"This book is essential reading for parents, teachers, and young adults to help prevent cyber abuse. Jed Baker gives good, practical advice " -Dr. Temple Grandin, author of The Way I See It and The Autistic Brain.
The digital world offers a wonderful way to communicate and socialize with others. Yet, it is also rife with the dangers of being victimized emotionally, physically, and financially. Trusting individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who are oftentimes socially isolated, are especially vulnerable to online predators. Finally, we have a resource to help prepare them for the minefields they may encounter on the Internet.
In this much-needed book, Dr Baker presents three main areas of concern for our kids, including
cyber bullying; online sexual predators; and internet scams.
Through Dr. Baker's invaluable advice, kids will learn what to look out for, who to avoid, and how to protect themselves when they're communicating online.
