You Are Not Alone A Message to Parents of Children with Autism Book PDF/Epub Download

If your child -- or the child of a close friend or relative -- has just received a diagnosis of autism, you are probably feeling baffled and overwhelmed. It is never easy to learn that someone you love has a serious health or developmental condition. Nothing is quite the same after the diagnosis comes in from the doctor. Many families report mixed feelings of sadness and relief when their child is diagnosed. You may feel completely overwhelmed. You may also feel relieved to know that the concerns you have had for your child are valid. An entire world changes just at the diagnosis, but there is hope for both the parents and the child. Whatever it is you feel, know that thousands of parents share this journey. You are not alone. There is reason to hope. There is help. Now that you have the diagnosis, the question is, where do you go from here? The first step is to learn eveything you can about autism. The author decided to write this book for parents all over the world who have an autistic child, to be a guide for them, and to inform them that they are not alone. Their child is not the only one. There are millions children all over the world just like their child. Dr. Deena Moustafa, PhD was born in Cairo, Egypt on 13th of March, 1978. She grew up between Cairo, Egypt & Saarland, Germany and graduated in 1999. She completed her postgraduate diploma in 2001 graduating with honors, obtained a Master's degree in Developmental Psychology in 2005 and a PhD in Psychology in 2009. Dr. Denna Moustafe, PhD tells us that even if we are normal, we still feel some of the same things children with autism feel. Who hasn't been bothered by the feel of scratchy clothes against the skin? Who hasn't gagged on a partially uncooked slimey egg white or on another unsavory distasteful food? Who hasn't been distracted by a loud noise or troubled by the things that lurk in the dark and silence of the night. We are all different, but we are still the same. We are part of a single world where knowledge brings understanding and where books like this one offer hope, practical advise and encouragement. No one is alone!

Autism and the Family in Urban India Book PDF/Epub Download

The book explores the lived reality of parenting and caring for children with autism in contemporary urban India. It is based on a qualitative, ethnographic study of families of children with autism as they negotiate the tricky terrain of identifying their child s disability, obtaining a diagnosis, accessing appropriate services and their on-going efforts to come to terms with and make sense of their child s unique subjectivity and mode of being. It examines the gendered dimensions of coping and care-giving and the differential responses of mothers and fathers, siblings and grandparents and the extended family network to this complex and often extremely challenging condition. The book tackles head on the sombre question, What will happen to the child after the parents are gone ? It also critically examines the role of the state, civil society and legal and institutional frameworks in place in India and undertakes a case study of Action for Autism ; a Delhi-based NGO set up by parents of children with autism. This book also draws upon the author s own engagement with her child’ s disability and thus lends an authenticity born out of lived experience and in-depth understanding. It is a valuable addition to the literature in the sociology of the family and disability studies.

New Autism Research Developments Book PDF/Epub Download

This book presents the latest research in the battle against autism. According to numerous news reports, the increase in special needs children has reached epidemic proportions. Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. The result of a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, autism and its associated behaviours have been estimated to occur in as many as 2 to 6 in 1,000 individuals. Autism is four times more prevalent in boys than girls and knows no racial, ethnic, or social boundaries. Autism is a spectrum disorder. The symptoms and characteristics of autism can present themselves in a wide variety of combinations, from mild to severe. Although autism is defined by a certain set of behaviours, children and adults can exhibit any combination of the behaviours in any degree of severity. People with autism process and respond to information in unique ways. In some cases, aggressive and/or self-injurious behaviour may be present.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Allgemein, Note: 1,0, Technische Universität Darmstadt (Institut für Allgemeine Pädagogik und Berufspädagogik), Veranstaltung: Seminar Reformschulen und Schulreform, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit der Veröffentlichung der Ergebnisse aus der ersten PISA-Studie (Programme for International Student Assessment) aus dem Jahr 2000 setzte auch in Deutschland eine Diskussion um die Leistungsfähigkeit des nationalen Bildungssystems ein. Es wurden Ursachen für das unerwartet schwache Abschneiden der deutschen Schülerinnen und Schüler gesucht. Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, welche Forderungen sich anhand der in PISA getesteten Kompetenzen zum einen für eine mögliche Reform des deutschen Bildungssystems und zum anderen für die (Aus-) Bildung junger Menschen stellen lassen. Darüber hinaus wird zu überprüfen sein, ob die getesteten Kompetenzen tatsächlich das Erreichen eines bestimmten Bildungsniveaus sichern und somit jungen Menschen ein Wissen an die Hand gibt, um erfolgreich im (Erwerbs-) Leben bestehen zu können. Das erste Kapitel befasst sich mit den Begriffen Bildung, Schlüsselqualifikationen und Kompetenz. Hierzu werden verschiedene Konzepte und Definitionen gegenübergestellt, um letztendlich die Anforderungen einer modernen Wissensgesellschaft an ihre Menschen darstellen zu können. Das zweite Kapitel stellt die in PISA getesteten Basiskompetenzen (Lesekompetenz, Mathematische Kompetenz, Naturwissenschaftliche Kompetenz) dar. Zusätzlich wird das Konzept der Problemlösungskompetenz beispielhaft für den Bereich der Fächerübergreifenden Kompetenzen erläutert. Im letzten Kapitel der Arbeit werden Reaktionen auf PISA, Reformvorschläge für das Bildungssystem und Bewertungen der Studie gegenübergestellt. Es werden Vorschläge aufgezeigt und Kriterien erläutert, anhand derer eine Reform des deutschen Bildungssystems erfolgen könnte bzw. sollte. Das abschließende Resümee gibt einen Überblick über die gesamte Arbeit und bringt die wesentlichen Ergebnisse auf den Punkt und stellt einen Zusammenhang der verschiedenen Aspekte her.

