For fans of Paulette Jiles and Marisa de los Santos Winner of the Sarton Women’s Book Award and the Western Writers of America Spur Award Annie Rushton leaves behind an unsettling past to join her brother on his Montana homestead and make a determined fresh start. There, sparks fly when she tangles with Adam Fielding, a visionary businessman-farmer determined to make his own way and answer to no one. Neither is looking for a partner, but they give in to their undeniable chemistry. Annie and Adam’s marriage brims with astounding success and unanticipated passion, but their dream of having a child eludes them as a mysterious illness of mind and body plagues Annie’s pregnancies. Amidst deepening economic adversity, natural disaster, and the onset of world war, their personal struggles collide with the societal mores of the day. Annie’s shattering periods of black depression and violent outbursts exact a terrible price. The life the Fieldings have forged begins to unravel, and the only path ahead leads to unthinkable loss. Based on true events, this sweeping novel weaves a century-old story, timeless in its telling of love, heartbreak, healing, and redemption embodied in one woman’s tenacious quest for control over her own destiny in the face of devastating misfortune and social injustice.

Book Summary:

Winner of the Autism Society of America’s Dr. Temple Grandin Award for the Outstanding Literary Work in Autism A groundbreaking book on autism, by one of the world’s leading experts, who portrays autism as a unique way of being human—this is “required reading...Breathtakingly simple and profoundly positive” (Chicago Tribune). Autism therapy typically focuses on ridding individuals of “autistic” symptoms such as difficulties interacting socially, communication problems, sensory challenges, and repetitive behavior patterns. Now, this updated and expanded edition of Dr. Barry M. Prizant’s Uniquely Human tackles new language such as shifting from “person-first language” to “identity-first language,” diversity of identity in the autism sphere, and the future of autistic advocacy by amplifying the voices of autistic and neurodivergent individuals. “A must-read for anyone touched by autism…Dr. Prizant’s Uniquely Human is a crucial step in promoting better understanding and a more humane approach” (Associated Press). Instead of classifying “autistic” behaviors as signs of pathology, Dr. Prizant sees them as part of a range of strategies to cope with a world that feels chaotic and overwhelming. Rather than curb these behaviors, it’s better to enhance abilities, build on strengths, and offer supports that will lead to more desirable behavior and a better quality of life. Uniquely Human is a “brilliant” (Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes) approach to autism in the modern age that provides “common sense [and] practical advice” (Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain) drawn from Dr. Prizant’s four-decade career. It conveys a deep respect for people with autism and their own unique qualities. Filled with humanity and wisdom, Uniquely Human “should reassure parents and caregivers of kids with autism and any other disability that their kids are not broken, but, indeed, special (Booklist, starred review).

Book Summary:

We are all presented with a ‘meaningless’ blank canvas at birth. The marks this canvas gathers over time are there to complete a picture – your picture. None of these marks are so permanent that you cannot erase them or paint over them. All of them, in some way, give meaning and significance to life. Some marks may appear to be running the picture while others are so precious that we think they are the picture. But, in the final analysis, any masterpiece includes both light and shade; the one is not more important than the other. The story of YOUR life is captured in YOUR picture. Take responsibility for your canvas and seek ways to paint a picture that will serve yourself and those around you. If it is a meaningful life you want, this is the book that will grow your understanding of meaning, deepen your relationship with yourself and others, and inspire you to create a life worth living.

Book Summary:

As a boy, Raun Kaufman was diagnosed by multiple experts as severely autistic, with an IQ below 30, and destined to spend his life in an institution. Years later, Raun graduated with a degree in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University and has become a passionate and articulate autism expert and educator with no trace of his former condition. So what happened? Thanks to The Son-Rise Program, a revolutionary method created by his parents, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. (His story was recounted in the best-selling book Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues and in the award-winning NBC television movie Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love.) In Autism Breakthrough, Raun presents the ground-breaking principles behind the program that helped him and thousands of other families with special children. Autism, he explains, is frequently misunderstood as a behavioral disorder when, in fact, it is a social relational disorder. Raun explains what it feels like to be autistic and shows how and why The Son-Rise Program works. A step-by-step guide with clear, practical strategies that readers can apply immediately—in some cases, parents see changes in their children in as little as one day—Autism Breakthrough makes it possible for these special children to defy their original often-very-limited prognoses. Parents and educators learn how to enable their children to create meaningful, caring relationships, vastly expand their communications, and to participate successfully in the world. An important work of hope, science, and progress, Autism Breakthrough presents the powerful ideas and practical applications that have already changed the lives of families all over the world.

