All About Me A Step-by-Step Guide to Telling Children and Young People on the Autism Spectrum About Their Diagnosis

Heftet / 2018 / Engelsk
Based on direct work with over 250 individual children, Andrew Miller wrote this book in order to provide parents and professionals with information, tools and guidance to help introduce children to autism in the absence of specialist support. This in-depth guide describes the practicalities of disclosure, including when to tell, who should do it and what they need to know beforehand with strategies to tailor your approach as every child's experience will be different. Step-by-step instructions detail how to deliver the programme and produce with a child a personalised booklet containing information about their personal attributes and their autism.These booklets and follow-up material help make disclosure a positive and constructive experience for everyone. Accompanying material can be downloaded online including questionnaires, examples of children's booklets and flexible templates.

This fantastic 'how to' book takes adults step by step through the process of telling a child about their autism diagnosis. Written by an author who clearly has a lot of experience in this area, it is sensitively and reassuringly done, and includes lots of the simple, positive, neurodiverse language. -- Davida Hartman, Senior educational psychologist, lecturer, trainer and author specialising in autismIf you're asking, "How do I tell children and young people on the autism spectrum about their diagnosis?" this book is key. Andrew Miller has created a brilliant step by step guide with supporting resources to help make this a positive experience for all involved. This programme was invaluable to my own work and this book is highly recommended. -- Suzanne Goddard, Advisory Teacher for AutismThe book is divided into two parts, with the first focusing on preparations to deliver the programme and the second on providing an overview of its teaching methods and introducing the associated electronic resources... There is detailed information about delivering the All About Me programme, that is influenced by the work of recognized experts in this field, and Miller explains the steps to supporting children in the process of completing an editable computer template to produce a unique narrative about themselves and their autism, rather than a generic social story. There are links in the book to on-line resources and sample and templates booklets are available for download, along with additional resources and questionnaires. -- SEN Magazine
