Autism Every Day:
Over 150 Strategies Lived and Learned by a Professional Autism Consultant with 3 Sons on the Spectrum

by Alyson Beytien

Item: 9781935274506

Format: softcover

Pages: 275

Stemming from a wealth of both professional and personal experience, this guidebook combines real-life stories of challenges and successes with practical ideas for handling autism, every day. Autism consultant Alyson Beytien outlines over 150 tried-and-true techniques for home, school, and community.

Alyson’s three boys cover the whole spectrum of autism — Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and classic autism. She understands the wide range of needs these children have and has discovered what helps and what hinders. Covering a full gamut of issues — from picky-eating and echolalia to IEPs and “The Woes of Walmart” — Alyson’s ideas and interventions will inspire and inform all those who are connected to a person with autism.

Alyson believes that each day brings more opportunities to learn, problem-solve, and celebrate the joys that children with autism bring to our world — after all, today’s crisis is tomorrow’s humour. Her family’s motto will soon become your everyday mantra: “Improvise and Overcome!”

“Alyson is able to turn the mundane into the extraordinary, and deliver life’s important messages in ways that resonate and linger.”
- Diane Twachtman-Cullen, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Editor-in-Chief, Autism Spectrum Quarterly

“I know that as a caregiver myself, practical ideas are invaluable. Even as just a place to start from when working with a student. If it doesn’t work, it is still helpful — because we then know what doesn’t work and how can we build on it and go from there.”
- Bonnie Sayers, Autism Editor - http://autismspectrumdisorders.bellaonline.com

“Alyson has done a fantastic job in developing a family- and professional-friendly book, all rolled into one!”
- Sharon Rettinger, Parent

“Written by a mother and autism expert, Autism Every Day combines wisdom with humor and what we know with practical applications and how-to’s. The author’s writing style is like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a parent at a support group.”
- Marty Murphy, Individual with Autism

“I like how Alyson has grouped the information into the four areas. The target groups she identified will be able to find the information they are most interested in within those chapters, while other groups can ‘cross over’ and see the other the side of an issue — working with the child at home or in a public place.”
- Gretchen Wilson, Founder, Sean Ashley House, www.seanashleyhouse.org

“I was excited to see topics that are not often touched upon such as food, grief, sexuality, and dealing with the downside of parent involvement in the IEP process.”
- Mary Tara Wurmer

“I would recommend reading Autism Every Day because it is written with important information AND helpful, practical strategies. The book’s author is credible because of her own personal experiences and educational background.”
- Tyann Rouw, Parent
