Abstract
Sexual health and sexuality can be difficult subjects for parents and caregivers to broach with autistic children, made more challenging when children are at the severe end of the autism spectrum. Some parents may even question the validity of teaching sexuality to those who are severely autistic. This handbook guides you through the process of teaching about sex and sexuality, offers to answer questions such as: Why is it necessary to teach this subject to my severely autistic child? When is the right time to start talking about these issues? How detailed and explicit should I be? What methods are most appropriate? It addresses male and female issues separately and covers public and private sexual behaviours, sexual abuse, cross-gender teaching and liaising with school, in addition to the more obvious areas such as physical changes and menstruation.

Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love Solomon documents in every chapter.

When children (under age 12) engage in sexual behaviours it is sometimes difficult to decide when the behaviour is natural and healthy, and when it may be an indication of some distress or disturbance. This booklet provides a definition of natural and healthy childhood sexual behaviours and then contrasts this with twenty characteristics of problematic sexual behaviors in young children. Charts describe children's "natural and healthy" sexual behaviors, behaviors "of concern" and those in need of professioal evaluation. Information is provided on how and where to look for help of an evaluation seems warranted. A continuum of chilldhood sexual behaviors, from natural and healty to children who sexually offend, is described.

Knowing when your personal boundaries are violated - and what to do about it when they are - isn't a simple skill. It requires a surprising amount of self-awareness that only a firm sense of your own value and limits can provide.
If you feel like you have trouble saying no to others, at work or at home, or if you feel your life being squandered by good but unintentional activities and relationships, this book can help you establish more effective boundaries. The authors explain the differences between boundaries and walls, explore a variety of boundary problems, and help you assess your own boundaries and make necessary adjustments. Throughout, they teach you how to view yourself as a treasure to be protected, so that you can learn how to enjoy a life of evolving authenticity.

Each skill is formatted sequentially, similar to a cartoon strip, with digital pictures of actual children combined with text and cartoon bubbles to denote what the children are saying - and sometimes thinking - as they engage in the skill. Included are the right (and sometimes the wrong) way to act with accompanying text that enhances the learning experience. These pictures provide a means to compensate for the inherent difficulties many autistic individuals share. They make explicit what to do and say in social situations. In addition, by utilizing a picture format, they capitalize on students' visual processing strengths to facilitate attention and comprehension.
