Item description for Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew by Ellen Notbohm & Veronica Zysk...
Ellen Notbohm's first book, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, was a shot heard throughout the worldwide autism community, branded by readers as "required reading for all social service workers, teachers and relatives of children with autism." Now, for the teacher in all of us comes Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew. The unique perspective of a child's voice is back to help us understand the thinking patterns that guide their actions, shape an environment conducive to their learning style, and communicate with them in meaningful ways. Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew affirms that autism imposes no inherent upper limits on achievement, that both teacher and child "can do it." It's the game plan every educator, parent, or family member needs to make the most of every "teaching moment" in the life of these children we love.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew?
good book for teachers and parents Sep 10, 2008
Good for information on autism for any person who has an autistic child or is working with a student with autism.
A great follow up to the first 10 things book Jul 27, 2008
Ellen Notbohm has succeeded in coming up with more "things" to let the reader understand the child with autism (which shows the respect learned in the first book of recognizing the child first and the diagnosis second instead of saying the autistic child). Teachers are taught little to nothing on child development and child psychology as they learn to be teachers. This includes the teachers going into special education or emotional / behavioral disorder areas.
This book should be a must for all who work with these children, from the teachers and paras (and administration)to the staff for the cafeteria, library, and front office. There are too many negative assumptions about the motives of the behaviors of these children. 10 Things will help them to walk in the shoes of these children for a moment, hopefully developing a better understanding and empathy for what they are going through, and allowing for more support and accommodations that will allow them to learn and grow as individuals.
Excellent resource! Jul 16, 2008
As a general education teacher who has never worked with autistic children before, I found this book to be very enlightening. It gave me a better idea of the type of students I will be working with this next year and how to better adjust my plans to help them learn in a gen ed class.
Great for all educators May 5, 2008
I bought this book to prepare my son's new, mainstream school for him coming to 1st grade next year. It gives a great overview of ASD, and speaks directly to teachers about having children with autism spectrum disorders in their classroom. I donated a copy to the teacher's library at the school, and they were very receptive.
Must Read for All Who Know a Child with Autism Mar 29, 2008
Ellen Notbohm's second book about autism, TEN THINGS YOUR STUDENT WITH AUTISM WISHES YOU KNEW, is every bit as informative and encouraging as her first. She gets to the point, writes from personal experience, provides practical insight, and she cares. Her first book, TEN THINGS YOUR CHILD WITH AUTISM WISHES YOU KNEW, addressed matters pertaining to the very young. This book continues with the older child's development. After reading her book(s), anyone who deals with the mysteries of autism should feel greatly encouraged and better equipped to help these children grow.
