I haven’t been around these parts recently….
Since January, I have been deeply involved in the writing of my next book “Teaching Children with High Functioning Autism“. It is being published by Prufrock Press and will be available on Amazon… as soon as I’m done…
My first book “Children with High Functioning Autism: A Parents’ Guide“- that was a love letter. That was my story and some of my professional knowledge and I was talking to fellow parents who needed translations of scientific information. That book was… easy to write. That book was… cathartic to write.
This new book is for teachers- general education teachers, special education teachers without a strong background in autism, and any teacher looking for an idea of what to do. I’m talking to fellow teachers, but teachers want specifics, not theory. Teachers want strategies that they can do tomorrow. Teachers need to have something that they can implement for children who move, think, talk, feel and interact with other children in different ways. This book required research… lots and lots and lots of research. And ideas. Lots and lots and lots of ideas. And work… lots and lots and lots of work.
And I’m almost done… !!! But not quite yet- so I’ll be back when I’m finished.
Many, many thanks to Lacy Compton, my editor at Prufrock who has been patient with my mis-spellings of last names, typos, and who is a master at the balance between compliments and constructive feedback.
