Summary

Do you know children who get upset when their routines change? They might also struggle to see the big picture, make friends, solve a problem in real time, and read nonverbal communication. Meltdowns, tantrums, and other challenging behaviors might be common.

This audiobook was designed to teach you how making small shifts in your language and speaking style that will produce important results. You will stop telling kids what to do and, instead, thoughtfully give them the information to help them make important discoveries in the moment. These moments build resilience, flexibility, and positive relationships over time.

You might be a therapist or a teacher, or you might be a parent, grandparent, or babysitter. Your child might have a diagnosis such as autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD, or nonverbal learning disability. But they might not. No matter your child’s learning style, this audiobook will help you feel equipped to make a difference, simply by being mindful of your own communication and speaking style.

Fantastic book, would recommend

I'm successfully using the methods, with my ND children.
Narrator was off-putting and sounded robotic.

Must read for kids with social difficulties!

My son only has ADHD, and is pretty verbal and communicative, however, he misses a lot in his environment and his communication isn't effective. This book was recommended by the ADHD Dude (check him out on YouTube) as a way to get my son to think more about what he's doing, to participate in his environment and to provide a foundation for better communication. Highly recommend this book for all caregivers of ADHD and autistic kids!
