Publisher's Summary

Positive Parenting for Autism delivers practical guidance that will empower parents to implement the techniques used by professionals to help their child with autism build essential social and life skills in an encouraging, affirming way. 

Raising a child with autism is one of the most challenging responsibilities any parent can face. It can be difficult to manage the commitments of daily life and also feel as though you’re doing all you can to support the development of your special needs child. Positive Parenting for Autism delivers scientifically-proven techniques to practice in your day-to-day life to help your child develop the essential skills they need to thrive and live a fulfilling life with autism. 

Written by board certified behavior analyst and therapist, Victoria Boone, Positive Parenting for Autism provides concrete tools to help you develop personalized behavior change plans aimed at both increasing your child’s positive behaviors and decreasing unwanted or problem behaviors associated with their autism. Based on the principles of applied behavioral therapy (ABA), Positive Parenting for Autism offers strengths-based strategies that will empower you to help your child with autism meet, and even exceed, the goals you envision for them. 

Compassionate and effective, Positive Parenting for Autism offers: 

  • Clear, easy-to-understand explorations of core ABA strategies such as using positive vs. negative reinforcement, teaching complex behaviors, practicing social skills, coordinating with educators, and more, to help your child manage daily life with autism. 
  • Real-life examples of these techniques in practice to help you understand how these new skills and strategies address the everyday situations you and your child with autism face. 
  • Guidance for creating a program of action for your child based on the proven strategies and techniques of ABA that are tailored to the unique needs of your child with autism. 

Parenting a child with autism presents unique challenges. But with the thorough, practical guidance in Positive Parenting for Autism, you’ll feel confident using these effective skill-building techniques to bring about positive, lasting change in your child’s life.

Powerful tools for parents. I don't believe your child needs to have autism to benefit from this book.

Amazing

Very informative! I was unsure as to what the method of ABA was before this and was able to identify and modify certain behaviors I was doing myself that was actually hindering my sons progress! I started implementing this procedure half way through the book and in 2 days I already saw an improvement in his communication and progress with potty training & other behaviors!

Great info for my 6yr old with ASD, Delayed Speech, and aggressive behavior

Very useful information! I have felt so lost and deflated working with my son on his aggression and tantrums and this gave me so many useful ideas and how to apply them! I thought the narration was a computer at first and that threw me off but it didn’t bug me after the first chapter. If that is throwing you off, stick with it - it’s a great listen!

Absolutely awesome

This book applies to everyone, not just parents with atypical (special needs) children. I share this title with everyone that needs help with ABA (all or any social skills). For the non knowing, social skills include more than just talking with others. Love this book! Thank you Ms Boone; you're amazing!
