Product description

'Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail' - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Ellen Notbohm's child-centered approach to autism is already having immeasurable effects on the autism community through her books "Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew", "1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders", and "Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew". A cohesive compilation of her best articles, "The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled" will help parents of children with autism take on everyday challenges while celebrating what their children bring to their world. Ellen offers advice on concrete issues such as math homework, video games, and tricky behavior, and also tackles the more abstract concepts of parenting: trusting parental instincts, when to take risks, how to hang on, and when to let go. This book is absolutely invaluable to all who are 'on the autism trail'.

Review quote

"I have been working as an educator/therapist with children with autism for five years now and I feel a deep resonance with Ellen's books, as the writings are based on the same system of belief that I have always tried to work from." Lindsay Ronald, intervention therapist
