Includes resources for parents and teachers.

Abstract
Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens focuses on the social issues and challenges faced by pre-adolescents and adolescents and introduces social concepts and strategies that can help individuals navigate these tricky years. Social rules and expectations change with age; thinking and behavior that was appropriate in elementary school can quickly become inappropriate and unexpected as students move into middle and high school. We developed these Thinksheets to help educators, therapists, and parents encourage more mature social thinking and related shifts in their students? social skills. The Thinksheets explore a wide range of topics, starting with the basic Social Thinking understanding of the Four Steps of Communication, to exploring the hidden rules of the classroom and when is it okay to correct others. Chapters include What Is Social Communication?, Problem Solving, Lessons on Emotions, Different Perspectives, Being Bossy and Jerky, Lessons on Friendships, The Social Fake and Other Tricks, and Participating in Groups. There are more than 160 Thinksheets across these 8 sections, and all are included on the Mac/PC friendly CD that comes with the book. Material in this book may be used by older students who are less mature or who learn this type of information more slowly.

Abstract
L'objectif de ce livre est de décrire la dyslexie à la lumière des plus récentes découvertes scientifiques, tout en gardant à l'esprit qu'il s'agit d'abord et avant tout d'un diagnostic qui est fait grâce à la mise en évidence de problèmes spécifiques par des spécialistes. Si l'école et les enseignants sont en première ligne pour détecter des problèmes de lecture, la dyslexie dépasse largement le simple cadre scolaire et son évaluation. Son traitement nécessite la colla­boration d'intervenants du milieu de la santé et de la réadaptation qui doivent travailler ensemble pour obtenir les meilleurs résultats possible. Les contraintes budgétaires qui sévissent aussi bien dans le monde de l'éducation que dans celui de la santé ont conduit beaucoup de parents à se tourner vers des ressources privées ou d'autres thérapies pour essayer d'apporter le soutien nécessaire à leur enfant dyslexique. Ces différentes approches sont abordées ici en tenant compte de leur caractère scientifique; il ne s'agit donc pas d'une revue exhaustive de tout ce qui peut être entrepris par des personnes qui cherchent désespérément une solution miracle. Car il n'y a pas de miracle dans le traitement de la dyslexie: seulement beaucoup de travail, des efforts soutenus et bien orientés, en plus de la compréhension de la famille et de l'école.
À la fin de ce livre figure un fascicule spécifiquement réalisé pour être lu par un élève dyslexique. En effet, bien des parents et même des enseignants ont du mal à expliquer clairement à un enfant ce qu'est la dyslexie. Grâce à l'histoire que nous raconte Michael, un élève de niveau primaire pourra lui-même comprendre ses difficultés, alors que la page des parents permettra à ceux-ci de se documenter sur tel ou tel point précis et, au besoin, de répondre dans leurs mots aux questions de l'enfant.

The body and grooming section, teaches children all about their body and how to keep it clean. From head to toe, they'll learn that boys and girls aren't all that different as they learn to bathe, shower, wash hair, brush teeth and trim nails. Age: 3+.
