parent with a HF child, and shouldn t be complaining Or having people just look at your child as bad or as you as an unfit parent who just needs to learn how to discipline It was great to know that those of us with HF kids DO have a lot of challenges, sometimes great ones, and that we are not alone The author gives a lot of tips on helping the HF child, and I was happy to see that we already do some of them It s always nice knowing you aren t doing everything wrong I think this is a great read for those with kids who are on the high end of the spectrum and for those who work with them If my child s teacher would read this book I think things would go a lot smoother for usbut that s a whole other can of worms I ll admit, after working as a one to one aide for a kiddo with autism, then as a teacher s assistant in another integrated classroom, and having THEN walked through the Early Intervention process and eventual diagnosis of my own child with mild to moderate autism because apparently with tthe changes to the DSMM, we no longer use labels like Asperger s, PDD NOS, high functioning, and low functioning , nothing in this boom really felt new to me There were several good reminders, thoug I ll admit, after working as a one to one aide for a kiddo with autism, then as a teacher s assistant in another integrated classroom, and having THEN walked through the Early Intervention process and eventual diagnosis of my own child with mild to moderate autism because apparently with tthe changes to the DSMM, we no longer use labels like Asperger s, PDD NOS, high functioning, and low functioning , nothing in this boom really felt new to me There were several good reminders, though, and at least now I have a book that I can recommend to other parents who might be a little newer to all of this I really like that she offered up both the viewpoints of families who seek to cure autism from a biomed disease caused perspective, as well as the viewpoint of families who feel strongly that there is nothing to cure, just something to accept I have seen parents arguing vehemently from both sides of this issue, and it was refreshing to see her find a balance between the two accepting her children ffor who they are, yes, but stilm working to develop their strengths and battle any underlying physiological issues in an effort to build their health.It was also refreshing to see her take on vaccines While she and I have made different decisions or so it would seem, from what she says , she at least acknowledges that, yes, there ARE children who are at different places in physical development, for whom the current vaccine schedule and vaccine adjuvants may not be safe It sounds llike she has chosen to fully vaccinate despite this, and that she believes other parents should, too, but it was nice to hear someone taking that position who will also admit that she thinks we need to clean up vaccine ingredients, reconsider tthe schedule, and work to identify the children whose immune systems ARE at risk She spendstime dwelling on ABA than on SonRise, in her discussions of different therapies, which was disappointing, but she also readily admits some of ABA s failings and notes that SonRise was just not a therapy they knew about and or had the opportunity to invest in at that point in time I did ABA when I was a one to one aide, and while I don t see myself enlisting my son in an ABA program OR going off to a training I another state for several days to truly learn the SonRise method, I round it very educational to read the book on the SonRise method, as it gave me some new perspectives and tools to use in our lives on a day to day basis So even if you don t have the eextra money lying g around and really, what autism parent does to partake in the training, I recommend picking up that book anyway So I guess thay s my review Read this, but also read the SonRise book by Raun whats his name Kaufman Oh, and Raising a Sensory Smart Child That s another good one Can that be the Autism Trifecta of recommended reading This book is a fantastic resource for families, loved ones, friends and teachers of children with HFA Great info for families of newly diagnosed children and very helpful to theHFA familiar Has some good school strategies, life skills tips I m not a frivolous buyer of books, but I am buying this one.
