Stemming from a wealth of both professional and personal experience, this guidebook combines real-life stories of challenges and successes with practical ideas for handling autism, every day. Autism consultant Alyson Beytien outlines over 150 tried-and-true techniques for home, school, and community.
Alyson's three boys cover the whole spectrum of autism--Asperger's syndrome, high-functioning autism, and classic autism. She understands the wide range of needs these children have and has discovered what helps and what hinders. Covering a full gamut of issues--from picky-eating and echolalia to IEPs and "The Woes of Walmart"--Alyson's ideas and interventions will inspire and inform all those who are connected to a person with autism. Alyson believes that each day brings more opportunities to learn, problem-solve, and celebrate the joys that children with autism bring to our world--after all, today's crisis is tomorrow's humor. Her family's motto will soon become your everyday mantra: "Improvise and Overcome "
