Kids on the Autism Spectrum

By: RS Jacobs

Parents of autistic children have many questions, and imaginably would like to have all of them answered. Sadly, autism and its many eccentricities are hard to pin down, and so some of those answers are not readily available to those who need them. This book, 1001 Great Ideas for Teaching & Raising Children with Autism and Asperger’s, is a great first step to helping those parents and teachers find answers to their questions. “1001 Great Ideas” covers such essential matters as sensory integration, communication and language, and behavior. It is a valuable resource  for daily life, social integration, and the learning environment.

Something very integral to the successful raising of these unique children is the understanding of sensory integration. These simple stimuli can make the other important tasks easy, or very difficult.  Shortly after opening the book, the parent or teacher seeking answers will find valuable information on how to best understand and accommodate the student’s specific needs. This segment covers special activities to keep the child interested in their activities by using their special senses, instead of working against them. 1001 Great Ideas for Teaching & Raising Children with Autism or Asperger’s has a great store of wisdom to give in these and other crucial concerns. Reading this book is a great idea.
