Reaching the Young Autistic Child: A Parents' Guide

by Sibylle Janert (author), Anni Pott (translator)

(English original out of print/ only German translation available) Parents of autistic children often have a painful experience: their children sink into their own world and are thus often difficult to reach. How can parents find the right access to their autistic child? The author shows parents and educators in a sensitive and humorous way how small everyday moments can be used for change: Understanding, shared joy, games and interactive situations are simple but effective ways to support the autistic child and build bridges to a shared world. The book is a treasure chest with many language and singing games that are easy to copy and with valuable suggestions for successful togetherness.

New in the fourth edition: Chapter with examples of DIRFloortime and the Waldon 'learning to learn' method.  

Autism and the family

by Sibylle Janert (author), Claudia Schenk (illustrator), Sheila Coates (contributor), Merete Hawkins (contributor), Anne Lucht (translator)

This book is designed to help parents, families and professionals in care and education understand autism. The autistic child needs a high level of support at the earliest possible time in his life, when the brain is still developing. With this support, it can learn how to build relationships and communicate with other people.

It aims to inspire the reader to think about autism, how autistic children can be reached and how we can relate to them. It is a book for parents and siblings of an autistic child, a book for other family members, for professionals and staff in early intervention centres and other counselling services. The idea is that talking together about the pictures in this book will stimulate reflection and enable better understanding.
