Ten Things Your Student with Autism Wishes You Knew is a unique resource for teachers who have autistic students, presented from the perspective of the child.

The unique perspective of a child's voice helps educators understand the thinking patterns that guide their actions, shape an environment conducive to their learning style, and communicate with them in meaningful ways.

The book affirms that autism imposes no inherent upper limits on achievement and that both teacher and child "can do it."

Helpful chapters include:

  • Learning is Circular: We are all both teachers and students.
  • We are a Team: Success depends on all of us working together.
  • I Think Differently: Teach me in a way that is meaningful to me.
  • Behaviour is Communication: Yours, Mine and Ours.
  • Teach Me "How to Fish": See me as a capable adult and hold that vision.
