A Picture's Worth examines verbal communication development and how autism impedes development of these skills and can cause frustration that can lead to problem behaviors. The authors demonstrate how providing many of the communication options described in this book—PECS and the other augmentative and alternative communication strategies (AAC)— can significantly reduce a child or student's frustration and enhance learning. This new edition cites encouraging research that proves PECS (and other AAC strategies) doesn't interfere with the development of speaking skills, and actually can provide a boost to the acquisition of these skills. There's also expanded information on: • Deciding whether a child needs AAC and could benefit from PECS • Who is an appropriate candidate for PECS • How to correct errors during the initial stages of PECS • How to choose which challenging behaviors to eliminate • What to do when a child does not look at pictures This practical guide makes it easy for parents and therapists to get started using this low-tech strategy to help people with autism of all ages to develop effective communication skills!

Bernd Reiners' Kinderorientierte Familientherapie jetzt in zweiter aktualisierter Auflage. Die Kinderorientierte Familientherapie (KOF) wurde vom norwegischen Psychologen Martin Soltvedt entwickelt und führt die Kinderperspektive in die familientherapeutische Arbeit ein. KOF eignet sich für Familien mit Kindern von bis zu zehn Jahren, die in Familiengesprächen oft aus dem Blick geraten. Das neue schulenübergreifende Verfahren vereint Elemente klassischer Spieltherapie und systemischer Familientherapie. Zunächst spielt der Therapeut allein mit dem Kind, zeichnet die Spielsequenz auf Video auf und bespricht sie mit den Eltern, um Parallelen zum Alltag der Familie erkennen zu können. Anschließend spielen Eltern und Kind gemeinsam. So zeigen sich familiäre Interaktionsmuster ebenso wie die innere Welt des Kindes. Im Gespräch werden alternative Handlungsmöglichkeiten mit den Eltern entwickelt, die in der nächsten Spielsituation ausprobiert werden können. Zur Unterstützung steigt die Therapeutin mit ihrer Alter-Ego-Figur in das Spiel ein. Die Kinderorientierte Familientherapie ist eine hilfreiche Ergänzung für systemische Therapeuten, die mit Kindern arbeiten – oder für Kindertherapeutinnen, die Eltern unmittelbarer einbeziehen möchten.

The powerfully moving story of one family's journey toward healing their triplet sons with autism Lynn and Randy Gaston were overjoyed to discover they were having triplets after many arduous years of trying to conceive. But at eighteen months, the boys began exhibiting odd new behaviors-among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Terrified and dumbfounded, Lynn began researching their behavior on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up-each boy was displaying symptoms of autism, though each at a different point on the spectrum. Receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists and began intensive behavioral treatment, not covered by their health insurance. Offering invaluable advice that ranges from educational programs to legal issues to a comprehensive assessment of the therapies and interventions that have worked for their three unique children, Three Times the Love provides a road map for all families who will need to follow them through the trenches. Filled with practical advice and an extensive resource list, it is an essential guide for any family touched by autism.

The fourth edition of Autism Spectrum Disorders: Identification, Education, and Treatment continues the mission of its predecessors: to present a comprehensive, readable, and up-to-date overview of the field of autism; one that links research, theory, and practice in ways that are accessible to students, practitioners, and parents. During the last decade, autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have emerged as the fastest growing developmental disability, and, in response to the dramatic increase in diagnoses, diagnostic criteria in the newly published DSM-5 are significantly different than they were in the DSM IV-R. The structure, content, and format of Autism Spectrum Disorders, 4th Edition have been revised to accommodate changes in the field and to illuminate the current state of the art in the study of autism. New information on early identification, transition education from adolescence through to adulthood, neurobiological research, and technology-based solutions is included.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is portrayed as cognitive and social disorders. Undoubtedly, impairments in communication and restricted-repetitive behaviors that now define the disorders have a profound impact on social interactions. But can we go beyond the descriptive, observational nature of this definition and objectively measure that amalgamate of motions and sensations that we call behavior? In this Research Topic we bring movement and its sensation to the forefront of autism research, diagnosis, and treatment. We gather researchers across disciplines with the unifying goal of recognizing movement and sensory disturbances as core symptoms of the disorder. We also hear confirmation from the perspective of autism self-advocates and parents. Those important sources of evidence along with the research presented in this topic demonstrate without a doubt that profound movement and sensory differences do exist in ASD and that they are quantifiable. The work presented in this Research Topic shows us that quantifiable differences in movements have a better chance than current observational techniques to help us uncover subtle solutions that the nervous system with autism has already spontaneously self-discovered and utilized in daily living. Where the naked eye would miss the unique subtleties that help each individual cope, instrumentation and fine kinematic analyses of motions help us uncover inherent capacities and predispositions of the person with autism. The work presented in this topic helps us better articulate through the voices of parents and self-advocates those sensory motor differences that current inventories could not possibly uncover. These differences are seldom perceived as they take place at timescales and frequencies that fall largely beneath our conscious awareness. To the person in the spectrum living with this disorder and to the caregiver creating accommodations to help the affected loved one, these subtleties are very familiar though. Indeed they are often used in clever ways to facilitate daily routines. We have waited much too long in science to listen to the very people that we are trying to define, understand and help. Being autism a social problem by definition, it is remarkable that not a single diagnosis inventory measures the dyadic social interaction that takes place between the examiner and the examinees. Indeed we have conceived the autistic person within a social context where we are incapable –by definition– of accepting those differences. The burden is rather placed on the affected person to whom much too often we refer to in the third person as “non-verbal, without intentionality, without empathy or emotions, without a theory of mind”, among other purely psychological guesses. It is then too easy and shockingly allowed to “reshape” that person, to mold that person to better conform to our social expectations and to extinguish “behaviors” that are socially unacceptable, even through the use of aversive punishing reinforcement techniques if need be. And yet none of those techniques have had a single shred of objective scientific evidence of their effectiveness. We have not objectively measured once, nor have we physiologically characterized once any of those perceived features that we so often use to observationally define what we may think the autistic phenotype may be. We have not properly quantified, beyond paper-and-pencil methods, the effectiveness of interventions in autism. Let us not forget when we do our science, that we are all part of the broad human spectrum.
