Comprehensive manual designed to guide parents and teachers of children with autism
âRecognizing and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders in Toddlersâ by Michelle Kehoe currently ranks among the best guides for people with special children. As a specialist educator who works with young children, Michelle has a broad understanding of SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) in children.
With 22 years of solid experience working with toddlers and their families, Michelle understands how difficult and confusing it can be to care for special children. She began receiving students with autistic characteristics early in her teaching career, and the number grew rapidly. For this reason, she has always wanted a comprehensive and practical guide to reference information and consumable tables and forms for guardians of pre- or newly diagnosed autistic children. Unable to find one, the specialist children’s teacher took it upon herself to bring together her vast knowledge and experience on the subject in her book.
Unlike many other informational brochures which are written in narrative form, Michelle wrote this book in checklist and graphic form so that it can be consumed as needed. This means that guardians can fill in the blanks and reproduce the information for any situation. She subscribed to this format because the narrative form of writing special guides like this is not suitable for use in everyday life situations.
According to her, âThis manual will provide you with general guidance and information regarding roving special education at home and in the community at the early intervention level. I have included a section of common occurrences and situations and lists of community services, resources, related programs and phone numbers. Anyone involved with a child with ASD, whether a teacher, therapist, parent, or other family member, can benefit from this guide, and you are encouraged to copy and use any provided templates as needed.
âAn in-depth understanding of neurodivergence in young children. Michelle clearly has a wealth of experience helping teach those on the spectrum, be it parents, siblings, educators, researchers, etc.
