Empowered Autism Parenting 

Why we love it ♥

This book gives mothers and fathers, caregivers, and teachers the information they need to recognize the unique personality, passions, and intellect in a child with autism, thereby liberating them from today's culture of fear. It describes how the conventional incentive and reward systems send the wrong message to kids with autism and just don't work. This book offers a sensible ten-step guide for enriching relationships with kids with autism through the belief in their essential competence.

Family Goal Setting Tool 

Why we love it ♥

A great tool - one that I use every session with parents as a VISUAL (see what I did there?) to help sort out goals for their children. Judy Jones has a wealth of knowledge and is a true OT!!  Another personal favourite and an inspiration for easy, accessible information!

Look Me in The Eye 

Why we love it ♥

Look Me In The Eye is a moving and blackly funny story of growing up with Asperger's syndrome at a time when the diagnosis didn't even exist. A born storyteller, Robison takes us inside the head of a boy whom teachers and other adults regarded as defective and who still has a peculiar aversion to using people's given names (he calls his wife Unit Two). He also provides a fascinating angle on the younger brother he left at the mercy of their nutty parents. Above all, you'll marvel at the way Robison overcame the restrictions of Asperger's to gain the connection he always craved: as a husband and father.
