Is your ASD teen ready to venture into the community with confidence and success? Like their peers, teens and young adults with Autism and Asperger's often seek more independence as they move into their teens and twenties. However, caregivers are often concerned that their ASD teens do not have the skills to independently navigate outings and activities in the community successfully. Designed for both parents and professionals, the Community Participation and Independence Skills workbook is your guide to assessing and teaching your ASD learner the skills they need to successfully navigate a wide variety of experiences in their community. This easy-to-use and engaging book is practical and hands-on. Key features include: Builds Foundation Skills + Community Activity Skills The book focuses on two types of skills that are required for successful outings in the community: Foundation skills: These are skills that are applicable to a wide variety of outings, such as paying for goods, dressing appropriately, and walking safely and confidently. Community Activity Skills: These include the skills required to participate in a specific community activity, such as catching a bus, buying groceries, using an ATM, etc. Skills are Broken Down into Small Steps Each foundation skill and community activity is broken down into the component skills needed for successful community participation. For example, catching a bus includes the skills of determining the route, purchasing a ticket, flagging down the bus, choosing a seat, etc. Each of these skills can be assessed and taught independently so you can focus specifically on the areas where your learner needs most support. When your learner has mastered the component skills for a community activity, you can be confident they have the basic skills required for successful participation. Builds Beyond the Basic Skills Many students easily learn the basic skills for participating in community activities. However, it is also extremely important that your learner knows what to do in unexpected situations. For example, when catching a bus, your learner needs to know what to do if she misses her stop or if she gets off at the wrong stop. All the community activities and foundation skills in the book include a list of potential problems. Knowing how to handle these issues will increase the confidence of both you and your learner. If you're a parent, SLP, or teaching professional looking for a hands-on, practical guide, then you'll love the Independence Skills series from Dr. Toole and Happy Frog Press - providers of award-winning Autism resources. Support your learner's steps towards independence. Buy this book and build a confident and capable teen who is ready to participate in community activities.

Ethan is only in grade one and already has been kicked out of one school due to his tantrums and pattern of running away when in a panic. Now, his mom's enrolled him in a new school but remains glued to her phone, waiting for the call to tell her to come pick him up, that they can't handle him, that they don't know what to do with a child who has autism. How can she trust these strangers to look after her son, just one small child among hundreds, when he has run from own parents so very many times? They don't know the terror of losing your child in a mall or watching him run blindly into traffic. What started as a fun chase game when Ethan was a toddler has turned into a terrifying deviation. The adults in his life never know when he might take off. Rather than attaching an adult to his side to keep him safe, this new teacher talks about calming strategies and choices. Do they not realize what could happen if Ethan flees the building? The impact of a car on one small body? Sara is about to learn if this new school is up to the challenge. Meet Kyle, Mel, Ben and the other characters you got to know in the Amazon bestseller Autism Goes to School. See what they've been up to in the last year and how they join forces to help Ethan. Then, return to Madson School to see if Manny, a child with severe autism belongs in their midst. Read Manny's story in Autism Belongs. Dr. Sharon A. Mitchell has worked as teacher, counselor, psychologist and consultant for several decades.

One in sixty-eight American children has an autism spectrum disorder and one in every forty-two boys. Every teacher will have a child with autism in their classroom. Every coach will meet a child with autism. If autism has not touched your family, it will affect your friends or neighbors. When parents receive the news that their child has autism, they spend countless hours researching the subject, usually at night, after an exhausting day. There is a lot of information out there, much of it by competent authorities. But after a hard day of work and family responsibilities, who wants to read a textbook? What if you could just read a good story and still gain ideas to try? Yes, life with autism has it's struggles, but there are strengths as well and the fun parts that any family experiences. So, the novel "Autism Goes to School" was born - a story about a single dad doing the best he can with his five year old son. The book's full of the challenges inherent in autism plus strategies that make life easier for all concerned. It's followed by Autism Runs Away. When six year old Ethan gets overwhelmed, he flees blindly. One school has already asked him to leave, fearing that they can't keep him safe. Will his new school be up to the challenge? Book 3 in the series, Autism Belongs, is about Manny and his family. Manny is nonverbal and as he has grown, so does his level of aggression. His parents cope the best the can, remaining cocooned in their home, tiptoeing around their son. When he's invited to go to school, his parents can't believe that he'd belong. In Autism Talks and Talks, Karen is a highly verbal 12 year old who find social situations hard. Join the kids and staff of Madson School as they learn and grow and welcome others with special needs into their midst.

Late intervention often means that young people on the autism spectrum appear to act on impulse, seem disorganized, or fail to learn from past experiences. In this practical, effective resource, the authors share tried and tested techniques for creating and using a personal planner to help individuals on the autism spectrum to develop independence. Planning to Learn is split into three parts. The first part guides adults in helping young people to make sense of the world and to develop and practise coping strategies for any given situation. The authors also explain how simple visual and verbal cues can help people to cope successfully in stressful situations. The second part provides worksheets for the young person to complete to learn how to use plans in different situations, for example staying calm when waiting for a doctor, or coping with a change in the school timetable. Each individual makes a unique planner with procedures to refer to, such as responding to pressure, calming down, being organised, and being around people. The third part includes useful cards, schedules and plans for photocopying and including in the planner. This illustrated photocopiable workbook is packed with guidance, support and helpful notes for those new to, or experienced in, working with children and young people with ASD.

A practical guide to using visual supports – activity schedules, graphic organizers, color highlighting and coding, Social Stories, flip books, photographs, calendars and more – to improve academic performance, behavior, social interactions and self-help skills in people with autism. The authors explain how visual supports can be effective in making learning easier for children with autism in areas where they may have particular difficulty, such as language learning, (understanding idioms, word order and conversational skills), memory, attending to a task, temporal-sequential skills, motivation, and social skills. There are general tips on what to consider when making supports: durability, portability, age appropriateness, ease of use and more. A chapter also discusses how to gradually wean students from the supports and work toward greated independence. Dozens of black & white photos and an 8 page color insert illustrate how simple these visual aids are to use and create.
