International Book Award Winner! Are you serious about teaching self-advocacy? If yes, this is the book for you. Self-advocacy plays a vital role in nearly every aspect of life for individuals on the spectrum: in school, at home, in the community, and at work. The more self-awareness they possess, the more individuals with ASD can be active in advocating for their own comfort, happiness, and well-being. Children and adults with autism spectrum and related conditions often receive limited support in these vital life skills, but this cutting-edge curriculum helps professionals and family members provide safe forums for self-discovery, structured learning activities and a cumulative understanding of the many facets of self-advocacy. The curriculum in The Integrated Self-Advocacy ISAŽ Curriculum: A Program for Emerging Self-Advocates With Autism Spectrum and Other Conditions (Student Workbook) presents eleven units with worksheets and activities, including scanning sensory and social environments, identifying how and when to self-disclose, exploring the history of autism, studying role models with ASD, developing media literacy on topics involving autism, and cultivating deep and focused interests for vocation and leisure time. A teacher workbook contains detailed lesson plans. Students' work throughout the lessons culminates in the creation of a personal self-advocacy portfolio, a living document that can be adjusted over the life span. Foreword by Stephen Shore, EdD.

Review:

This book will be very helpful and motivating to students with high-functioning autism and Asperger s. It will help them organize their thoughts and understand both themselves and others, and in the process develop important advocacy strategies. I recommend it for students on the spectrum who have good reading skills. --Temple Grandin, Ph.D., author, Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism and Thinking in Pictures and Other Reports from My Life with Autism

This comprehensive curriculum with its ready-to-use forms and activities is founded on both research and practice, making it a highly recommended tool for preparing individuals with autism spectrum and related disorders, starting in middle school, to lead independent, self-affirming and happy lives. The author s preliminary research shows that the curriculum may also be adapted for use with students with limited or no verbal communication skills, thus filling a significant gap in self-determination resources for this population. --Brenda Smith Myles, Ph.D., The Ziggurat Group, author and internationally known presenter and researcher

This exciting and unique curriculum fills a critical gap for educators, parents, and others who support individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related conditions. Its readable, personal communication style establishes a curricular framework that is enhanced by engaging illustrations, collaborative projects, and links to the broader autism community. By using tools for self-analysis, including Social and Sensory Scans, individuals with ASD begin a process of experiential learning that is easily generalizable to new social situations and environments. Dr. Paradiz has integrated her own perspectives as an adult with Asperger Syndrome and a parent of a son with autism with those of other professionals in ways that make the ISA Curriculum an essential resource for adolescents and adults with ASD and those who advocate for them in school and community. --Andrea M. Spencer, Ph.D., associate dean for Academic Affairs, Bank Street College of Education
