The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders
This is a great resource which offers children with Autism Spectrum Disorders their own comprehensive manual to understand themselves and learn ways to cope with the challenges they face every day.
The emphasis is on helping children handle intense emotions and behaviours to gain new self-understanding and self-acceptance.
It is intended to be read with a parent and addresses questions such as "What is ASD?", "Why me?" and provides strategies for communicating, making and keeping friends, and succeeding in school. It highlights symptom management via exercise, diet, hygiene, relaxation, sleep, and toileting. Includes real stories from a child's perspective, fact boxes, helpful checklists and resources.
