Declarative language handbook : using a thoughtful language style to help kids with social learning challenges feel competent, connected, and understood / by Murphy, Linda K.,

Publication: . 119 pages ; 22 cm

Our neurodivergent person very much struggles with questions in general. He expresses being unsettled when others so much as ask him his name. This handbook provides strategies based on very simple ideas : I am thinking aloud and in this way inviting him to observe and think with me. We are observing positive improvements within our incident attempts so far. His sibling also seems to benefit from it.

What happens when someone in my family has Down syndrome / by Keppeler, Jill

Publication: . 24 pages : 22 cm

A fantastic book! I know when our baby was given his diagnosis one of the first things that started to go through my mind was how will this affect his siblings. We used this book to explain more to our 9 year old and to actually tell our 7 and 5 year olds that their new baby brother has Down Syndrome and what that meant. I loved how it empowers the siblings too.

Gross motor skills for children with Down syndrome : a guide for parents and professionals by Winders, Patricia C.

Publication: Bethesda, MD Woodbine House 2014 . xxx, 521 pages : 26 cm Date: 2014

The autism-friendly guide to periods / by Steward, Robyn

Publication: . 94 pages : 25 cm

Great- pitched at the right level- doesn't talk down to kids but not too wordy. Great pictures- able to pick up and put down- able to discuss and ask questions.

Educator's experience of Pathological Demand Avoidance : an illustrated guide to pathological... demand avoidance and learning. by Kerbey, Laura.

Publication: . 128 pages 22 cm

Brilliant- just what we needed. Reassuring to families who may be feeling overwhelmed. It does what it says on the back cover. More of an introduction to coping and gentle explanation rather than text book style. Solutions are scattered throughout and "optional" main message is you're okay and they're okay. Recommend to families with a new diagnosis and a few years on in the journey.

The teacher's introduction to pathological demand avoidance : essential strategies for the classroom / by Truman, Clare,

Publication: . 171 pages : 23 cm

This is a great book. Gives some insight and some solutions. Examples can stimulate own generation of answers. This should be read with the book about PDA, "The family experience of PDA" so the school can get the complete picture of the child's needs.

This is ADHD : an interactive and informative guide / by Moriah, Chanelle

Publication: . 144 pages : 25 cm

A must read for every parent, teacher or ADHDer. Chanelle's honest explanations and simple language make it easier to read and comprehend terms that in the literature are very hard. I specially like their explanations of proprioception, vestibular system and interoception. Their own experience with medication helps us parents try and comprehend how our kids might feel while on the meds. An outstanding book. I will buy my own copy!

This is a great book. Really gets into the autistic mind and tells it like it is. Great for parents and anyone wanting to understand autism. Emphasises not trying to change autistic people to fit the world but rather make changes to the world to meet the needs of autistic people.