'A wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting. The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation' David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump 'A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life' Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on: · What to do if you think your child is autistic · How to understand and support your child at school and at home · Mental health and autism · The differences between autistic girls and boys 'It is incredibly useful and informative, full of new research and interviews that put right an awful lot of misinformation. I cannot recommend this highly enough' The Sun 'Exceptionally useful and informative' Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL

Challenging The Myths Of Autism Book PDF/Epub Download

How many times have you heard that people with autism lack creativity? That they reject affection or suffer from mental retardation? As the number of children diagnosed with autism surges, researchers and educators are racing to define the amorphous nature of this spectrum disorder and its wide range of symptoms. But in trying to characterize this widely varying group, people often perpetuate a host of limiting and potentially damaging misconceptions in the media, in academic journals and even in textbooks. These myths don’t hold up when examined, and they don’t reflect Jonathan Alderson’s experience working with more than 2,000 children and families over two decades. Provocative and meticulously researched, Challenging the Myths of Autism looks at the most prevalent fallacies, explains how they developed, examines why dispelling them matters and, most importantly, sets out a new understanding that will change the way parents and professionals view autism. With examples from his own practice, Alderson charts a whole new realm of possibilities for treatment and research.

Intelligent Love Book PDF/Epub Download

How one mother challenged the medical establishment and misconceptions about autistic children and their parents In the early 1960s, Massachusetts writer and homemaker Clara Park and her husband took their 3-year-old daughter, Jessy, to a specialist after noticing that she avoided connection with others. Following the conventional wisdom of the time, the psychiatrist diagnosed Jessy with autism and blamed Clara for Jessy’s isolation. Experts claimed Clara was the prototypical “refrigerator mother,” a cold, intellectual parent who starved her children of the natural affection they needed to develop properly. Refusing to accept this, Clara decided to document her daughter’s behaviors and the family’s engagement with her. In 1967, she published her groundbreaking memoir challenging the refrigerator mother theory and carefully documenting Jessy’s development. Clara’s insights and advocacy encouraged other parents to seek education and support for their autistic children. Meanwhile, Jessy would work hard to expand her mother’s world, and ours. Drawing on previously unexamined archival sources and firsthand interviews, science historian Marga Vicedo illuminates the story of how Clara Park and other parents fought against medical and popular attitudes toward autism while presenting a rich account of major scientific developments in the history of autism in the US. Intelligent Love is a fierce defense of a mother’s right to love intelligently, the value of parents’ firsthand knowledge about their children, and an individual’s right to be valued by society.

Bad Animals Book PDF/Epub Download

Joel Yanofsky tried for years to start this memoir. “It’s not just going to be about autism,” he told his wife, Cynthia. “It’s going to be about parenthood and marriage, about hope and despair, and storytelling, too.” “Marriage?” Cynthia said. “What about marriage?” A veteran book reviewer, Yanofsky has spent a lifetime immersed in literature (not to mention old movies and old jokes), which he calls shtick. This account of a year in the life of a family describes a father’s struggle to enter his son’s world, the world of autism, using the materials he knows best: self-help books, feel-good memoirs, literary classics from the Bible to Dr. Seuss, old movies, and, yes, shtick. Funny, wrenching, and unfailingly candid, Bad Animals is both an exploration of a baffling condition and a quirky love story told by a gifted writer.
