Music for special kids : musical activities, songs, instruments and resources by Ott, Pamela

Publication: London Jessica Kingsley 2011 . 192 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. 29 Date: 2011

This is very helpful. The suggestions in this book were invaluable in putting together the 'rhythym bag' for the online resources I'm developing. The objectives for each activity were also useful. I would use this book again.

Dannie's dilemma : the shopping trip : the right shoes by Haldane, Carol

Publication: Brentwood Chipmunkpublishing 2008 . 65 p. ; 21 cm. 29 Date: 2008

Useful to give a bit of insight and easy to read but I had hoped for more. The continuous change in perspective (first to third person and back) is somewhat confusing and while Dannie's mum knows about her daughter's ASD she does not seem to have much understanding or appreciation for Dannie's struggles and challenges and tells her off or gets exasperated by standard ASD behaviour. The description of Dannie is also in parts overly stereotypical, probably to drive home a point, at times slipping out of the role (by using metaphors herself). E.g. Dannie misunderstands every idiom she comes across by taking it literal; the way she is described (grasp of language, independence skills, etc.) she would probably have learned at some point that idioms and figures of speech exist and would be aware that she has problems 'getting them'.
