Autism seems to be increasing. This book Ten Things Your Studend With Autism Wishes You Knew by Ellen Notbohm is a must book that you should read. It’s a short, but exceptional book. The publisher is Future Horizons. It should be required reading for all teachers, parents, and social service workers.
Autism imposes no inherent upper limits on acheivement. There are Rain Men (boys and girls) in classrooms across this country. In fact there seems to be more boys in Duluth Public Schools with it. The author helps you understand how an autistic child thinks.
What amazes me about autistic children are how many are different, unique and have lots of cognitive information. In fact, some are just spilling over with information.
