Ellen’s personal experiences as a parent of children with autism and ADHD, a celebrated autism author, and a contributor to numerous publications, classrooms, conferences, and websites around the world coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum.

This new edition sounds an even more resonant call to action, carrying the reader farther into understanding the needs and the potential of every child with autism.
A child’s voice leads into each chapter, offering a one-of-a-kind exploration into how ten core characteristics of autism affect our children’s perceptions and reactions to the surrounding physical, sensory and social environments. This revised and updated third edition sharpens the focus on these basic aspects while expanding on how our own perspectives shape the life of our child and ourselves, today, tomorrow, and for years to come. An all-new section illuminates the surprising breadth of our power of choice and outlines potent strategies for strong decision-making in every situation.
Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative book in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book lists the top ten characteristics that help illuminate—not define—children with autism.

Annie Rushton leaves behind an unsettling past to join her brother on his Montana homestead and make a determined fresh start. There, sparks fly when she tangles with Adam Fielding, a visionary businessman-farmer determined to make his own way and answer to no one. Neither is looking for a partner, but they give in to their undeniable chemistry.
Annie and Adam's marriage brims with astounding success and unanticipated passion, but their dream of having a child eludes them as a mysterious illness of mind and body plagues Annie's pregnancies. Amidst deepening economic adversity, natural disaster, and the onset of world war, their personal struggles collide with the societal mores of the day. Annie's shattering periods of black depression and violent outbursts exact a terrible price. The life the Fieldings have forged begins to unravel, and the only path ahead leads to unthinkable loss.
Based on true events, this sweeping novel weaves a century-old story, timeless in its telling of love, heartbreak, healing, and redemption embodied in one woman's tenacious quest for control over her own destiny in the face of devastating misfortune and social injustice.

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 1800 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.

“When my grandson was diagnosed with autism, I devoured dozens of books and hundreds of articles. Just when I was sure I couldn't read anything new, I picked up The Autism Trail Guide. It’s helped me more than any book I've read. Ellen Notbohm's writing is inspiring, and she gives me strength and hope every day to help Jake.”
~ Jennifer Hutchinson, author of Unlocking Jake
“The Autism Trail Guide is GREAT! I suggest this book to any parent with a child on the spectrum, and to any teacher of that child. Thank you to the author, for opening my eyes even wider on what I can do as a parent as well as help my child's educators and specialists better understand him.”
~ Michelle F. Buff, Founder, Appetite Solutions
“I'm renaming The Autism Trail Guide ‘The Support Group Guide.’ The essays flow so seamlessly that we use two for each meeting, concentrating on one for as long as it takes, then touching on the other for the next meeting. We pick up the new topic, and refer to the prior one when necessary. If the author had this in mind when she compiled the book, she’s a genius!”
~ Linda Hamati, autism parent support group leader
10 choses que votre enfant autiste aimerait que vous sachiez nous plonge dans le monde intérieur de nos enfants différents. En partant des constats simples auxquels ils sont confrontés au quotidien – difficulté de communication, vie sensorielle compliquée, limites qu’on leur impose… –, ce livre explique comment ces difficultés affectent leur personnalité et leurs réactions.
Maman d’un enfant autiste, Ellen Notbohm nous invite à réfléchir sur l’importance des exigences sociales auxquelles sont confrontés les enfants atteints d’autisme, que ce soient les attentes et les perspectives que les adultes nourrissent à leur égard comme la nécessité d’acquérir une autonomie suffisante en grandissant.
Mère d’un garçon autiste, l’auteure décrit les exigences sociales auxquelles un jeune autiste doit faire face, mais aussi l’importance décisive des attentes que les adultes nourrissent à son égard. Avec bienveillance, elle réfléchit sur la façon dont nous pouvons être le meilleur guide pour l’enfant dans son parcours vers l’épanouissement et l’autonomie.
Un livre rempli d’empathie, d’humour et d’amour.
