A guide to help children with autism develop the skills for simple conversation
Kate Wilde has spent the whole of her life working with children on the autism spectrum. She has worked for the Autism Treatment Center of America (R) for over 25 years, working one-on-one with over 1,500 children from more than 40 different countries. She is currently the Director of The Son-Rise Program (R). She lives in Suffolk, UK.
Reading this book is like having an in-home consultant - or
better, a knowledgeable friend - to cheer you on and guide you
Wilde uses real life examples and practical bullet points to support and inspire you in helping your child of any ageto gain more speech.
She reminds readers, "we are not in a rush," taking the pressure off the results and instead putting the focus on the relationship we are nurturing with our children while we teach them that language is fun and useful. This is the only resource you'll need to help your child grow in his communication!
