I love this book. You know why? I'm a mom to six that is always busy. What mom isn't? The way this book is laid out, I can easily flip back and forth or just go straight to a page I need at that moment.
I absolutely LOVE colorful books that grab your attention. I've always been one of those people that need to see a picture to put with the words. Like in a restaurant? I order the meal that shows a picture. This book is easy to read, simple to find what you need, and offers many picture illustrations. Best of all, it's to the point in whatever social story you flip to and easy for a child to understand..
This book is great for parents and I bet it's valuable to teachers in a classroom. I am donating this book to my son's school because this is THE PERFECT BOOK for explaining social stories to a child. Not only that but it comes with a CD so you can print them out and personalize them. Nice!
How awesome would it be if all my readers bought this book and donated it to their school? What a gift this would be. Why? The prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders among first graders enrolled in school is likely closer to 1 in 67, not the 1 in 150 as previously estimated. Many teachers are not even equipped with the necessary tools to help our kids. If any of your kids have went through what Chaz has gone through, you'll understand the value in having an informed teacher that is willing to work with your child and you. If you have a teacher willing to use this book for your child and many others, you are giving a wonderful gift.
What's a social story?
