A bestseller gets even better! Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative book in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book lists the top ten characteristics that help illuminate-not define-children with autism. Ellen's personal experiences as a parent, an autism columnist, and a contributor to numerous parenting magazines coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum. This updated edition contains expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social skills, and the critical roles adults play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient, productive life. A bonus section includes ten more essential, thought-provoking "things" to share with children as they cross the threshold of adulthood. This new edition is an even more resonant call to action, carrying the reader farther and deeper into understanding the needs and the potential of every child with autism!
