Kate C. Wilde has struck gold with her book Autism Abracadabra: Seven Magic Ingredients to Help Develop Your Child's Interactive Attention Span. Using a wealth of knowledge gained from more than 30 years working closely with autistic children in a one-to-one play environment, Wilde delivers 180+ creative activities/games to increase connection and encourage spontaneous social interaction. Teeming with valuable real-life scenarios, clear-cut concepts, material lists, observation sheets, and endless enthusiasm, Autism Abracadabra enables families to connect through positivity and joy.
When my 3-year-old son was diagnosed with autism, and I was looking for help, Kate Wilde was one of the amazing teachers I was blessed to encounter (there is some magic right there!). She changed our lives! Since that time she has put 19 more years of experience under her belt. One would be hard pressed to find anyone who knows more about loving and helping children/adults with autism to thrive than Kate. With Autism Abracadabra, Kate has once again "magically" created a how to book that will change you, and your child's, life for the better. No hocus pocus here - the magic on these pages is real!"
This is a Book of Magic that teaches powerful keys to unlocking how to help our loved ones with autism! As an autism mum, a paediatric doctor for more than 2 decades, an education dean in a medical school, and a director of an autism non-profit organisation, I can safely say that I learnt more practical tips and techniques to help people with autism communicate and interact more effectively in the most fun and magical ways through this book! Pure and powerful magic indeed!
This book is so practical and a must-read for anyone working with differently abled children.