Book Summary:

This is the first book of its kind that calls attention to an important fact: parents can make a tremendous impact on their child through behavioral practices taught at home. Dr. Barbera has created a tool kit that any parent can use to help remediate--and in some cases eliminate-some symptoms of autism and other developmental delays in young children, even in as little as 15 minutes a day. Developmental delays and signs of autism usually show up before 18 months of age, yet children are often not diagnosed until they are 4 or 5 years old. In Turn Autism Around, Dr. Mary Barbera explains why parents can't afford to worry and wait in long lines for evaluations and treatment while not knowing how to help their children. She empowers parents, caregivers, and early intervention professionals to regain hope and take back control with simple strategies to dramatically improve outcomes for their children. Dr. Barbera has created a new approach to teaching kids with developmental delays that uses the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) married with a positive, child-friendly methodology that any parent can use--whether or not their child has delays--to learn to teach communication skills, socialization strategies, as well as tackle sleep, eating, potty training, and behavior challenges in a positive, effective, and lasting way. Turn Autism Around is the first book of its kind that calls attention to an important fact: parents can make a tremendous impact on their child's development through behavioral practices taught at home, even in as little as 15 minutes a day. Her program shows these autism and developmental delays can be remediated, and in some cases, delays can be caught up altogether, if parents intervene while the child is young. This book is for parents of young children aged one-to-five years who are passionate about helping their child as well as learning how they can change the trajectory of their child's and family's life.

Book Summary:

Anthony Rapp captures the passion and grit unique to the theatre world as he recounts his life-changing experience in the original cast of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent. Anthony had a special feeling about Jonathan Larson's rock musical from his first audition, so he was thrilled when he landed a starring role as the filmmaker Mark Cohen. With his mom's cancer in remission and a reason to quit his newly acquired job at Starbucks, his life was looking up. When Rent opened to thunderous acclaim off Broadway, Rapp and his fellow cast members knew that something truly extraordinary had taken shape. But even as friends and family were celebrating the show's success, they were also mourning Jonathan Larson's sudden death from an aortic aneurysm. By the time Rent made its triumphant jump to Broadway, Larson had posthumously won the 1996 Pulitzer Prize. When Anthony's mom began to lose her battle with cancer, he struggled to balance the demands of life in the theatre with his responsibility to his family. Here, Anthony recounts the show's magnificent success and his overwhelming loss. He also shares his first experiences discovering his sexuality, the tension it created with his mother, and his struggle into adulthood to gain her acceptance. Variously marked by fledgling love and devastating loss, piercing frustration and powerful enlightenment, Without You charts the course of Rapp's exhilarating journey with the cast and crew of Rent as well as the intimacies of his personal life behind the curtain.

Book Summary:

A parent's guide to helping children with autism maximize their potential. Over a decade ago, an autism diagnosis had confined Lori Ashley Taylor's daughter Hannah to an inaccessible world. Lori became a tireless researcher, worker, and advocate, and her dedication showed results. There can be progression and shifting on the spectrum, and Hannah has done just that—she has emerged. Part narrative and part practical guide, Dragonfly provides anecdotal and practical guidance for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. The author discusses intervention strategies, therapies such as Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), and different medical tests. She explains Autism terminology like hyperresponsivesness and stimming. A classroom teacher herself, she recommends educational accommodations and supports. Busy parents can find practical tips on everything from making friends to Sensory Processing Disorder in helpful sidebars in the text. Taylor's personal experience is supplemented by wisdom from a series of round table discussions featuring other parents of children with autism. In the summer of 2013, eight-year-old Hannah wrote "Life of a Dragonfly," a poem with repeated parallel stanzas that used the stages of a dragonfly's life as a mirror for her own physical and cognitive development. Among its wisdom was: "Hope rises, and I begin to reveal my concealed wings. I begin to understand language and what I am meant to do." Taylor has helped her daughter find her wings; in Dragonfly, she gives other parents the tools to do the same.

