Abstract
When a child is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), parents often feel overwhelmed and uncertain about how to communicate the diagnosis to their child. This book is designed to be read with the child as a simple introduction to their diagnosis. Written by a doctor and a children's author, the book is tailored precisely to the needs and experiences of the child with ASD aged 5-9. It explains what an autism diagnosis means and encourages an exploration of the child's likely strengths and differences using clear language that speaks directly to the child. The colourful pictures throughout show how the world looks from the child's perspective and the book ends with a summary checklist to encourage the child to record and discuss how autism affects them.

La mise au jour de ces facteurs donne lieu à un approfondissement de l'analyse de l'état autistique: entrevoir les différents destins dans la construction du fonctionnement psychique et cognitif du sujet, apprécier les effets des traitements thérapeutiques et leurs évolutions.

Dans un style vif et franc, ce livre relate, dans sa plus grande partie, le cheminement émotif une jeune enfant malade et celui, plus « secret » et intérieur, de sa mère. Le quotidien familial, entre la maison et hôpital, évoque tous les impacts physiques et psychologiques de la maladie chez enfant. Ce point de vue est appuyé par deux textes de soignants qui se trouvent au coeur même de cet accompagnement si particulier de enfant et de sa famille, deux textes porteurs observations concrètes et de réflexions concernant, entre autres, hospitalisation de enfant aux besoins particuliers et humanisation des soins dans notre système de santé.

Each song is an upbeat combination of music and lyrics that can help kids learn more about Social Town, the sneaky Unthinkables, and training at the Superflex Academy to help them seek their "Hero Inside". It was an honor to have our songs written by three-time Emmy nominated songwriters, Michael and Patty Silversher, known for their work writing children's songs for Disney and for the Jim Henson Muppets. Music and lyrics are based on the concepts and characters in the original Superflex curriculum created by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner.

This booklet focuses on helping parents expand their child?s pretend play skills during fun, everyday play activities.

Abstract
Sexual health and sexuality can be difficult subjects for parents and caregivers to broach with autistic children, made more challenging when children are at the severe end of the autism spectrum. Some parents may even question the validity of teaching sexuality to those who are severely autistic. This handbook guides you through the process of teaching about sex and sexuality, offers to answer questions such as: Why is it necessary to teach this subject to my severely autistic child? When is the right time to start talking about these issues? How detailed and explicit should I be? What methods are most appropriate? It addresses male and female issues separately and covers public and private sexual behaviours, sexual abuse, cross-gender teaching and liaising with school, in addition to the more obvious areas such as physical changes and menstruation.

Abstract
Since we introduced the Superflex® Curriculum in 2008, creative educators, therapists, parents, and related service professionals have come up with all sorts of new ways to teach the concepts and ideas related to Superflex. Yet, you wanted games and visual teaching tools to make your teachings even better.
The Thinkables & Unthinkables Double Deck is the superflexible teaching tool you asked for to use with individuals who are learning about or have already been introduced to Superflex, the 14 original Unthinkables, and the newer characters, the Thinkables (first mentioned in our book, Social Town Citizens Discover 82 New Unthinkables for Superflex to Outsmart).
You take the lead in using the cards ? they?re a blank canvas of possibilities!
Create games such as ?Go Fish? with the cards
Use the Thinkables cards to say ?good job? when a child or student has mostly put an Unthinkable to rest
Use an Unthinkable card as a visual tool to remind a student to use his/her strategies when one of those clever, sneaky characters is invading the student?s brain
Pick an Unthinkable or Thinkable and play ?I Spy?? where students use their Social Detective skills to look for that character showing up in themselves or others in the group, the classroom, or the school.
The possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination and your own superflexible thinking!
Content
Unthinkables deck: 52 cards with multiples of each of 14 Unthinkable characters
Thinkables deck: 52 cards with multiples of each of 14 Thinkable characters and Superflex cards
Cards contain the character?s image, name, AND powers. Cards are plastic coated, standard playing card size.

De nombreuses études ont été publiées sur le trouble du spectre de l'autisme (TSA). Malgré tout, les connaissances acquises jusqu?à présent sur ce dernier demeurent limitées. Ce paradoxe s'explique sans doute par le caractère problématique de la définition même de cette catégorie diagnostique. La grande variété des symptômes qui lui sont associés, tout comme l'étendue très large des degrés d'atteinte, font en effet du TSA un trouble particulièrement difficile à saisir et à étudier. La venue de la cinquième édition du DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) amène qui plus est de nouveaux défis en ce sens pour les chercheurs et les cliniciens.

Salut! Je m?appelle Coralie. J?ai 8 ans. J?ai de grandes oreilles, des taches de rousseur et les cheveux bouclés. J?ai un petit frère, Léo. On se ressemble beaucoup. En même temps, il est très différent de moi, car il est autiste. Sais-tu ce que c?est, l?autisme? L?autisme est une condition qui affecte la capacité de communiquer et d?entrer en relation avec les autres, en plus de restreindre les intérêts de la personne. Ceci est dû au fonctionnement différent du cerveau des personnes autiste. Quand mes parents m?ont annoncé que mon petit frère était autiste, je leur ai demandé s?il allait arrêter de l?être un jour. Mes parents m?ont répondu que non. Ce n?est pas une maladie : ça ne se guérit donc pas. J?ai mis du temps à comprendre comment mon petit frère se sent et comment il perçoit le monde qui l?entoure. Quand des amis viennent à la maison, ils trouvent mon frère différent. Et moi je leur dis que je suis chanceuse d?avoir Léo comme petit frère : il est unique!

Superflex Takes On One-Sided Sid, Un-Wonderer and the Team of Unthinkables introduces readers to the Unthinkable One-Sided Sid, who uses his powers to make people talk only about their interests or themselves, and his sister sidekick Un-Wonderer, who uses her powers to keep people from thinking about others. In the story, the clever duo One-Sided Sid and Un-Wonderer are wreaking havoc at Social Town Elementary by invading the brains of kids and getting them to do or say things that show they're only thinking about themselves and not others. Superflex to the Rescue! A multitude of lessons from the Superflex Academy teaches kids strategies for thinking about others and asking questions by using people files, boredom alerts, the Interest-O-Meter, Add-a-Thought, and much more. Short quizzes pop up throughout the book to reinforce learning, and teaching materials are included on a CD for easy printing.

Abstract
Superflex Superdecks are card games created to invoke your own superflexible thinking as you teach students to be more superflexible social thinkers. It's all about superflexibility! The game pack is a companion teaching tool to the popular Superflex Curriculum, which helps parents and professionals teach children ages 8 to 11 about social thinking, social regulation, and social problem solving.
The Superdecks are not an introduction to Superflex, and should only be used with students who are already familiar with the concept of being a Social Detective (introduced in the book, You Are a Social Detective), and are either working through or have completed the Superflex Curriculum. The games and activities provided prompt players to think about the powers of the characters, brainstorm which Unthinkable might appear in a situation, match strategies to characters, or Thinkables and Unthinkables, and use their social thinking in other superflexible ways.
