15 ready-to-use scripture lessons, from the Garden of Eden to the parting of the Red Sea

We've always taught our kids lessons straight from the bible every night before bed.  Ever since Chaz was a baby/toddler he's been learning about the Garden of Eden, David and Goliath, Jonah and the Whale.  However, we've never had scripture lessons to use like this.  So I pulled up a chair and looked up one of the lessons about Joseph and his coat of many colors.  It was really neat because after I read with them, we got into a discussion about it.  I love questions that we can ask and discuss with each other. It also lets you include a visual illustration and tells you what you need to set it up.  It's nothing that is long and drawn out so it keeps their attention.  I really enjoyed sitting with my boys talking about our lesson for the day which usually led them into opening up about things going on in their daily lives.

The book explains:


How They Learn
Before you can begin to teach a child with autism, you need to understand how autism affects the ability to process information.  You will understand why most traditional methods don't work for these children.  But most importantly, you will learn simple teaching methods that do reach children with autism...
