Reviews - What do customers think about Power Cards: Using Special Interests to Motivate Children and Youth with Asperger Syndrome and Autism?

Power Cards - Why??  Sep 4, 2008
After reading the positive revievs of this book I decided to buy it, and I was sorely disappointed. The author seems to have had some level of success with some ASD children by using potential special interests to modify behaviour, by telling that "a Spice Girl" would never do that..

The idea is good and might help sometime, but I found th book extremely narcicistic and belitteling.

It should have been a 3 page note instead of a book, and it would have been better for it!
 
A good option higher functioning children  Aug 22, 2008
As a mother of two daughters with autism, I found this book to be very helpful. My daughters like many children with autism, have very strong areas of interest. We use this strategy at home and at school and have found that when they aren't motivated by their teachers or peers that using one of their interests holds their attention and encourages them to continue and get their work done. This book is better suited for higher functioning children
 
Great concept  Jun 26, 2007
I received the book quickly in great packing and condition. I think this concept will be helpful for kids who need a simpler approach to social stories.
 
Review  May 12, 2007
This book is for higher functioning individuals on the spectrum. It is for kids with very high coginitive abilities and comunication skills. The idea behind this book is to use the sometimes rigid interests of kids on the spectrum and teach them socially appropriate skills.
 
What a great idea......  Mar 20, 2006
Power Cards is a great tool in helping some autistic children modify and/or change their inappropriate behavior. It might not be the right tool for all autistic children, but for some it can really open up doors to social appropriateness and development. The examples are great and the clinical results listed in the book give a great deal of credibility to this strategy.
