Description : "Working 13 years with students who are diagnosed with sever autism, my colleagues and I have often wanted to visualize and better understand what our students were seeing, feeling and thinking. Judy Endow's Painted Words takes us on a picturesque journey into the mind of one autistic person through her vivid and breathtaking paintings and sculptures while also explaining in detailed description and poetry what she sees and, via sensory, how she experiences it. Helpful suggestions for working with individuals on the spectrum open a treasure box of insights. Having this 'backstage pass' into autism will be priceless for educators, parents and individuals on the autism spectrum."--Joanna L. Keating-Velasco, educator, and author of A is for Autism, F is for Friend: A Kid's Book for Making Friends with a Child Who Has Autism. "Judy Endow combines her art, poetry, and prose to create a thought-provoking book of self-discovery that viscerally captures the essence of a world which only few experience- a world of subtle beauty that can turn too bright, loud, and overwhelming. The practical advice at the end of each chapter has helped me understand and be a better parent to my autistic child. Painted Words is a book to read, reread and share with other parents, educators, physicians, and therapists so they too can learn to appreciate the autistic experience. I'm buying it for all of my friends!." --Debra Hosseini, author of The Art of Autism: Shifting PerceptionsI. "Judy gives us a compelling view into her world through words crafted on the page, connected with images that illustrate her experience of being autistic. She encourages the neurotypical world to change their perceptions and assumptions about people with autism, to ask ourselves questions. Painted Words challenges our thinking, leading us to examine beyond what we see on the surface. Your view of autism is bound to shift after experiencing autism through Judy's words and paintings." - Maureen Bennie, Director, Autism Awareness Centre, Inc.

Description : Telling your child about their autism diagnosis can be daunting. Will they be better off for knowing? What's the right way to tell them? Should you inform anyone else too?

Description : Autism is in the public spotlight now more than ever as new research and information appears almost daily. Although in many ways this is a positive development it also presents challenges to families and practitioners who want to keep up with the latest developments and are left to sift through new information by themselves to see what is credible and relevant for them.Each of us needs a personal research assistant who can determine which information we need to pay attention to and let us know how it might affect our daily work and the children we are living with or serve. Since we each don’t have our own research assistants on staff, I am delighted to recommend this wonderful book by Fred Volkmar and Lisa Wiesner. Both of these talented professional leaders have combined their scientific skills and understanding of the field with great practical experience and ideas about how research can be translated into clinical practice. The result is a book that provides the best and most comprehensive information about recent scientific developments and a splendid practical guide for how they are being implemented and what we are learning in the process. The issues are presented in all of their complexity but translated into language that is clear, direct, and easy to follow. The format also lends itself to understanding the complex issues and their implications through excellent charts, question and answer sections, and chapters that vary from describing diagnostic issues to stating very specifically how to expand and evaluate the services one is receiving. The comprehensive references and lists of additional resources also add greatly to the overall package. As a professional dedicated to understanding scientific advances and helping families and teachers to utilize them most effectively, I am very pleased to have an ally like this book available. I am very grateful to the authors for providing a very credible, practical, and relevant addition to our field to help the many advocates and family practitioners to better understand the exciting new developments and how they can be implemented in our day to day work. Those taking the time to read through this superb volume will find it time well spent that pays back dividends in many different ways. —FOREWORD by Gary B. Mesibov, Ph.D., Professor and Director of TEACCH, Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Description : Autism is something a lot of people talk about these days. Many kids with autism have trouble communicating and understanding how people relate to each other. Since autism is a spectrum disorder, however, some kids who have autism might only have a few symptoms, while others may have many symptoms. Some people don't know how to act around kids who have autism, but, even though these children might seem a little different than most people, these kids are still kids.

Description : At the preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary levels, the needs of learners with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome (HFA/AS) are highly variable. Assessment of an individual child's needs is critically important for planning effective treatment. Treatment, in turn, must address the comprehensive needs of each learner. This is a formidable task that requires tremendous planning and the expertise of many professionals working jointly with parents. Practical Solutions for Educating Young Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome is designed to help parents and professionals address the unique challenges of these early learners by putting into place various kinds of support and assistance to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Further, to highlight practical applications, in each chapter of the book vignettes of “real” children illustrate the ideas and strategies introduced, culminating in two in-depth case studies that synthesize how the strategies described in the book can be used in combination to maximize success.

Description : Humanity is in a fast-forward stage of evolution. We saw this first with the Bridge Generation. For the past several decades, children are born into our world with various gifts and knowing – first introduced as Indigo Children and, as generations have passed, referred to as Crystalline Children, Star Children, and more. In these times, we bear witness to how consciousness and the minds of the future of humanity are changing in spectacular ways. This is a phenomenon that should not be ignored. Who are these amazing beings and why are they here? What is happening that causes some kids to remember where they came from, who they were in past lives, that they are natural healers, and so sensitive that they can’t keep still. How is it that they feel everything and can’t distinguish what feelings belong to them and what belongs to others? In this follow up to her bestselling book The Children of Now, Meg Losey revisits these spectacular children and discusses who they are becoming and how their growing influence is changing society for the better. The Children of Now Evolution addresses the following: • What is the magic of these children who embody unconditional love and have the foresight to see a new future for our people and our planet?• How do their minds work and why are they hyper-sensitive in some ways and desensitized in others?• Is our DNA changing and taking us into a new or different physiology?• What does autism, ADD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome have to do with Crystalline Children and Star Kids, if anything? Why are so many kids being drugged?• Why are so many young adults falling off the edge into darker, more destructive thoughts and actions – from self-abuse with drugs to hurting themselves and worse?• How are vaccines, GMO in our foods contributing to mutating human biology, particularly our DNA?• How are we – society, parents, caregivers and guardians – failing to give these kids what they need? How can we? What will it take?• How can we structure our schools to meet the needs of these kids? Instead of surviving their educations, how can we help them to thrive? Losey offers concrete information for parents, schools, and others to understand what these kids need and how to help them function and flourish. Too often these children are mislabeled as ADD or ADHD or worse. She also addresses the metaphysical realities that these children (and others) perceive. There may not be monsters in the closet or under the bed, but these highly-evolved children may actually be “seeing” things that their parents or caregivers cannot. Finally, she paints a picture of what our world will look like when the “Children of Now” take over. With new research and reports from the field The Children of Now Evolution is even more important to the families of today and tomorrow.

Description : An important component of Division TEACCH's mandate from the Department of Psychiatry of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and the North Carolina State Legislature is to conduct research aimed toward improving the understanding of developmental disabilities such as autism and to train the professionals who will be needed to work with this challenging population. An important mechanism to help meet these goals is our annual conference on topics of special importance for the understanding and treatment of autism and related disorders. As with the preceding books in this series entitled Current Issues in Autism, this most recent volume is based on one of these conferences. The books are not, however, simply published proceedings of conference papers. Instead, cer tain conference participants were asked to develop chapters around their pres entations, and other national and intemational experts whose work is beyond the scope of the conference but related to the conference theme were asked to contribute manuscripts as weil. These volumes are intended to provide the most current knowledge and professional practice available to us at this time.
