?  About our Ebooks


Teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to develop the 'inner voice' needed to solve problems, this book's innovative approach will help children reach logical and appropriate solutions to everyday problems.

This book shows students and professionals how to formally teach key skills for reasoning and problem-solving that aren't usually explicitly taught, such as planning, pausing and reflecting and increasing emotional regulation. Focusing on the 'inner voice' - the dialogue that goes on inside our heads during every day routines - the authors explain how to help children with ASD solve problems independently.

The book also shows how children can learn to cope with feelings of stress when confronted with difficult situations, whether getting stuck on homework, making mistakes, choosing options, following procedures that are perceived to be arbitrary, or everyday social situations. Examples of implementing this new approach in different situations are given to show the many ways of teaching these cognitive skills to children with autism.


'This text is a model of Janice Nathan's own "inner speech"- how she integrates background research with her clinical experience to develop thinking and problem-solving skills in the modalities of spoken and written language with verbal children and adults with ASD. It is a valuable resource for any speech-language pathologist working with this population.'
- Diane L. Williams, Ph.D.CCC-SLP, author of 'Developmental Language Disorders: Language, Learning, and the Brain'
