My kid knows the entire periodic table by heart! Why do HANGERS matter?
Simple. When your skills have holes, you know it. And you feel like a fraud. Smart. But really, really stupid. And that’s NOT ok.
For Asperkids, home is both their protected lair and their launch pad into a neurotypical world. In this unique book, Jennifer O’Toole provides parents with all the help they need in planning their home environment to encourage their Asperkid superheroes to soar.
The Asperkid’s Launch Pad is a visually-led instructional guide to preparing a home environment that supports the development of children with Asperger syndrome. From a bedroom light switch that the child can easily reach, to a tucked-away safe place that he or she can retreat to when feeling overwhelmed or anxious, small changes in the home can boost the child’s self-confidence, independence, comfort, and life skills. Award-winning author Jennifer O’Toole gives readers a walk-through tour of her home, showing, room by room, how physical surroundings affect Asperkids and highlighting the latent learning opportunities in every space and object.
Beautifully presented with colour photographs throughout, this functional and fun book will win a place in the homes (and hearts) of all parents of children with Asperger syndrome.
