Product description

Framed with both humour and compassion, this book describes ten characteristics that help illuminate - not define - children with autism. This updated edition delves into expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social processing skills and the critical roles adult perspectives play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient and productive life.

Review quote

"The FIRST book you should read when your child is diagnosed. Written by a mum with fantastic insight into the world of autism, through the child's eyes, and having a son of her own with ASD really shines through in the book. It is an intelligent and empathetic book written FOR our children. Ellen Notbohm is an amazing mother and author! Have bought this book for ALL my family."--Trinny Holman, Queensland, Australia "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 "You have taught me so much about my nephew's world I could never have understood! I am so grateful for people like you who are blazing a trail for the children of tomorrow."--Cheryl Wheeler, university library technician
