April is Autism Awareness Month

 Educating the Young Child with Autism Spectrum Resource Book
Due to a trend toward inclusion, increased incidence, and increased and broadening diagnosis, many teachers can expect to eventually teach a child with an autism spectrum disorder. Children with ASD can be challenging to teach especially in a busy, noisy, elementary classroom. The very nature of their problems causes them to struggle with communication and socialization affecting all aspects of their lives. This book helps guide teachers through all steps of introducing a student with ASD into their classrooms, participating on an IEP team, developing a welcoming classroom, fostering social development and communication, plus moving forward into the curriculum. A special section for parents is also included. 64 pages.

Creative Therapy for Children with Autism, AD/HD, and Asperger's Book
It is no easy task to find a teaching technique that can truly change the course of a child with special needs. Thirty years ago, when Janet Tubbs began working with children who had low self-esteem and behavioral problems, she developed a successful program using art, music, and movement. Believing that unconventional children required unconventional therapies, she then took her program one step further--she applied it to children with Autism, AD/HD, and Asperger's Syndrome. Her innovative methods and strategies not only worked, but actually defied the experts. In this new book, Janet Tubbs has put together a powerful teaching tool to help parents, therapists, and teachers work with their children.

The book is divided into four parts. Part One begins by introducing and explaining Janet's novel approach to teaching. Her goal is to balance the child's body, mind, and spirit through proven techniques. The next three parts provide a wide variety of exercises, activities, and games that are both fun and effective. Each is designed to reduce hyperactivity, increase and prolong focus, decrease anger, develop fine motor skills, or improve social and verbal skills. All are part of a program created to help these children relate to their environment without fear, anxiety, or discomfort.

Just because a child may appear stubborn and difficult, doesn't mean that the child isn't intelligent, curious, or creative. With the right approach, such a child can be reached, taught, and, hopefully, started on the road to improvement. The daily lessons provided in this book may be just what you and your child have been waiting for. 336 pages.
