Autisme et TSA quelles r alit s pour les parents au Qu bec
Autisme, troubles envahissants du développement (TED), troubles du spectre de l’autisme (TSA)... Aujourd’hui, presque tout le monde connaît, dans son entourage éloigné ou immédiat, un enfant ayant reçu l’un de ces diagnostics. Être parent d’un enfant atteint par l’un de ces troubles constitue en effet une réalité de plus en plus courante. Afin de mieux comprendre le quotidien et les besoins des parents concernés, les auteures ont voulu leur donner la parole, en menant des recherches sur l’expérience des pères et des mères par l’entremise de questionnaires et d’entrevues. Cet ouvrage présente une synthèse des résultats de leurs travaux, sous une forme plus accessible, pour que les personnes directement touchées par la problématique des TSA, qu’il s’agisse d’intervenantes, d’enseignantes ou des parents eux-mêmes, puissent en prendre connaissance. Il met en lumière les difficultés que les parents rencontrent, mais aussi la force dont ils font preuve ainsi que les ressources qu’ils mobilisent pour leur enfant. En plus de traiter du bien-être des parents, il aborde d’autres aspects qui sont peu documentés, comme l’implication de ceux-ci dans le programme de stimulation de leur enfant, leur expérience de la conciliation travail-famille, les qualités qu’ils perçoivent chez leur enfant ou encore le soutien que peuvent leur procurer des inter-venantes ou d’autres parents actifs dans des forums de discussion sur le Web. Surtout, il propose des solutions concrètes pour que soient mises en place des pratiques d’intervention qui correspondent -véritablement aux besoins des parents.

Born On A Blue Day
A journey into one of the most fascinating minds alive today—guided by the owner himself. Bestselling author Daniel Tammet (Thinking in Numbers) is virtually unique among people who have severe autistic disorders in that he is capable of living a fully independent life and able to explain what is happening inside his head. He sees numbers as shapes, colors, and textures, and he can perform extraordinary calculations in his head. He can learn to speak new languages fluently, from scratch, in a week. In 2004, he memorized and recited more than 22,000 digits of pi, setting a record. He has savant syndrome, an extremely rare condition that gives him the most unimaginable mental powers, much like those portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the film Rain Man. Fascinating and inspiring, Born on a Blue Day explores what it’s like to be special and gives us an insight into what makes us all human—our minds.
*Gold Medal Winner in the Sexuality / Relationships Category of the 2011 IPPY Awards* * Honorary Mention in the 2010 BOTYA Awards Women's Issues Category * Girls with Asperger's Syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness. This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old. Rudy Simone guides you through every aspect of both personal and professional life, from early recollections of blame, guilt, and savant skills, to friendships, romance and marriage. Employment, career, rituals and routines are also covered, along with depression, meltdowns and being misunderstood. Including the reflections of over thirty-five women diagnosed as on the spectrum, as well as some partners and parents, Rudy identifies recurring struggles and areas where Aspergirls need validation, information and advice. As they recount their stories, anecdotes, and wisdom, she highlights how differences between males and females on the spectrum are mostly a matter of perception, rejecting negative views of Aspergirls and empowering them to lead happy and fulfilled lives. This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger's Syndrome.
