Past Readings and Recommendations:
Redefining Anxiety by Dr. John Delony
This book is short and sweet. It’s a quick read and a great audio book. It gets to the point and offers strategies and takaways.
Teach Skills and Break Habits: Growth Mindsets for Better Behavior in the Classroom by Dan St. Romain
This book is a manual on how to work with students. This is on my list for my next book study. I am on my third read and my book is highlighted, scribbled in, and post it marked.
Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism by Barry M Prizant, PhD.
This book is written in a way that helps all those involved in the lives of people with autism. I think this should be a required book for all people! I just finished a book study with a group of educators who read this book. The reviews were all positive!
Make a Wish for Me: A Family’s Recovery From Autism by LeeAndra M. Chergey
I highly recommend reading this book from a family’s perspective. It is a great book and helps the reader gain empathy and understand what having a child with autism entails. I loved reading about the family’s journey. I felt like I cried with them, laughed with them, and loved with them.
Good Morning, Monster: A Therapist Shares Five Heroic Stories of Emotional Recovery by Catherine Gildiner
I LOVED this book so much! The author is vulnerable in her writing and tells honest stories. This book gave me insight into my own life and my own practice. I HIGHLY recommend!
NeuroTribes: The legacy of autism and the future of neurodiversity by Steve Silberman
I gained so much information from this book. It is not a story or an edge-of-your-seat type book, but it is very insightful!
Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 by Naoki Higashida
The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida
