Abstract
Using photos of family members and the words of children as young as six, the author shows the ups and downs of life with someone who has autism. The book contains interviews with the non-autistic child in more than 10 sibling pairs, and has color photographs of the kids interacting. Written in the first person, the essays tell of brothers who behave differently and “can’t do things,” sisters who aren’t able to speak, and children who throw tantrums and are made fun of by others.

Abstract
This edition is translated into Korean. Children with Regulation Disorders of Sensory Processing struggle to regulate their emotions and behaviors in response to sensory stimulation. This book explains how to recognize these disorders, which are often misdiagnosed, and offers practical ways of helping children with regulation disorders. The authors explain the distinguishing characteristics, symptoms, diagnosis, assessment and treatment approaches for the disorder. Focusing on early intervention, they present a range of management strategies for sensory sensitivities, motor problems, over- or under-reaction, and extremes of behavior. These practical strategies for parents and professionals will help children with regulation disorders integrate and succeed in the family, at school and in the community.

Abstract
Puberty is a time of huge change in the physical body, in emotional experience and in social relationships. Having an understanding of these developments and learning how to deal with them is essential, and for people with Asperger's syndrome it can be a challenge to get to grips with the social and emotional aspects of puberty, sex and relationships.This book is ideal for those who need clear, detailed explanations and direct answers to the many questions raised by puberty and sexual maturity. Sarah Attwood describes developments in both the male and female body, and explains how to maintain hygiene and personal care, and to promote general good health. She examines emotional changes, including moods and sexual feelings, and provides comprehensive information on sex, sexual health and reproduction. She looks at the nature of friendship, how it changes from childhood to adulthood and its importance as a basis for sexual encounter. She also offers coping strategies for different social experiences, from bullying to dating, and includes essential tips on the politics of mature behaviour, such as knowing the difference between public and personal topics of conversation. Making Sense of Sex is a thorough guide written in unambiguous language with helpful diagrams, explanations and practical advice for young people approaching puberty and beyond.

Melanie Marsh is an American living in London with her British husband, Stephen, and their two young children. The Marshes’ orderly home life is shattered when their son Daniel is given a diagnosis of autism. Resourceful and determined not to accept what others, including her husband, say is inevitable, Melanie finds an ally in the idealistic Andy, whose unorthodox ideas may just prove that Daniel is far more “normal” than anyone imagined. Daniel Isn’t Talking is a moving story of a family in crisis, told with warmth, compassion, and humor.

At 18-months, Ashley didn't talk, survived on a diet of crunchy foods, and focused all her attention on Barney the Dinosaur. But she worked puzzles like a kindergartender and was computer savvy before she was two-years old. Ashley was diagnosed with autism, specifically an issue with auditory processing - she could hear, but she couldn't listen. A therapy (involving Mozart and the Tomatis Method) to retrain her ears to perceive sound better "awakened" Ashley: her brain's desire to communicate was kindled, fostering a connection with her body, her family, and the world around her.
