Autism…What Does It Mean To Me?

Autism...What Does It Mean To Me? : A Workbook Explaining Self Awareness and Life Lessons to the Child or Youth With High Functioning Autism or Asperger's

Written by internationally renowned autism trainer, teacher, and advocate and best-selling author Catherine Faherty, the workbook is engaged by the autistic child or adult to enhance self-understanding and awareness and foster communication with others about needs, preferences, and identity.

Almost every facet of a person's life is explored, including areas particular to autism, and areas every person engages with. Among these are:

Ways of thinking, including focused interests
Perfection versus doing your best
The support of schedules
Sensory experience, including stimming
Creative expression
Learning about and interacting with people
Writing Social Stories
Understanding speech and expressions in others
Types of communication, including verbal or nonverbal
Self-advocacy and miscommunication
Supportive structures for school and approaching ieps
Friendship, play, online acquaintances and safety
Emotions, including feeling anxious or upset, depression, and outbursts

The book concludes with an extended section on happiness, including relaxation, exercise, gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, positive attitude, and making the world a better place.

Extensive materials designed especially for older readers, as well as for parents, therapists, and teachers, are included. Understanding what's actually true and supporting acceptance and appreciation form the cornerstones of Catherine's approach and the workbook. This new book is completely updated and revised from the original edition with the "Asperger's" title. It adds more than 150 pages of brand new material and worksheets.
