      This book really only has two points, which the author makes repeatedly:1. Adjust your expectations according to your child's actual capabilities. You might have to learn what those are first. They will be different than those of other children, but not necessarily less.2. Have some perspective and hope: play the hand you're dealt, and be optimisic about what your child can do. They'll rise to the occasion.To be honest, I found that a lot of the specifics weren't very applicable to my own son (w [...]

      Fantastic. I feel like Notbohm really gets it. Great depth and understanding. Great overview of the common issues involved and solid methods for handling and dealing with them.A child cannot be expected to absorb cognitive or social learning, or “behave,” when he experiences his environment as a constant bombardment of unpleasant sensations and nasty surprises. (Kindle Locations 228-230)Through many years of day camps, swim lessons, new teachers, coaches, neighbors, or friends, I never refer [...]

      This is a great book for anyone who is around a person who has autism. I recently became a para educator for a 1-1 with an student with autism and grabbed any book I could read to learn more on top of what I had known before. Great positive message and views of life. My only qualm is she often makes it seem that with the right teachers, lifestyle, iep, etc that anyone can turn out like her son. But some people with autism, no matter the support, may never reach his level of independence. Still t [...]

      This book should be read not only by all families with a child on the AU spectrum but all educators as well. I know I would have liked to have had this information during my teaching career. Avoiding jargon, Notbohm discusses 10 characteristics of a child on the spectrum (with the caveat that all children are different), and gives the reader a clear understanding of how you can put these concepts into practical use. It's about positivity, compassion, and helping your child succeed to his fullest [...]

      Favourite quote, recommended to all the bitchy, neurotic teachers out there: "If you react with anger and frustration to your child or student's meltdowns you're modelling the very behaviour you want him or her to change."This book is not professionals but great for parents (of all children, not just those who have autism).

      A good read, nicely structured and presented in a very accessible, relatable, and comprehensible way. It is, in my opinion, a book that can easily be referred to both by parents and professionals, with utmost confidence. It touches on many relevant issues, and it does prove an eye-opener on some of the more sensitive topics, such as the perception of autism. Glad to have read it at last.

      Great resource. Why aren’t there people writing this stuff on a professional/academic level?

      I checked this book out of the library for my mother (ASD son's grandma) and she went to buy her own copy after it came due. That says it all. Written in layman's language, this is the best book to give to family members and friends who dismiss or don't know how to react to a child's diagnosis. It explains so many of the behaviors that often lead to judgment and criticism and can further isolate kids and families. I particularly like the structure that easily enables readers to find what they ne [...]

      I am a parent - My son is autistic and although this book wasn't really helpful to me (because I already had all the knowledge and understanding this book contains) I really want my whole family to read it.This will be very useful to parents who may not know anything about autism or who have not accepted their child's diagnosis from lack of understanding of the disorder.I know that being a parent you are there every day facing this but sometimes (because they are not their everyday, all day) oth [...]

      My wife recommended I read this book to help prepare for a visit with our daughter and young grandson. I found it to be an eye opener as to the countless ways the senses of a person with autism can be effected. The straight forward manner in which the book is organized and written makes it extremely valuable. While I have been looking forward to spending some time with my grandson I now have a much better understanding of how I can help to make this a better visit for both him and me. In additio [...]

      I understand why teacher training programs do not teach you about specific disabilities - because they want you to individualize your instruction to students with disabilities, not make assumptions based on a label. However, there comes a point when you realize you need some extra guidance because your understanding of children with autism is so limited - that point came for me last week. I read this in a day and it's worth it's weight in gold. There are so many good ideas for teachers (how to c [...]

      I had to return this book before I finished it, but I was only a few pages shy of the Afterword, so I think I can give a fair review. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about Ten Things. Part of me thought Notbohm had much to offer the reader regarding autism--how to understand it and how to relate to children with autism. But the other part of me thought this book was pretentious and too pc. That being said, if you don't know anything about autism this book may be a good place to start. Just don [...]

      I tried to read this book a year ago and found the reality of it drive me to tears every time I tried. I put it aside and picked it up again a few weeks ago. Invaluable for every parent, relative, teacher, or caregiver of an autistic child. You can read my full review on my blogstacybuckeye.wordpress/201

      Very informative and also a great way to think about how you interact with your child and encourage others to interact as they grow. The style of writing may be hard to get through, because it's from a personal experience, not a medical or objective review.I recommend reading it through all together, then re-reading and marking pages for future reference.

      Good insight for parents starting out after getting the autism diagnosis. I recognized three of the things with my kid right away. Good food for thought in assessing the path going forward. While teachers and school may be great right now, always keep an eye on where your kid is going, and if that will the right fit for them.

      Pretty good, especially if you are new to thinking and learning about autism. Some great refreshers even for those who have read and researched a lot. She also strikes a great balance between encouraging celebration and unconditional love while also being aware of the difficulties that arrive every day. Plan to share with family and staff.

      To say this book has helped me understand & give me hope would be an understatement. Truly recommended for anyone that wishes to understand their loved one & to assist in forming a great individual from what society might decide to cast aside for a 'normal' child.

      Amazing book! It really opened up my eyes to what autism feels like from the child's perspective. Being a behavioral therapist and working with kids with autism, the information in this book will help me be even more mindful of the child's point of view of the world.
