Issue 17: Autumn 2012


Includes a double page spread on the best apps for autism (‘Apps-olutely fabulous?’). We look at different types of app and how they can help with different skills before rounding up the best apps under each kind of category. We loved compiling The View From Mars, in which we interviewed four dads of kids with autism. We rounded off with a popular feature – Saying No Without the Volcano. This focuses on setting boundaries without experiencing meltdowns. Child psychologist Tanya Buryon, author Liz Hannah and international speaker Brenda Smith Myles all contribute to the melting pot of great ideas and there’s a helpful further reading list for parents whose kids struggle with controlling their temper.
