Welcome to AspergerChild
***All titles now available on KINDLE and iTUNES in eBook format!***
The Ben and His Helmet series of books will help your child learn how to cope with their Asperger's/Autism characteristics and reduce meltdown occurrence at the same time.
I'm the parent of a child with Asperger's Syndrome and I've been right where you are now! I know you're looking for something that helps your child accept his diagnosis and make sense of it.
Research shows that there are very clear stages your Asperger child will go through while he/she is coming to terms with their diagnosis:-
- Scared and confused
- Isolated and alone
Moving through these stages of emotion usually takes children with Autism and Asperger's approx 2 - 5 years. Unfortunately this process coincides with your own frantic search for information and services available to your child - a time when you're not really thinking of your child's emotional journey.
I know that I was guilty of not addressing my Asperger child's emotional needs during this time - I was simply too busy upskilling myself about Autism Spectrum Condition to even give it a thought! That's why I created the Ben and His Helmet series of books - so you don't have to feel guilty like I did.
The books don't mention Asperger's Syndrome, they simply describe life from Ben's perspective. So if you haven't told your child about their diagnosis you can still take a simple step to help them feel better. Children quickly recognise their similarity to Ben and once they make that connection they don't feel alone anymore.
The Ben and His Helmet social stories are interwoven with problem-solving strategies and solutions. The reader (your child) makes a connection and the first step towards self managing their behavior and actions occurs!
So help put the pieces together for your child with Asperger's Syndrome and purchase the Ben and His Helmet books today! Five (5) titles for the low price of $100.00 + shipping.
Happy reading, Nelle Frances
*** Autism/Asperger's Workshop - Ipswich QLD 12 June 2013***
The Autism/Asperger’s Training workshop provides a detailed description of students/clients with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome, including profiles on the neurology, biology, cognitive processing, perception differences and learning styles of those with the condition.
Most classrooms include 3 – 5 students with Autism/Asperger’s. The workshop gives Teachers, Professionals and Families a vivid insight into the subtle intricacies of Autism/Asperger’s; but more importantly provides participants a myriad of strategies to engage successfully with individuals on the Spectrum.
Participants will learn specific techniques for dealing with challenging behaviours and how to decrease stress in students/clients with AS. Nelle will instruct you how to teach students the skills required for emotional regulation – self-assessment, self-monitoring and self-management.
The training includes Nelle’s high-impact Sensory Detective Workshop ® - an interactive exercise that allows you to look at Autism/Asperger’s from the inside out! Response to sensory stimuli influences all behaviour, emotional development and academic progress of those with AS. With this knowledge you’ll find adopting simple accommodations or differentiation strategies becomes second nature!
