Sound science and practical ideas. If you are a parent or a professional working with a person with autism this book is a must read - Will Burrow PhD
WALTHAM, MA, September 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The new book, Autism Chaos to Calm: Discovering Solutions to the Everyday Problems of Living with Autism
, by Martha Gabler will be available free in Kindle format on Amazon on Oct 1-2 at this link: http://tinyurl.com/AutismChaosToCalm
. This book is to help parents of children who have tantrums, hurt themselves or others, engage in repetitive self-stimulatory behaviors, run off or just need to learn skills for everyday such as playing with toys, riding a bike, dressing, going for a walk or sleeping through the night. The teaching method described in the book is called TAGteach, a method that relies on the use of structured positive reinforcement to build good behaviors.
TAGteach is a scientifically sound approach that has been discussed at Behavior Analysis conferences over the past 7 years. Gabler's book is the first to explain this step-by-step for parents. Her writing is based on experience with her own severely autistic, non-verbal son, who was chaotic and out of control as a young child, but is now a happy, cooperative teen.
Initial reviewers have high praise for Chaos to Calm and the TAGteach method:
"It could, and should, be the model for a new approach to assisting families, and will also be of much use to teachers and clinicians" - Martin Kozloff, PhD, Watson Distinguished Professor, Watson College of Education University of North Carolina Wilmington, Author of 'Reaching the Autistic Child' and many other books, Autism Society Professional Advisor
"Sound science and practical ideas. If you are a parent or a professional working with a person with autism this book is a must read" - Will H Burrow, PhD, Director of Special Education, University of Connecticut
"TAGteach is a robust intervention worthy of the children who need it. I strongly recommend Chaos to Calm for those serious about learning practical uses of TAGteach" - Rick Kubina, PhD, Professor, Special Education Program, The Pennsylvania State University
"I completely enjoyed this book. It was an engaging and easy read with the appropriate amount of personal testimonial and practical generalization. Don't let your child's doctor or other professional convince you that nothing can be done. It's not true and this book proves it." - Aimee Taylor - Autism Parent
"I am on the Autism Spectrum. I'm both high and low functioning but have achieved a level of integration in 'normal' or neurotypical society because of my higher functioning attributes. If TAGteach had been around when I was a kid I may have had an even more successful, less frustrating, anxiety ridden childhood and been a higher achiever than I currently am." - Katie Scott-Dyer
