Reviews for Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew
Easy to read and to the point
I really enjoyed this book as I felt it outlined the difficulties most individuals with ASD face in an easy to understand way. It was not heavy but was insightful into ASD.
I have also read this authors other books - in fact i own them all as i find her very easy to relate to.
Ellen is another parent with a passion to spread the word about ASD by Karen Glenny
From what i've heard...
I must admit that I haven't actually read this book so was a bit doubtful about whether to write a review.
However from what I have heard, this book has been really helpful, particularly to adults working with children with autism, who haven't had a lot of experience in this area. Some of the key ideas were also shared in a school assembly in a school that was trying to become more autism friendly.
This book is on my list of books to read but I hope that helps. by J Bedford
one way of looking at it.
this book started off pretty good. as a parent of a child with asd it really didnt touch on anything i didnt already know. i felt it was quite text book at times and not easy for everyone to read. sorry. by a Book Depository customer
