How parents and professionals can help spectrum kids become successful adults

Author(s): Temple Grandin, Ph.D. and Debra Moore, Ph.D.

Parents, teachers, therapists, and anyone who cares about a child or teen on the autism spectrum need this essential roadmap to prepare our youth for being successful adults in today’s world. Best-selling author, autism advocate, and animal science professor Dr. Temple Grandin joins psychologist and autism specialist Dr. Debra Moore in spelling out what steps you can take to restore your child’s hope and motivation, and what you must avoid. Eight life stories told by people on the autism spectrum, including chapters on subjects like how to get kids off their computers, how to build on their strengths and get back to caring about their lives, and how to find a path to a successful, meaningful life make this a “MUST-READ BOOK.”

Binding: eBook

Pages: 280

ABOUT The Authors:
Dr. Temple Grandin was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Temple’s achievements are remarkable because she was a child with autism. At age two, she had speech delays as well as other signs of severe autism.  Fortunately, her mother defied the advice of her doctor and husband, who recommended she be institutionalized. Many hours of speech therapy and intensive training enabled Temple ultimately to speak. As a teenager, life was hard with constant teasing. Mentoring by her high school science teacher and her aunt on her ranch in Arizona motivated Temple to study and pursue a career as a scientist and livestock equipment designer. She is a popular international lecturer on autism, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University, and the author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic; Thinking in Pictures; Animals in Translation; Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships; The Way I See It; DIFFERENT...Not Less; and many more.

Debra Moore, Ph.D., is a psychologist who has worked extensively with children, teens, and adults with high functioning autism (HFA) and Asperger’s. She created and is the facilitator of three LinkedIn groups: Linked to Aspergers, Helping Hands Mentors, and Linked to Aspie Teens. In addition to providing direct clinical services, she wrote newspaper and magazine columns for over 20 years. Most recently, she contributed to The Nine Degrees of Autism, which outlines a positive developmental model of the process and stages adults experience when they realize they are on the spectrum. Past president of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association, she recently retired from 35 years of a private practice that also served as a supervising agency for psychologists in training. She continues to live in Sacramento, California. She is greatly honored to co-author her first book with Dr. Temple Grandin.

Emily Gerson Saines, Executive Producer of the HBO movie Temple Grandin

“Every library, large or small, needs this book on its shelves. Every school, large or small, with the responsibility of educating children with autism or Asperger’s needs the guidance this book offers. . . . Last, and certainly not least, every parent will find within these pages golden nuggets of advice, encouragement, and hope to fuel their day-to-day journey through their child’s autism. . . . The wisdom she offers through this book and its personal reflections on autism will, I’m sure, ring true for many more decades to come.”
