Abstract
This carefully written and illustrated book provides an explanation of sex for people with autism and special education needs and disabilities (SEND). It helps readers to understand the physical processes as well as important issues such as consent and sexual safety, helping them to develop positive relationships.
Many people with autism and SEND have or will have intimate relationships. Often sex is alluded to, rather than being carefully explored. This can create confusion around consent, sexual health, and pregnancy, and cause people to turn to dubious online information. This book frankly explains sex so that the reader has a clear understanding of what constitutes sex, knowledge of the proper names for sexual organs and sexual activities, and is aware of the potential physical consequences of having sex.

Bonjour ! Je m?appelle Camille. J?ai 9 ans. Je collectionne les figurines, j?adore les chevaux et le théâtre et je suis? très maladroite. En fait, j?ai un handicap qui s?appelle la dyspraxie. Sais-tu ce que c?est ? En fait, la dyspraxie (ou trouble d?acquisition de la coordination) est un trouble neurologique qui affecte la capacité à planifier, à organiser et à automatiser les gestes moteurs pour réaliser une action. En d?autres termes, c?est une difficulté à effectuer les bons mouvements. Destiné aux enfants d?âge scolaire et à leurs parents, cet album documentaire présente, un peu à la manière d?un scrapbook réalisé par un enfant, l?histoire de Camille, qui est dyspraxique. Simple et concret, cet ouvrage de vulgarisation explique aux enfants, dans leurs mots, ce qu?est la dyspraxie. Camille y aborde les difficultés et les questionnements liés à son intégration scolaire, à sa vie de famille et aux divers défis psychosociaux qu?entraîne sa condition. Plusieurs trucs concrets et conseils avisés agrémentent cet ouvrage illustré par les enfants de l?École Saint-Jean-Baptiste à Jonquière.

Abstract
Parenting isn't easy, and parenting a child with a Global Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability, or Autism can be challenging. However, a lot of parenting strategies are straightforward once you get your head around them. With the right knowledge, environment, interactions, responses and understanding, you can help reduce your child's anxiety, build their confidence, and help them develop learning and communication skills.
Dr Joshua Muggleton provides a comprehensive, step-by-step parenting plan that will support you to embed good practice at home from day one. These strategies are designed to work across all neurodevelopmental conditions, and take into account co-occurring conditions such as ADHD, meaning none of the advice in the book requires your child to have a specific diagnosis. Also included are downloadable examples of charts, how-to guides for creating visual resources tailored to your child's individual needs, and bonus downloadable chapters on sleep and siblings.[See introduction for link.]

Siblings of Children with Disabilities
Abstract
When there's a child with a disability in the family, how are normally developing siblings affected? According to Kate Strohm, a counselor and health educator, siblings of people with disabilities face particular emotional challenges that are often overlooked. Able siblings commonly struggle with feelings of isolation, grief, anger, and anxiety?and these and other emotional issues can have lifelong effects. [paragraph rephrased from publisher's version]
Being the Other One is based on the author's own experience (as a sibling of a sister with cerebral palsy) and on extensive interviews she conducted with siblings of all ages. In clear and compassionate terms, Strohm explores the often secret feelings of siblings and offers valuable strategies for coping with the challenges they face.
Being the Other One reveals the difficulties faced by siblings at all stages of life, from early childhood through adulthood, when siblings must often assume responsibility for the care of their disabled brothers and sisters. Though the book looks honestly at the many challenges that siblings face, it is full of encouragement and practical strategies. Strohm emphasizes that when siblings are able to clearly identify and openly express their feelings and concerns - and when parents and health professionals offer the needed support - siblings can thrive. This book includes writing exercises for personal exploration and a substantial resources section listing helpful books, organizations, and websites.

Establish a 400-word vocabulary in nonverbal children and lay the foundation for communicating with pictures and signs. Children learn the new vocabulary in a variety of formats so they truly comprehend the words.
The teaching methods are what most nonverbal children need: rote, systematic, and familiar. The activities progress in the hierarchy that most verbal children acquire language:
- learning labels and attaching meaning
- developing vocabulary and concepts
- expanding vocabulary knowledge through associations and experience
The vocabulary is divided into five themes: Home, Community, Food, School, and Animals. Each theme consists of eight units and each unit teaches 10 functional vocabulary words (total of 80 vocabulary words in each theme).

Abstract
Being a good listener means much more than just hearing what is said with the ears. It is important to break down ALL of the components of listening, to teach your kids to listen with their eyes, hands, feet, brains, hearts - indeed their whole bodies!
Designed to stimulate discussions at home and at school about how we listen as a member of our family and in groups, Whole Body Listening Larry at Home teaches children with fun lessons wonderfully illustrated to bring the concepts to life.
This book can [be] read with ALL younger students by parents, teachers, etc. The book can be read with the child and the child can then read the book on his or her own, with siblings, friends, grandparents. Developed from years of using Whole Body Listening Larry to teach children in their practice, speech language pathologists Kristen Wilson and Elizabeth Sautter worked with illustrator Eric Hutchison to make their best lessons work for even the wiggliest child!
