Framed with both humour and compassion, this book describes ten characteristics that help illuminate-not define-children with autism. Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative resource on hand.

Author Ellen Notbohm's personal experiences as a parent of children with autism and ADHD and as a contributor to numerous publications, classrooms, conferences, and websites around the world coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum.

This updated edition delves into expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social processing skills, and the critical roles adult perspectives play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient, productive life.

A bonus section includes ten more essential, thought-provoking "things" to share with young people on the spectrum as they cross the threshold of adulthood, and an appendix of more than seventy questions suitable for group discussion or self-reflection.

This new edition carries the reader farther into understanding the needs and the potential of every child with autism.

Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew won the Bronze medal in Psychology in the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards and has an Honorable Mention in the 2005 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards.
