Ellen Notbohm’s child-centered approach to autism has had immeasurable effect on autism communities around the world through her multi-award winning books Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, 1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism or Asperger’s (co-authored with Veronica Zysk), and Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew.
The Autism Trail Guide offers a compendium of insights as wide as the autism spectrum itself. A cohesive compilation of her best articles and columns, The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled will inspire parents of children with autism to take on everyday challenges while celebrating what their children bring to their world. Ellen offers concrete advice on everyday issues like math homework, video games and tricky behavior, and also tackles the more abstract concepts of parenting that have no simple answers. When to take risks and when to play it safe. When to step up and when to back off. How to hang on and when to let go.
Praise from parents and professionals:
“You have taught me so much about my son’s world I could never have understood! I am so grateful for people like you who are blazing a trail for the children of tomorrow.”
“Ellen is enlightening, entertaining, passionate and positive. She sheds light on a subject that is much discussed but often misunderstood. Terrific!”
“Absolutely invaluable to all who are ‘on the autism trail.’”
