Point to Happy : A Book for Kids on the Autism Spectrum

It's Autism awareness month and baystateparent
received Point to Happy A book for Kids
on the Autism Spectrum  (Workman, 2011, $19.95 )
in our office. 

This book is really well done with bright, clear photographs. It's a one-of-kind design specifically for children
on the autism spectrum.  A soft pointer is included so that kids can practice motor tasks of holding and pointing. The child can choose
different foods, recognize colors, interpret everyday tasks and 
point to a feeling or emotion as the parent reads. 

We only have one copy to share with a reader, and we know autism affects so many of you. 
But if you'd like the copy, please comment here and we'll mail it to you. 

We also send you our love and support as you navigate parenthood. 
Point to Happy by Miriam Smith and Afron Fraser/March 2011

This looks like an interesting book. I haven't read anything on the Autism Spectrum yet, though I should. Maybe this is a good start. I've done more research on the SPD he has too.

I would love to have this book so I can give it to one of my best friends who is a speech pathologist that works with many children with autism. It would be great for her to use as a learning tool with her kids. She is an amazing teacher who worked with one autistic little boy who wasn't speaking at all and after a year he was able to talk to his parents.
