The difficulties experienced by children with autism and related conditions in inferring the thoughts, beliefs, desires and intentions of others are well documented in numerous studies

The difficulties experienced by children with autism and related conditions in inferring the thoughts, beliefs, desires and intentions of others are well documented in numerous studies. It now seems that these deficits underlie many of the social and communication problems that are characteristic of autism. Teaching Children with Autism to Mind-Read explores the relationship of theory of mind deficits to other areas of children’s functioning and describes existing experimental work that has attempted to enhance the skills associated with understanding others’ minds.

Furthermore, children with autism or Asperger's Syndrome demonstrated impairments inferring and building on the . In this article, we report a new self-report questionnaire, the Friendship Questionnaire (FQ), for use with adults of normal intelligence.

Furthermore, children with autism or Asperger's Syndrome demonstrated impairments inferring and building on the underlying causal relationships both within and across story episodes in both narrative contexts. Findings further revealed that the narrative abilities of children with autism or Asperger's Syndrome were associated with performance on measures of emotional understanding, but not theory of mind or verbal IQ. Findings are discussed in relation to the social and emotional underpinnings of narrative discourse.

I read this book when my son's speech therapist rented it from a resource library for me the week I told her I wanted to start homeschooling him. Private pre-school had drained us financially and we had seen little results, and public school lasted for two days, don't even get me started.
This might not be an ideal step by step guide as to how to homeschool a child on the spectrum. But, anyone who knows anything about Autism Spectrum Disorders knows that each individual affected is affected in varying ways, and it is very very complicated to explain them to someone who hasn't lived with them their whole life.
The most important thing I took from this book was strength and encouragement.
Olga is an amazing woman, mother, and teacher. It comes through in this book. I have read a lot of books and the informational ones are lacking what this is FULL of, EMPOWERMENT.
Even if you're not planning on homeschooling, if you just want to work with your child at home more (which is ideal for early intervention anyway), this is a GREAT read. This isn't a how to guide, but it is so inspirational it gives you the courage to make your own how to guide.---Lydia (Jon's Wife)

Although this book did have some good information - I did not find anything completly invaluable. As a mother with Asperger's who is homeschooling my son who also has Asperger's I found her conclusions to her son's behavior misguided. I would not advice purchasing this book as your first guide to homeschooling your child with Asperger's.

I haven't actually read this, but I am the author's daughter. I would just like to say to reviewer below that it may not have worked for your needs because many cases of autism and asperger's are quite unique, and advice that is wonderful for some children may be completely wrong for others. While Mom did her best to make it applicable to many situations, it's just fact a fact of life that it might not work. Thanks for buying it, though, and good luck finding a different guidebook :)

To anyone who has a child with autism this is a book to read. Lots of ways to view how to better educate your child. It's worth buy it!
