This book provides help-and hope-by explaining the differences between various types of autism and delivering the lowdown on behavioral, educational, medical, other interventions.
This book presents a realistic picture of the positive and negative aspects of the transition to higher education as experienced by students with disabilities. It combines findings from special education studies, personal stories from individuals with disabilities, and practical tips to help those facing the challenges.
This long-awaited DVD brings the viewer into a frank dialogue between two individuals whose lives have been deeply impacted by autism spectrum disorders. Stephen Shore, an individual on the spectrum who is also a professional in the field of ASD, and Robert Naseef, a psychologist who works primarily with families of children with disabilities and the father of a son with autism, discuss the human costs and benefits of ASD.
Written entirely by autistic individuals, each chapter focuses on effective strategies for effective self-advocacy in the areas such as education, employment, and social service agencies.
Using an autobiographical structure Beyond the wall addresses areas such as educational strategies, teaching music to children on the autism spectrum, and describing what autism is like as well as successful navigation to adulthood in the areas of continuing education, employment, relationships and effective self advocacy.
