Book Description

21 Mar 2014
If your child finds talking to people a struggle, this is the book to get the conversation started. In this hands-on guide, Heather Jones offers practical advice, born of experience with her own son, which will help you teach your child the principles of communication. Full of strategies and examples, it shows how you can allay fears, build confidence and teach your child to enjoy conversation. Once a child gets used to talking with other people, many life skills can develop more easily as they grow up - from making friends and shopping for themselves, to being interviewed and eventually getting a job. This handy book provides guidance and inspiration to parents, teachers and anyone else who cares for a child who finds language and comprehension difficult.

Product Description

About the Author

Heather Jones's son, Jamie, has Asperger Syndrome and severe speech and language impairments. When Jamie was 10, Heather stumbled across a way of getting through to him. Over the years she developed this methodology in more detail, calling it conversational therapy, and has never looked back. Jamie is now 19 and can hold a conversation, which has enabled him to go on to achieve much more, including passing his driving test and getting a job. Heather is the Director of Milkwood Educational, which publishes ESL textbooks in the Far East. She lives in Queensland, Australia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Confident and Sure Approach 29 April 2014
By Mr. Kurt A. Lerps - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I finished reading this book, I felt that I really understood this very difficult problem and the writing made it seem like I had just read a novel. I have known Heather and Jamie since he was born and I do not think that any of her close friends had any idea of what Heather and Jamie were going through. When Jamie got up and spoke at his mother's book launch there was not a dry eye in the house.

Heather writes in a very conversational manner and you feel that she is sitting with you trying to explain her excellent approach! Heather also writes with a sense of humour, which is of great assistance. I feel that I now have a very good handle on what Heather has developed.

This book goes a long way to trying and understand autism!
