Reviews - What do customers think about Asperger Syndrome And Difficult Moments: Practical Solutions For Tantrums, Rage And Meltdowns?
A must read for parents and teachers Aug 29, 2008
As a parent with two boys with AS and two girls with anxiety this is one of the most insightful and supportive books about managing rage and meltdowns I have ever read. Had it been available years ago I doubt things would have gone so badly with my children in school. It provides guidance for teachers and includes issues about unhelpful teaching interventions in very practical terms.
Good suggestions from an expert Jul 26, 2008
Brenda Smith Myles has been providing families and professionals excellent information on understanding and working with children with Asperger Syndrome for years. This book is very useful to focus on the reasons for the rages, temper tantrums and meltdowns that occur at home and school.
She walks the reader through an explaination of the hows and whys of a child with AS and then provides examples of how to analyze problem areas and develop plans of remediation.
One has to remember that the behaviors she is addressing are the result of confusion, frustration, or a sense of incompetence on the part of the AS child. They don't need more put downs, or criticism from those around, but rather cool, calm, supportive assistance. This book gives help in becoming more like that.
Asperger Syndrome . . . Feb 8, 2008
Excellent resource for classroom and home use. I would recommend it for anyone dealing with the the difficulties associated with ASD.
Extremely valuable Dec 11, 2007
This book was a huge help to me when my son was going through adolescence. I would strongly recommend any book by this author.
Aspergers Syndrome Emotional difficulties Jun 5, 2007
An excellent book, good practical advice. A must for anyone involved with teaching a child with Aspergers Syndrome. The first few chapters breakdown in simple talk what Aspergers People have the most difficulties with. It points out the areas that are considered "normal" for Aspergers syndrome, and that your child is not the only child having these difficulties. I found this particularly useful to show to teachers and principals who are either too busy or lack the inclination to learn about the Syndrome.
The next part of the book explains the rage process, what to look out for, where the teaching zones are and where it is best left until the child has calmed down.
The latter stage of the book gives solutions to the issues that result in Tantrums and meltdowns.
A must for anyone teaching Aspergers children and a great help to parents.
