2 Let's Eat: A guide to mealtime management of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder *** OUT OF STOCK ***
Autism Association of Western Australia Australia Autism Association of Western Australia 2014 1921423137 / 9781921423130 Soft cover New Book 
Let's Eat! provides everything you need to know about children's mealtime difficulties and how they can be resolved. It provides a framework-based on a wide range of peer reviewed research-to help parents and teachers assess and identify the mealtime challenges for their children. With a good understanding of why the child has difficulty with mealtimes and with certain foods, it shows how by instilling fun into all aspects of food many problems associated with eating may be mitigated. We include fun recipes, fun song lyrics associated with food and templates of fun activities to reinforce the playfulness of food and eating. The book aims to help caregivers and educators work towards a more positive mealtime experience for all concerned. Although the book has been written primarily to address mealtimes, we believe that much of the information provided will be useful across a range of everyday activities. We show that important elements of a mealtime management program might entail adapting the environment, creating routines and using visual supports-well known ways of effectively supporting people with Autism throughout their day-to-day lives.

My Happy Sad Mummy, Michelle Vasiliu
20 My Happy Sad Mummy
Michelle Vasiliu Australia Jojo Publishing 2014 0987358596 / 9780987358592 Soft cover New Book 
My Happy Sad Mummy is an engaging and sensitive picture book. It fills a major gap: explaining to a young child the impact on a parent of a major mental illness such as bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder affects between 1- 2% of the population and can affect young parents in particular as it usually begins in late adolescence. Vasiliu draws from her own experience of bipolar disorder, cleverly and humorously portraying the emotional rollercoaster of this illness, as a young child might perceive it. Using easily understandable images and words, we see 'mummy' through the eyes of the child, and we see how through all these difficulties, the bond of love between mother and child remains true. A fantastic book and invaluable resource for parents, teachers and mental health workers. About the Author A published children's author since 2006 and having sold over 30, 000 copies of her books worldwide, Michelle Vasiliu's first picture book is also the first in a series of books aimed at teaching children about mental illness.
