Customer Review: Amazon Customer - Well finally we have a book that helps parents, school nurses, and doctors to treat children with autism when they need to go to doctor's office or hospital! This book comes with a description and quick summaries of what is Autism and Asperger Syndrome and their needs. It also comes with MANY activities and templates (including CD room) for working with doctors and child at the same time. For the child for example, it has many games (Bingo, crosswords, social stories...) and pictograms to prepare him for the things that he will see, and will happen in the doctor's office, hospital, dentist (i.e. medicine cup, Anesthesia mask, reflex hammer, x-ray...) . For doctors, it contains information charts to exchange with the family, before the meeting, about things that he/she should know about the child (sensory characteristics, food preferences, stressors...), and about what families need to know, to prepare their child, before they are in the doctor's office or hospital (like temperature measurement, blood pressure, ...). I think it is an excellent resource!