Book Summary:

A safe and simple action plan for autism parents. Each year, more than 50,000 U.S. families receive an autism diagnosis. On top of turmoil and worry, they share the same urgent question: What can we do to help our child? The answers parents find can be contradictory...even dangerous. The conventional approach (employed by too many pediatricians) is to medicate difficult behaviors into submission-suppressing symptoms while leaving underlying health challenges untouched. Surfing the Internet for alternatives just leads to confusion. Now, Dr. Janet Lintala, founder of the Autism Health center and an autism mom herself, shares the natural protocols used in her practice to dramatically improve the function and well-being of children on the spectrum. Drawing on the latest research developments, as well as personal and clinical experience, she targets the underlying issues (chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, gastrointestinal dysfunction, immune dysregulation) associated with the behavior, bowel, and sleep problems so common to autism. Correcting these overlooked conditions with digestive enzymes, probiotics, antifungals, and other nonpsychiatric treatments brings transformative results: less pain, less aggression, and a child who is more receptive to behavioral and educational interventions. While the medical profession is slow to change, autistic kids need help immediately. The Un-Prescription for Autism provides clear explanations, detailed protocols, and examples to help parents act quickly to restore their child's health, self-control, and language-paving the way for reaching their full potential.

Book Summary:

The powerfully moving story of one family's journey toward healing their triplet sons with autism Lynn and Randy Gaston were overjoyed to discover they were having triplets after many arduous years of trying to conceive. But at eighteen months, the boys began exhibiting odd new behaviors-among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Terrified and dumbfounded, Lynn began researching their behavior on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up-each boy was displaying symptoms of autism, though each at a different point on the spectrum. Receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists and began intensive behavioral treatment, not covered by their health insurance. Offering invaluable advice that ranges from educational programs to legal issues to a comprehensive assessment of the therapies and interventions that have worked for their three unique children, Three Times the Love provides a road map for all families who will need to follow them through the trenches. Filled with practical advice and an extensive resource list, it is an essential guide for any family touched by autism.

Book Summary:

Music Education for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Resource for Teachers provides foundational information about autism spectrum disorder and strategies for engaging students with ASD in music-based activities such as singing, listening, moving, and playing instruments. This practical resource supplies invaluable frameworks for teachers who work with early-years students. The book first provides readers with background information about ASD and how students with this condition manage their behaviors in school environments. It then progresses to provide teachers with information about planning music-based instruction for students on the spectrum. In the book's midsection, readers learn how students with ASD perceive, remember, and articulate pitch perception. Following chapters present a series of practical ideas for engaging students with ASD though songs and singing and concentrate on skills in music listening, most notably on activities that motivate students with ASD to interact with others through joint attention. Challenges that individuals with ASD experience in motor processing are examined, including difficulties with gait and coordination, motor planning, object control, and imitation. This is followed by practical teaching suggestions for engaging students with activities in which movement is mediated through sound (e.g., drum beats) and music. Closing chapters introduce non-pitched percussion instruments along with activities in which children engage in multisensory experiences by playing instruments--musical activities described in preceding chapters are combined with stories and drama to create musical narratives. Music Education for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder is accompanied by a companion website that supplies helpful supplemental materials including audio of songs notated in the book for easy access.

Book Summary:

One element at the heart of effective service provision is an understanding of the service user's needs. This book unravels some of the common misunderstandings between people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and providers of support services, and offers practical advice on how to ensure that the needs of people with ASD are catered for effectively. Denise Edwards writes directly from her own experiences of finding appropriate support for her adopted son, John Paul, who has Asperger's syndrome, but also draws on the experiences of a broad range of service users. She emphasises the importance of understanding and conveying the nature of ASD so that support services can meet a person's needs effectively. She discusses common areas in which difficulties arise, including communication, social situations and the organisation of information, examines the implications of support in wider society - education, employment, the legal system - and makes practical suggestions for changes that can improve access to benefits and services for people with ASD. Informative and down-to-earth, this book is essential reading for the providers of services for people with ASD for service users themselves as well as formal or informal carers, friends, family, related professionals and policy makers.

