Not just for Autistic children!

I bought this book before my son was diagnosed. We thought that perhaps he was on the Autism Spectrum. It was such a blessing to find practical, easy to use ideas. He was only 2 1/2 at the time, but there was plenty for me to use. Soon after my son was diagnosed as having Sensory Integration Dysfunction. I still love the book and use many of the ideas to break into his world. It gives hope and encouragement to find the little things that help my son break out of his world and into ours. I have never handed out my modified version of the "Don't Look At Me That Way" cards, but I feel empowered just carrying them around. I am grateful for all of the strategies and games and encouragement this book offers.

One of the best books out there

We were fortunate to get to know Phil Abrams personally. He provided therapy for our daughter (and lots of laughs for us). Phil's insight and use of humor helped our child join our world, as well as to help us see that all is not so bad. I'm happy to know that he is sharing his abilities and insights with every parent who wants them. They were a great blessing to us.

Love, Humor and Infrastructure

The Autistic Spectrum Parents' Daily Helper is a pracitical, wonderful, and loving guide and workbook for parents guiding their children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder through daily tasks and enriched and empowered lives.This workbook is simple, attractive, and engaging. It is full of love and good humor - The writers reach out to parents facing the, at times, daunting task of helping their children learn the necessary skills, like getting dressed, telling time, and navigating daily schedules, that will help lead them to independent lives and communicative relationships within the range of their own abilities.There are loads of strategies, games, and visual aids in this workbook. Many of the sheets are designed to be torn out or cut up so you can adapt them to your own or your child's specific needs. There are plenty of games and fun ways to attack simple tasks. What struck me most of all was the palpable sense of love and fun that permeated this workbook. It is a rare and fine example of how simple and good it is to reach out to those you love and how powerful it is when you empower your children to order their own reality.


WOW..... how many self help books can you relate to ,and implement from the first page to the last? This was absolutly the case with The Autistic Spectrum Parents' Daily Helper. As a parent of an autistic child, not only did I think the ideas in the book were suberb, but it gave me comfort in realizing that I am not alone. This book gives parents great ideas and help in making everyday tasks that can be so challenging for parents and kids easier. I especially like the cards that you hand out to people who may be looking at you or your child in a funny way. I highly recommend this book to parents who are just starting out on this journey, or have been involved for a while. You will all walk away with some great practical information.

A Parent's Absolutely Necessary Buy

This book is very unique in that it is very practical in its approach as well as eclectic with an emphasis on humor and fun. Parent's of autistic children have needed a "self-help" book like this for a long time. It discusses many current theories in an abbreviated form and stresses practical solutions for teaching our kids the "hard to learn" items. I was able to utilize the method recommended for teaching my son many skills (including dressing and brushing his teeth independently)with total success. There are dozens of helpful , useful ideas that approach learning from a playful place. That assisted my son in learning as well as adding to my enjoyment of teaching.THIS IS A MUST READ FOR PARENTS. DON'T MISS THE VARIETY OF IMPLIMENTABLE IDEAS. THIS BOOK IS A REAL OPPORTUNITY FOR CONTINUED SUCCESS FOR YOUR AUTISTIC CHILD.
