Publisher's Summary

A best seller gets even better! Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician should have this succinct and informative audiobook in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book describes 10 characteristics that help illuminate - not define - children with autism.

Ellen's personal experiences as a parent of children with autism and ADHD, a celebrated autism author, and a contributor to numerous publications, classrooms, conferences, and websites around the world coalesce to create a guide for all who come in contact with a child on the autism spectrum. This updated edition delves into expanded thought and deeper discussion of communication issues, social processing skills, and the critical roles adult perspectives play in guiding the child with autism to a meaningful, self-sufficient, productive life. This new edition sounds an even more resonant call to action, carrying the listener farther into understanding the needs and the potential of every child with autism.

Just wow

I loved every single minute of this book. I encourage every single person to listen to it, whether you have someone you know who has autism or not. I will listen to this book again and again as it contains so many insightful, thought provoking messages. Thank you Stephanie for writing this book.

Wonderfully encouraging book- thanks so much!

This is a must read/ listen to by everyone but especially parents of kids with ASD.
It encouraged me beyond of what I was expecting and challenged me in new ways to help my son be everything he is created to be. Thank you Ellen Notebohm for taking the time and effort to write this book and your vulnerability. It is so much appreciated! It was refreshing to find someone who is tackling this topic with similar feelings/ ideologies to my own. I feel less alone. Thank you again.

Exactly the inspiration that I needed

After being referred to this book by our paediatrician, I have now listened to it. The diagnosis of our son was hard to take, however, after listening to this book, I am now more than ever inspired to make the best of the situation, to have our son be the one that "stands out" is hopefully just the beginning of our joyous journey to a potentially independent adult.... I would highly recommend this book to not only lift your spirits but also to give you a different perspective of how to view autism which can be a useful tool to add to your ever expanding toolbox. Beautifully spoken book.

Thoughtful insights but too particular

Too personal, specific to her own story towards the end. Mainly just praising her son with autism or herself and her methods through him.

Overall informative

Where does Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My son was just diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. I learned a lot from the book and will listen again and take more notes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew?

She told the story about seeing a fortune teller. Perfect example of how otherwise smart and gifted people often fall for stupid shit.

What does Stephanie Cozart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I might not make the time otherwise.

What did you learn from Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew that you would use in your daily life?

Make a great schedule for my son. I should have known this already since he listens so much better when there is a clear plan.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book.

my 5 year old son is on the spectrum. i found myself rewinding many sections because i liked them so much. I've read many books and the thing i enjoyed most about this book is the positivity and focus on changing the parents attitude and preception of their child. it was a wonderful read and recommend

Everyone should read this book.

Thank you for sharing your journey and perspective. The world would be a better place if more people knew about this information and lived by it. It feels great to make the shift to live with optimism not Autism.

Some wonderful information!

There is some wonderful and helpful point of views that this book offers and I am going to take it and use what I can. I listen to this book 2times and both times I could understand why the writer was so judgmental of how other parents were. She seemed angry. That made me sad and she unmotivated but at least I can work with some information.

A super overview

I am a paediatric occupational therapist so much (but not all!) of the content was revision for me, however, I think it is an outstanding book that I will be recommending to parents and relatives of children who have autism. She covers a wide range of issues in a friendly and easy to listen to manner, giving a generous insight into her own experiences of family life with her children. I was glad to have some aspects brought back to the forefront of my mind and think about more deliberately. Thankyou!