Book Summary:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Perspective is everything when it comes to autism. When people who don’t have autism frame its challenges only through the lens of their own experiences, they unwittingly close the door to alternative thinking that could help those with autism or Asperger’s syndrome overcome their obstacles. #2 Your child’s autism does not mean that they will not be able to live full, joyous, and meaningful lives. You may be scared, but you must believe that your child’s quality of life is at stake if you don’t do everything within your power to help them. #3 Autism is complex, but its primary elements are sensory processing challenges, communication delays, elusive social thinking and interaction skills, and whole child/self-esteem issues. #4 The four elements of social, cognitive, and physical learning are common to many children with autism, but every child with autism is different, and each parent, teacher, and caregiver will be at a different point on the spectrum.

Il faut ensuite appréhender l’effarante liste de difficultés associées – notamment la constipation, le manque de sommeil et l’irritabilité, si fréquents en cas de troubles du spectre autistique – et les divergences quant à la manière de les traiter. Or la pratique courante répond à ces symptômes par des médicaments sans prendre en compte les causes, et l’enfant continue d’errer dans l’épais brouillard de problèmes de santé non pris en charge. En mêlant médecine naturelle et science fondée sur les preuves, L’autisme sans ordonnance constitue pour les parents une véritable bouée de sauvetage. Ses outils diagnostiques détaillés, ses explications claires et ses protocoles simples associés à un Plan d’Action en Ligne remettent l’enfant autiste sur pied grâce à des compléments naturels, sans danger et en vente libre. Une fois ses problèmes de santé invisibles sous contrôle, il peut se poser, s’extraire du brouillard et tirer davantage profit de l’école et des thérapies pour enfin devenir celui ou celle qu’il est vraiment.

Book Summary:

Az elmúlt években több autizmussal élő személy önéletrajzából kaphattunk pontosabb képet arról, hogyan is élnek és éreznek az autista emberek. Ebből a hiánypótló interjúkötetből azonban megismerhetjük az autista gyermeket nevelő szülők megéléseit is: miként változtatta meg eredeti terveiket, szerepeiket, az önmagukról kialakított képet, amikor azzal szembesültek, hogy gyermekük másként fejlődik, és hogy ez a másság örökre az életük része lesz. Szülők mesélnek kendőzetlenül mélypontokról, végeláthatatlan küzdelmekről, tehetetlenségről, de humorról, lelki erőről, támogató kapcsolatokról és arról is, hogyan lehet továbblépni a nehéz élethelyzetekből. Az interjúk olvasása közben az érintett szülők ötleteket, kapaszkodókat találhatnak saját nehézségeik kezeléséhez, a szakemberek pedig ahhoz, miként tudják segíteni az együttműködést. A szenvedés és a kiútkeresés egyetemes emberi tapasztalat, így ez a könyv saját életutunk, önmagunkhoz és a világhoz való viszonyulásunk megértéséhez is hasznos olvasmány.

Book Summary:

When your child is not meeting developmental milestones, turn to this groundbreaking book to learn valuable information to help your child reach their full potential. When you have concerns about your child's development, you may be told to "wait and see," but the latest research on brain development in children suggests quick action is necessary. This is because the brain develops rapidly in childhood, particularly early childhood. By supporting more efficient skill building, intervention provided during the critical early childhood years can change the course of your child's life. An expert in child brain development, Dr. Emily Papazoglou is a board-certified neuropsychologist. She has over a decade of experience working with children as well as their parents, physicians, teachers, and therapists to develop individualized plans to support child development. She also understands the challenges that families face from a personal perspective as she has a sister with Williams syndrome. Designed to be your companion as you navigate what can otherwise feel like a very lonely and frustrating process, this book aims to lower stress and build hope by empowering you to advocate for the development of an action plan to help maximize your child's potential. Full of practical advice, this easy to read book will teach you how to: · Quickly recognize potential developmental issues · Obtain high quality evaluations with specialists · Assemble a team and capitalize on their expertise · Maximize skill building at home · Develop more supportive family relationships · Avoid common pitfalls. If your child was born prematurely or has a medical condition or genetic disorder, this book will explain which skills are most vulnerable. This means that you can proactively support development even before concerns emerge. On the other hand, if your child is already presenting with developmental concerns, you will learn how their medical issues may be contributing and how this may change the approach to intervention. The actions that you take now have the power to help your child capitalize on their areas of strength and improve in areas where they are struggling. No matter the challenges your child currently faces, there is always room for hope.

Written by international experts, this book is the first comprehensive multi-disciplinary analysis of learning, packing a diverse collection of research into one accessible volume.
