Business for Aspies: 42 Best Practices for Using Asperger Syndrome Traits at Work Successfully

by Ashley Stanford

Most workplaces are a frenzied swirl of social interaction - between employees and bosses, customers and clients, and anyone else present. People with a mental framework better suited to non-social tasks can often be overlooked and underutilised in such an environment, but this book explains exactly how those with Asperger Syndrome can get their talents recognised and become successful and indispensable employees. Following the DSM system and an easy to use format, Ashley Stanford addresses all of the issues that can arise once a person with AS secures employment, through the eyes of both employee and employer. Describing what might be expected of any employee, she offers helpful tips and workarounds not only to enable AS individuals achieve their fullest potential, but to take advantage of their strengths. In a positive and upbeat tone, she shows that with the right supports and strategies, it is possible to overcome the day-to-day challenges that trip up even the most savvy Aspie, including negotiating pay rises, employer/employee relationships, team meetings, career advancement, and choosing when to take vacation time. Drawing on her experience as CEO of a computer software company, she also suggests steps that employers and managers can take to improve the working environment for people with AS, and take advantage of their strengths to enable them to become outstanding employees. Business for Aspies will help people with AS take steps towards achieving happy, fulfilled and above all successful working lives. It will be of key interest to the employers, managers, partners, and families of people with AS.

Speech in Action: Interactive Activities Combining Speech Language Pathology and Adaptive Physical Education

by America X. Gonzalez Jim Elliott Lois Jean Brady

Children, particularly those on the autism spectrum, are able to acquire communication skills much more easily when their learning incorporates movement. Even very simple actions such as tapping and hand clapping can have a noticeable impact on their speech and language development. Speech in Action is an innovative approach to learning that combines simple techniques from speech and language pathology with physical exercises that have been carefully designed to meet the individual child's particular needs and abilities. This practical workbook describes the approach, and how it works, and contains 90 fully-photocopiable lesson plans packed with fun and creative ideas for getting both mouth and body moving. Suitable for use either at school or at home, the activities can be dipped into in any order, and are organised by level of ability, with something for everyone. The final chapter contains the success stories of children the authors have used the activities with, demonstrating how the approach can be used in practice. This will be a useful resource for teachers, occupational therapists, and other professionals who work with children with delayed communication skills, as well as parents and carers who would like to support their child's speech and language development at home.

La niña perdida (Dos amigas 4)

by Elena Ferrante

La niña perdida pone punto final a «Dos amigas», la historia de dos amigas que nacieron a mediados del siglo XX en Nápoles. UNA SAGA MEMORABLE. «Las novelas de Elena Ferrante me han tenido atado al sillón, leyendo y celebrando unas páginas donde la emoción nunca es banal.»Juan Marsé «Siempre que disfruto con un libro procuro regalarlo, y el que ahora escogería sería una de las novelas de Elena Ferrante.»Ken Follet Lina y Elena son ahora adultas y han tomado caminos distintos: Elena dejó Nápoles para casarse y convertirse en una escritora de éxito en Milán. Solo un amor de juventud que vuelve a florecer la devolverá a Nápoles, donde la espera Lina, que ahora es madre y además ha triunfado muy a su manera en el negocio local. Elena es la señora culta, Lina es en apariencia la mujer de barrio, ignorante y poco dispuesta al refinamiento, pero la inteligencia pura y la intuición están del lado de Lina. Los hechos se precipitan cuando un buen día de repente, la hija de Lina desaparece: ¿asesinato, rapto, muerte? Nadie sabe, y el barrio murmura. Desde entonces, Lina ya no es la misma y la locura acecha. Todo -los hombres, las mujeres, el paisaje, la ciudad entera de Nápoles- se convierten en testigos del duelo de una madre que no sabe llorar y un buen día también desaparecerá, devolviendo al lector a las primeras páginas de esta espléndida saga. Inteligencia, emoción contenida, escritura que se pliega a los acontecimientos y se ajusta como un guante a la trama: todo está en estas páginas donde se ha ido cosiendo una de las obras más brillantes del siglo XXI.

