Asperger’s… What Does it Mean to Me?

If you only buy one book on Aspergers, let this be it.  It is an invaluable workbook which enables you to learn all about your child and your child to learn all about themselves, and what it means to have Aspergers Syndrome or High Functioning Autism.

It is well set out and separated into distinct sections. Each section has information for parents and teachers, and a section to be filled in by the child.

It covers a great many aspects of the child’s life, from styles of learning, schedules and routines, sensory sensitivites, their interests and talents, understanding people and friendships, hopes and fears, thoughts and feelings and much much more. It has simple multi-choice questions and places for your child to write their own answers, as well as easy to understand text for children, explaining many of the issues associated with Aspergers Syndrome.

You can sit down and work through it with your child. It allows you to tailor your child’s home and school life to enable your child to reach their full potential.

Fast ForWord

Fast ForWord is a program that was developed following the discoveries by neuroscientist Michael Merzenich and his colleagues at the University of California and Rutgers University.

It is designed to address auditory processing difficulties using distorted speech sounds and tones. Many of the speech sounds use commonly confused phonemes and train the user to differentiate between these. There are various levels of the program available, ranging in complexity from basic to advanced based on the user’s age and abilities, from preschool upwards. They have found favourable results for those with a mild to moderate APD, and can often assist with reading difficuties associated with Auditory Processing.
