Underestimated: An Autism MiracleBy: JB & Jamison Handleyhttps://www.amazon.com/Underestimated-Autism-Miracle-Childrens-Defense/dp/1510766367/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=underestimated+an+autism+miracle&qid=1625707463&sr=8-1
To answer one of the questions I saw earlier S2C is an effective methodology for nonspeakers, minimal speakers, and unreliable speakers. So the individual doesn’t need to be entirely nonspeaking to benefit from it. If speech is not the person’s most effective method of communication it is worth pursuing.
Also encourage folks to check out MyGuide, created by an individual with Autism - https://mpm.care/myguide-care/
The ABA machine is so powerful, and so misguided and harmful.
EV learned to use the letter board and how to use it from Soma at Halo-Soma.org. Our son started RPM at the age of 40 which was 12 years ago. It has totally changed his life just like JB said.
It is a valuable topic that is so difficult to overcome bc professions have invested years in learning ABA and refuse to realize it’s all wrong.
Anne Donnellan talked about behaviors being a form of communication in the 1970’s. It has taken all these years for more people to understand this.
JB is a great spokesperson. Thanks!
This is Ginnie, Elizabeth Bonker's Mom. Elizabeth wrote about her "silent cage" a decade ago in "I Am in Here." Elizabeth is now a senior in college. All our kids are capable learners.
Thank You Jamie
I have followed JB for years & read the book as soon as it came out. Within 2 weeks, I wasdriving my non speaking 6 year old to ATL for S2C...he’s doing AMAZING with his spelling & amazes me daily!! I had NO idea he could spell, nor that he was receptive to much of anything. He’s all there and he’s brilliant. I am about to start training to be a practitioner because we have none close to here...and because I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than giving this gift to others. it’s been an amazing roller coaster & I could not recommend this more. Thank you Jamie and JB for changing our lives!!!
What is your opinion on AAC? My daughter is verbal to needs and wants but we wanted to increase her core vocabulary so her SLP is using the Proloquo2Go with her now.
Is there an audio version of this book I am dyslexic and have a hard time reading but I’m fully functional adult
Thank you J.B., Jamie, and Wendy. Wonderful.
Thank you !
