As students become better regulated and more able to communicate effectively, extreme behaviors decrease, sometimes subsiding altogether. While a functional behavior analysis (FBA) is usually the starting place for students with Asperger Syndrome (AS) or high-functioning autism (HFA) who are engaging in behaviors that do not serve them well, if used as the starting place for students with classic autism, an FBA has variable results, most often leaving us with the feeling that we are not making significant progress.Getting to Go! is unique in distinguishing this difference and recognizing the importance of first offering stabilization strategies that afford students a better regulated body, which often enables students with classic autism to increase their time in school, most of them working up to full-day participation.This simple-to-use book focuses on two major areas of stabilization found critical for students on the autism spectrum, sensory regulation and visual supports. With proper use of these strategies, the student with classic autism can get to GO! - that is, feeling regulated and supported. Once on GO!, the strategies that are helpful for students with AS/HF can be employed to maintain optimal game play throughout the day.

Taking Care of Myself2 is written specifically for teenagers and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). It is an instructional book to be used by parents, instructors, therapists, and individuals on the autism spectrum. Most of the information is written concisely, however, simple how-to lists are included. This book is great to use in an instructional setting, especially for those individuals who are familiar with that type of format. Teenagers and young adults with ASD typically want what everyone in their age group wants. Being able to fit in, being as independent as possible, and developing relationships, including friendships, as well as loving, intimate relationships, are important to individuals with ASD. Fitting in involves looking and acting appropriately, typical of their age peers and feeling comfortable in public and social situations. Topics such as, dressing for different events, feeling anxious in social situations, and public versus private behaviors are included in this book. Being independent means understanding and managing their health and personal safety, to the best of their ability. This includes important topics such as staying healthy, anxiety, depression, feeling suicidal, social media, sexual harassment and even rape. Forming relationships, especially intimate relationships are of special interest to teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. Several topics such as, developing a variety of relationships, as well as sex and sexual relationships are covered in this book. Other topics include: finding and keeping friends, finding a boyfriend or girlfriend, how do we define sex, safe and responsible sex, deciding to have sex with a partner, and sex is a choice.
