The Way to A
Empowering Children with Autism Spectrum and Other Neurological Disorders to Monitor and Replace Aggression and Tantrum Behavior

Help young children avoid meltdowns!  Children with ASD are often confused by our world of rules and consequences, including how their behavior impacts another person or situation. The result is often meltdowns. The Way to A: Empowering Children with Autism Spectrum and Other Neurological Disorders to Monitor and Replace Aggression and Tantrum Behavior, designed for children ages three to nine years old, presents a simple and logical strategy that teaches the child how to manage his behavior. What sets this strategy apart is that it then goes on to give the child a personal incentive to use the new behavior. Developed for visual learners, the book's laminated pages may be written on and wiped clean as new situations come up. The illustrations are delightful and use the concrete nature of red and green, A and B, to illustrate correct and incorrect pathways. In addition, thinking bubbles, arrows, and boxes help make the book easy to follow and understand. The flowchart at the end of the book allows the the student to review her choices and celebrate the successful moments.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - This book has changed my life as a parent and an Autism teacher. My daughter used to have multiple meltdowns daily until we read this book and now she is able to identify A choices and choose A instead of B. With my students, it is truly amazing as well. They are not only making A choices, but identifying B choices that others are making! I have many of the general education teachers using the vocabulary and book as well. I definitely recommend it to all parents, teachers and caregivers.

Customer Review: Amy Wine - Product is easy to follow, straight to the point, allows for interaction with the child. Well received by my High Functioning Autistic son. Now we just say are you going to choose A or B and he chooses the appropriate answer most of the time. Our fits and screaming have decreased with the use of this book. Sometimes he just chooses B anyway. :-)

Customer Review: Lisa Stanley - This book was recommended by a behavior specialist who observed a student at my school. The specialist said that the book would provide easy-to-implement strategies and would be age-appropriate for a 6-year-old. We were so pleased with this book that we purchased more copies so that parents could have one copy as a reference to reinforce the strategies at home. This probably isn't a great tool for most students above the age of 10, but for lower elementary students who need support with behavior management, this is a definitely jewel.
