Reading Recommendations

I wanted to include some books, manuals, etc. that I have found helpful, both as an SLP and a mom.  I will try to update it from time to time.  If you are looking for websites that I recommend, please see the Links in the dropdown menu at the top of the site.

This book was recommended to me by several clinician friends.  It is an amazing book that I highly encourage you to read if your child has sensory problems or you work with a child who has sensory problems.  Throughout this book, you assess your child to find out exactly what his or her needs are.  I understood Colin's responses and his needs much better after reading this book!
As an SLP in private practice several years ago, I heard of people going to this clinic in Beckley.  Years later I found myself reading this book and implementing the strategies.  Janet Lintala, DC was a chiropractor in Beckley, WV.  She has a son who is on the spectrum.  Her book changed our lives.  I read it start to finish in just a few days (I never do that!), and started Colin's "action plan" immediately.  Tons of recommendations about how to help your child overcome gut issues that affect brain function.  You even get an outline for an entire year's "action plan" that you can tailor to your own child!
I have not read this exact book because I took the Floortime course offered by the Floortime Center.  Over a year ago, we took Colin to Bethesda, MD and he saw Jake Greenspan, the son of Stanley Greenspan.  The DIR Floortime Model has also changed not only how I work with Colin, but also my intervention with other children.  *Floortime offers professional and parent courses, I HIGHLY recommend them as well!
Nancy Tillman gets me every.single.time.  I cry every time I try to read this to the boys:
"a piece of the world that is precious and dear would surely be missing if you weren't here.
If not for your smile and your laugh and your heart, 
this place we call home would be minus a part."

This book was a great read as a parent interesting in learning more about this ABA approach. Barbera was a nurse, but then her son was diagnosed with autism. She is now a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Very straightforward and easy to follow. I love that she gives examples to further showcase how this therapy works. She even provides an outline of how to approach a program for your child!

 This one is written by yours truly!  I share our story, a journey from infertility to autism.  I hope that parents find it relatable and encouraging.  I hope that "everyone else" finds it insightful and also sees it as a learning experience.

  4. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.
