Transform the way you parent with the workbook that “demystifies the day-to-day challenges of a son or daughter with autism by creating order and learning in their daily activities. In so doing, it creates hope.” Ami Klin, Ph.D., Yale Child Study Center

As the parent of a child with autism, you know how difficult it can be to simply get through the day. From getting dressed in the morning to brushing teeth before bed, raising a special needs child can turn ordinary events into extraordinary challenges. This book focuses on those kinds of everyday events.

Designed specifically for parents, this section introduces you to the exercises and activities you will be doing with your child. Everything is carefully explained, using lay terminology and simple illustration, including:

•Visual strategies
•User-friendly schedules
•Excursion plans

Hands-on activities in this section of the work-book will teach your child basic skills, using humor and time—tested educational techniques. On handy tear-out pages, these engaging games and exercises help your child learn how to:

•Recognize emotions
•Get dressed
•Read the clock
•Understand safety sights.
•Visit doctors, dentists, friends and family comfortably
And much more. . .
Philip Abrams is a father, husband, behaviorist, actor and writer. A graduate of UC Berkeley, he has a Masters in Special Education from National University in Los Angeles. Phil served as a technical advisor for autism on an episode of the “The District” and has also created a script about an autistic young man’s journey—the way he perceives the world differently, and how that difference changes others’ perceptions. It is his hope to see it brought to life on television.

Leslie Henriques, MPH, is a graduate of UC Berkeley. She received her Masters of Public Health degree from the University of Hawaii, Manoa. Leslie lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband, Ray Riegert, and two children, Alice and Keith. Her nephew Elijah Abrams has inspired her to publish books that empower parents of children with autism.

Lorna Wing, MD, an internationally recognized medical authority, has been studying autism for over three decades years. She is also the mother of an autistic daughter. Her work with autistic children in the 1970s redefined the classic profile of autism and helped create the concept of autistic spectrum disorders. Throughout her career, Dr. Wing has developed practical and constructive ways for parents to cope with the wide range of difficulties experienced by families caring for autistic children. She is the psychiatric consultant for the National Autistic Society in the United Kingdom and her numerous books and papers have been translated into several languages. She lives in East Sussex, England.
