“I teached him to talk”

by Marion Van Arsdell

“I Teached Him to Talk”: Stories of Children with Autism chronicles two years in an innovative program for children with autism spectrum disorder. The author, an experienced teacher, presents intimate portraits of preschoolers who confront enormous challenges as they struggle to learn skills that come easily to most children. Although their progress is slow and sometimes arduous, this book also captures the wonderful and often humorous moments when a child succeeds at something they have never done before. This book is a resource for parents, teachers and therapists who are looking for answers to the question, “Where do we begin and how do we reach children who learn in such different ways?” Most of all, this book offers hope and reassur-ance to families and teachers that their efforts and creativity can help children move from isolation to interaction. "Marion VanArsdell captures us as readers and educators with her vivid descriptions of class-room student interactions that come alive on the page and in our hearts. She translates these classroom situations into learning experiences for educators and offers practical, insightful, realistic advice on how to guide students to promote their development. These poignant situations coupled with the sage advice of Ms. VanArsdell based on her years of classroom experience is a must read for teachers." Dorothy Molnar, Ed. D.Professor of Education, Elms College
