Ten Things Your Student With Autism Wishes You Knew

2006, Future Horizons

Ellen Notbohm’s ground-breaking book, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, was a shot heard throughout the global autism community, branded by readers as “required reading for all family members, social service workers, and teachers of children with autism.”

Now, for the teacher in all of us comes Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew. The unique perspective of a child’s voice is back to help us understand the thinking patterns that guide their actions, shape an environment conducive to their learning style, and communicate with them in meaningful ways. It’s the game plan affirming that autism imposes no inherent limits, and that both teacher and child “can do it.”
