Autism 24/7

Andy Bondy, Ph.D. and Lori Frost, M.S., CCC-SLP, 2009, 169 pages

If your son or daughter is over-stimulated by noisy places or has trouble communicating or interacting with people, then everyday activities like going to the playground or helping out with household chores may seem outside your child’s repertoire.  Authors Bondy and Frost, the founders of the award winning Pyramid Approach to educating children with autism, show how it is possible to keep family life running smoothly and teach a child with autism to participate in important and routine family activities at home and in the neighbourhood.  Their teaching strategies can be used during the course of everyday life without making too many adjustments or converting your home into a school.

In a reassuring, easy to read style, Autism 24/7 encourages parents to pinpoint times when their child’s behaviour or lack of skills seems to interfere with family functioning.  This step helps identify what to teach your child and what goals to set.

Other issues related to WHAT TO TEACH include:

Motivational Strategies and Powerful Reinforcement:  Using naturally occurring rewards and token systems

Teaching Functional Communication Skills:  The difference between imitation, responding, and initiating communication, as well as how to resolve different types of communication challenges

Creating Opportunities for Learning:  Determining the steps to teach a particular skill and a routine where you can incorporate teaching the desired skill

Issues related to HOW TO TEACH include:

Teaching Techniques:  How to choose prompts (verbal, visual, physical, gestural) and how to eliminate them; shaping (rewarding gradual improvement); and video modelling

Managing Challenging Behaviour:  Knowing when to teach a new behaviour versus when to change the environment

Evaluating What You’re Doing:  How to measure progress and collect data

Autism 24/7 gives families confidence and concrete tools to integrate their child with autism into life at home and in their community as much as possible.
