and make sure that my son's school has this book in their library. I just wish this book had existed when my son was first diagnosed!

Congratulations to Stephen Shore for providing this guide!

HASH(0x97a79684) étoiles sur 5 The best resource I have found for understanding autism 13 décembre 2006
Par Bryan Newman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When my friend's son was diagnosed with ASD I started reading anything I could find either on-line or in print. There seemed to be either simplistic articles for mass audiences or very involved technical or specific articles. Recently, I was fortunate to pick up a copy of this book because it has been the single most comprehensive and accessible reference I have found.

If you have recently had a family member diagnosed, you should pick up a couple of copies and pass them around to grandparents, uncles and aunts, friends of the family and siblings. The book focuses on the parents of a newly diagnosed child, supporting what they are feeling and laying out options and expectations. This is something I have found lacking in other resources, but this probably is the most important information you would be looking for at this time.

The book is very complete in it's coverage of the entire autistic spectrum and constantly refers to other great resources to research further. All in all, this is simply the best introduction to autism out there right now. But it is much more than just a shallow introduction to the subject but should be a lasting resource you can go back to.

HASH(0x97a7969c) étoiles sur 5 Great "starter" book 9 janvier 2007
Par Dianna McGaughey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is excellent to get you started on autism research. I found it to be extremely good for my son's teachers and others that may not know anything about autism at all. It covers the basics with balance between the different types of autism. I would have liked to see more on general developmental disorders like PDD-NOS but other than that it is great. My church will be using it along with several other books as a resource to get our special needs ministry started.
