Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this picture book appeals to the visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, with color photos of students demonstrating various social skills in the correct (and sometimes incorrect) way. The skills depicted are meant to be read, role-played, corrected when necessary, role-played some more and, finally, to be practiced by the student in real-life social situations. Thought bubbles show what people are thinking during these interactions (not always what you hoped!). Practical, engaging, and down-to-earth, this is a valuable tool to help teens navigate the often-mysterious rules of social conduct in everyday situations.

No More Meltdowns by Jed Baker, Ph.D., Carol Stock Kranowitz
Positive Strategies for Dealing with and Preventing Out of Control Behavior

2008
Parenting
Non fiction

I received a digital copy of this book for review via NetGalley and publisher Future Horizons Inc.

Although published in 2008, the information remains applicable today in its approach to dealing with children who experience emotional outbursts. The author has developed a four-step approach to preventing the out of control behavior. Although nothing is guaranteed, the book does provide useful advice for adults as his recommendations are focused on understanding the child’s difficulties.

His book is based on his evaluation of research on the function of brain cells with challenges abstract thinking. These challenges with abstract thinking can lead to inflexibility due to inability to see another person’s perspective. He explains how adjusting ones expectations can help develop and maintain a positive relationship with the child.

Before we can develop and maintain a positive relationship with our child we must address some key issues. He explains how controlling our own frustrations can help our child feel competent and avoid “learned helplessness” and avoid constant power struggles.

This book is a great resource for teachers. It addresses a variety of skills individuals with autism likely need to work on and can be easily adapted/modified to meet the needs of all students. The text is straight to the point so students do not become distracted with details that are not relevant to the skills.

Defiantly a read for high school students. Not my favorite because I don't think it is realistic. But still a good read.
