The Parents Guide to Teaching Kids with Asperger Syndrome and Similar ASDs Real Life Skills for Independence

by Patricia Romanowski Bashe

“It is important that parents and professionals have up to date information on how to understand and help someone who has Asperger syndrome. This book will provide an explanation of the latest theories and practical strategies. This book should be in every home library of every family that has a son or daughter with a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome.”  
–Dr. Tony Attwood, author of the The Complete Guide to Asperger Syndrome

Children with autism spectrum disorders learn differently. Too often, our kids’ choices are limited and their paths to success restricted, not by a lack of intellectual ability, but by deficits in acquiring, applying, and generalizing basic life skills. Success in school, at home, on the playground, and beyond depends on mastering countless basic living skills that most other kids just "pick up" almost by osmosis.

This book teaches parents how to teach these so-called easy skills to complex learners. This is the first book for parents and caregivers of kids with Asperger syndrome and similar learning profiles that features strategies based on applied behavior analysis—the most widely accepted, evidence-based, and effective teaching method for learners with ASDs— including how to:
• Identify critical skills appropriate for your child’s age—how to teach them and why.
• Learn new techniques that can replace, mimic, prompt, override, or impose missing order on your child’s learning style.
• Design a curriculum for your child that reduces reliance on prompts (including parents) and promotes new learning, new behaviors, and independence.
• Track your and your child’s success.
