Inhaltsangabe: Simple activities and exercises can help young children on the autism spectrum to live their lives to the full by improving their development and strengthening their skills. This easy-to-read book shows how parents or carers with no training can use ideas from occupational therapy to carry out simple activities with their child in everyday life. These activities and techniques can improve a child's sense of body awareness, coordination and motor skills, and address daily challenges such as dressing and healthy sleep. They also tackle social challenges including playing with friends, going on holiday and staying calm at school. For each case the authors provide a host of ideas for simple actions that can be incorporated into daily routines. The final chapter explains the different professionals parents are likely to encounter and how each can help their child. This jargon-free book unlocks the secrets of occupational therapy, and will be an essential toolkit for parents with a young child on the autism spectrum.
Rezension: 'This guide to incorporating occupational therapy techniques into routine activities combines the expertise of Jacobs, an occupational therapist, and Betts (superintendent, Boyertown Area Sch. District). It introduces readers to autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and describes how ASD can affect areas like body awareness and the senses, then presents clear, simple activities that can be performed by families throughout the course of the day to work on specific issues. VERDICT: This work is an indispensable tool for parents and caregivers seeking to improve the lives of children with autism, whether they are performing daily tasks or just having fun. -- Library Journal Debra Jacobs and her co-author Dion Betts have developed an excellent resource for families who are struggling daily in their homes with challenges related to raising a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ...This book provides families with multiple strategies for promoting daily life activities through sensory adaptations to routines. ... I applaud this book for promoting love, happiness, and function in families. -- From the Foreword by Carol A. Just, OTD, OTR/L, Department of Occupational Therapy, Thomas Jefferson University, USA Quite often when presented with a diagnosis of ASD it is difficult for a parent or carer to know how best to help their child. This book, by Debra Jacobs and Dion Betts, not only provides a veritable cornucopia of practical suggestions and insightful advice, it goes one step further. It teaches how to reach and relate to a young child with ASD in a calm, confidant and loving way. The writers have left nothing to chance. Starting with babyhood, they show how to maximize the learning potential of every waking moment and demonstrate how this can be fun for everyone involved. This book could stand alone as a handbook for raising all children, but combined with the authors' astute insight into autism, it is a triumph of empowerment. If you follow the advice set out in its pages you will, undoubtedly, be training your child with ASD to live life to the full. -- K.I. Al-Ghani, special educational needs teacher and author of Learning About Friendship and From Home to School with Autism
