Review of Understanding and facilitating the achievement of autistic potential. Dr Emma Goodall
This user friendly, easy read book has assisted me in so many ways. It has given me the ability to access and conceptualise ideas and strategies to best suit the needs of my learners who are on the spectrum. As an educator supporting teachers ecologically, this resource book is easily generalised into many different contexts where learners have high needs and require support to access the curriculum and key competencies. Teachers I have shared this resource with have thought it is brilliant. Parents have commented that it presents information in an easy to digest presentation and gives real and useable strategies to support people who need the special assistance to grow with learning, be understood by others and get what they need to be higher functioning members of the school culture and environment.
I absolutely recommend this book.
Obviously Dr Emma Goodall understands what is required for learners with Autistic qualities to achieve. From cover to cover this book needs to be in every school and every parent should have access to this amazing resource!
The guide to good mental health on the autism spectrum: 5.0 out of 5 stars By K Wylam on April 10, 2016 The authors lived experience is evident in the perspectives and approach throughout, making the book an ‘easy read’ with content that is as valuable for people on the spectrum, as it is to family and friends supporting people on the spectrum, as it is to the professionals who support and stand by who are seeking to understand.
A broad range of relevant content makes for a valuable and must have resource for anyone interested in living well on the spectrum.
The autism spectrum guide to sexuality and relationships: All too often in life and literature autistic people are cast as sexless, childlike beings. In fact, this could not be further from the truth. The Autism Spectrum Guide to Relationships and Sexuality addresses this by providing a highly useful guide for adults on the autism spectrum which focusses on practically everything related to relationships, dating and sex. I would have found this book particularly helpful when I was a young adult coming to terms with my gender identity and sexuality and starting to have my first experiences of sexual relationships. The book is completely free of any kind of judgement or moralising. It is respectful and inclusive of the various sexualities and gender differences that people have. The book includes detailed information on a number of topics which autistic adults will find useful, such as different types of sexuality, starting relationships, dating, sexual pleasure and ending relationships. The text is subtle and nuanced, providing information on some complex topics such as people whose sexuality changes over time and how that can impact on their partner. Few topics are left out so it really is a one-stop-shop for adults on the spectrum wanting to gather some useful strategies and understanding around the topic of relationships. — From the foreword by Jeanette Purkis, autism advocate, public speaker and author of Finding a Different Kind of Normal and The Wonderful World of Work The Autism Spectrum Guide to Sexuality and Relationships is a solid guide…Powerful, easy-to-read and practical advice providing knowledge and strategies for people with autism. — Ioannis Voskopoulos and Labrini Ioannou, Psychologists
