Silver Award Winner in the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Awards

Ellen Notbohm and Veronica Zysk are authors who know how to take their own advice. Winner of Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice Award, the first edition of 1001 Great Ideas has been a treasured resource in the autism community since 2004. Now, in this expanded edition, Ellen Notbohm (best-selling author of the revolutionary book Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew) and Veronica Zysk (award-winning author and editor of Autism Asperger’s Digest magazine) present parents and educators with over 1,800 ideas — try-it-now tips, eye-opening advice, and grassroots strategies.

More than 600 fresh ideas join tried and true tactics from the original edition, while many ideas pick up where the first edition left off, offering modifications for older kids, honing in on Asperger’s challenges, and enhancing already-effective ways to help your child or student achieve success at home, in school, and in the community.

Time is money … and 1001 Great Ideas saves you both.

  • Quickly find solutions, explanations, and strategies that speak to the variety of developmental levels, learning styles, and abilities inherent in children with autism or Asperger’s.
  • Autism publications can be pricey, and many times readers only come away with a few key points. Ellen and Veronica have saved you thousands of hours and dollars, blending knowledge from the most credible experts with their own invaluable wealth of humor, common sense, and experience.

“Genuine, commonsense advice that all parents and educators can quickly and easily use!”
- Temple Grandin, Ph.D., autism expert and self-advocate, and author of The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism and Asperger’s

“I was amazed at the number and quality of ideas, and strongly recommend that parents read and apply the advice. I learned some really good ideas!”
- Tony Attwood, Ph.D., author of The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome

“Every parent, every teacher, every therapist should have this wonderful book at hand! In a warm, accessible, punchy format, Veronica Zysk and Ellen Notbohm provide fast, fun activities and been-there insights that address the many challenges of autism, from social skills strategies to school issues to sensory integration challenges. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.”
- Lindsey Biel, OTR/L Coauthor, Raising a Sensory Smart Child: The Definitive Handbook to Helping Your Child with Sensory Processing Issues

“Destined to become a staple for those who love, live or work with children with autism. The authors’ voices are authoritative and comforting. Perhaps most importantly, they are spot on with the issues. A toolkit packed with ideas, resources, suggestions, and a good dose of encouragement, validation and yes: redemption.”
- Jennifer McCammon, Publisher, Portland Family Magazine

“A friendly voice offering parents and teachers immediately usable ideas that emphasize the practical rather than the technical. Well organized for quick reading, with major ideas preceded by helpful introductory text. A great resource that parents and teachers should keep readily available.”
- Christine Hunt, MS, special education and resource teacher

1001 Great Ideas goes beyond a list of things to do with your child who has autism. The thoughtful comments about why these suggestions are purposeful and valuable as teaching tools make this a must have for families, childcare providers and special education professionals. The insights the authors share throughout the book put the activities into a real life focus for working with children on the autism spectrum.”
- Nancy Seller, Ed.S., Education Division Director

“Great book — couldn’t put it down. So many creative ideas, and all of them detailed and easy to follow. I like reaching children through fun, so I appreciated the suggestions for games, activities and specific reading titles that we can go right to. The IEP suggestions are helpful for both parents and school staff, the authors’ sidenotes about their own experiences are insightful.”
- Karla Mayer, MS, CCC-SLP

1001 Great Ideas is just that, a treasure trove of wonderful ideas and activities! This hope-filled book not only connects the reader to the world of Autism Spectrum Disorders but also provides a multitude of practical solutions to the broad range of challenges that parents and professional face each and every day. 1001 Great Ideas is a resource that both parents and professionals will continually turn to.”
- Scott Tanner, School Psychologist & Director of Clinical Services