Las deudas del cuerpo (Dos amigas 3)

by Elena Ferrante

Sigue las vivencias de las protagonistas de la saga «Dos amigas»: una historia de amistad que recorre los años más importantes del siglo XX. UNA SAGA MEMORABLE Érase una vez dos niñas, Elena y Lila, que nacieron en 1944 en un barrio pobre de la ciudad de Nápoles, y desde entonces su historia ha sido el hilo conductor de esta espléndida saga napolitana que ahora llega a su tercera entrega. Lila se casó muy joven con el hombre más adinerado del barrio y poco tardó en dejarlo. Ahora vive en un lugar miserable, pero su ingenio no ha mermado; solo se ha transformado en rabia. Es quizá este odio lo que la llevará a capitanear las revueltas en la fábrica y a negarse a una convivencia pacífica y modesta con su nuevo compañero. Elena, en cambio, ha continuado con los estudios e incluso ha escrito una novela. Ahora vive entre Nápoles y Pisa, y se ha casado con un profesor de la Universidad de Florencia. Así, a primera vista, nada une ya a las dos amigas, pero el barrio de Nápoles donde fueron niñas aún las reclama, las viejas costumbres las devuelven a un tiempo que ya se fue, y la vida se cobra su precio. Reseñas de autores, prensa y famosos que alaban la obra de Elena Ferrante:«La magia de Elena Ferrante consiste en convertir la complejidad de la vida en una lectura apasionante.»Julia Montejo «Una mirada clara, lúcida, intensa.»La Vanguardia «Ferrante es un fenómeno literario. Le han rendido pleitesía Zadie Smith, Juan Marsé o Ken Follet, entre otros.»Núria Escur, La Vanguardia «Toda obra de arte pertenece a un autor, pero cuando es perfecta tiene algo de anónima.»Benjamín G. Rosado, Cultura (El Mundo) «Seguramente sea la revelación más trascendente de la narrativa europea en el último cuarto de siglo.»Robert Saladrigas, La Vanguardia «Ferrante es única. Sus libros permanecerán siempre conmigo.»Jennifer Morrison, actriz en House y Once Upon a Time

Hearing the Person with Dementia: Person-Centred Approaches to Communication for Families and Caregivers

by Bernie Mccarthy

Losing the ability to communicate can be a frustrating and difficult experience for people with dementia, their families and carers. As the disease progresses, the person with dementia may find it increasingly difficult to express themselves clearly, and to understand what others say. Written with both family and professional carers in mind, this book clearly explains what happens to communication as dementia progresses, how this may affect an individual's memory, language and senses, and how carers might need to adapt their approach as a result. Advocating a person-centred approach to dementia care, the author describes methods of verbal and non-verbal communication, techniques for communicating with people who can not speak or move easily, and strategies for communicating more effectively in specific day-to-day situations, including at mealtimes, whilst helping the person with dementia to bathe or dress, and whilst out and about. Exercises at the end of each chapter encourage the carer to reflect on their learning and apply it to their own circumstances, and guidelines for creating a life story with the person with dementia as a means of promoting good communication are also included. This concise, practical book is essential reading for family caregivers, professional care staff, and all those who work with, or who are training to work with, people with dementia.

Understanding Facial Recognition Difficulties in Children: Prosopagnosia Management Strategies for Parents and Professionals

by Nancy Mindick

Can you imagine not being able to recognize those you know if they wore glasses, changed their hairstyle, or perhaps put on a hat? Prosopagnosia is a severe facial recognition disorder that is thought to impact around two per cent of the population.

Nancy L. Mindick provides parents, teachers, and other professionals with an accessible explanation of the different types, causes, and characteristics of prosopagnosia. Providing an insider's perspective on the condition, she suggests ways to recognize the signs of facial recognition difficulties in children, and offers specific ideas for ensuring that they are properly supported in their learning and social development. The issues of diagnosis and disclosure are explored, and the author offers practical management strategies for helping children to cope with the condition and to navigate the many different social situations they will encounter at home, at school, and in the community. This book offers specific, practical information for parents, teachers, child psychologists, and anyone else who wishes to support the learning and development of a child with a facial recognition disorder.
