The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled
Ellen Notbohm's child-centered approach to autism has had immeasurable effect on the autism community through her books Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, 1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew. A cohesive compilation of her best articles, The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled will help parents of children with autism take on everyday challenges while celebrating what their children bring to their world. Ellen offers advice on concrete issues such as math homework, video games, and tricky behavior, and also tackles the more abstract concepts of parenting: trusting parental instincts, when to take risks, how to hang on, and when to let go.
Finalist in the 2007 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards and finalist in the 2008 Eric Hoffer Awards, this book is absolutely invaluable to all who are on the autism trail.
