With over a hundred 5 star reviews, this boxed set includes the first three books of the School Daze Series, each featuring a different child who has autism.
Book One – Autism Goes to School
We’re thrilled to announce that this Amazon bestseller is also a B.R.A.G. Medallion winner! It’s also a Gold Winner in the Realistic Human Relations Fiction Book category of the Human Relations Indie Book Awards.
After suddenly receiving custody of his five year old son, Ben must learn how to be a dad. The fact that he’d even fathered a child was news to him. Not only does this mean restructuring his sixty-hour workweek and becoming responsible for another human being, but also Kyle has autism.
Enter the school system and a shaky beginning. Under the guidance of a gifted teacher, Ben and Kyle take tentative steps to becoming father and son.
Teacher Melanie Nicols sees Ben as a deadbeat dad, but grudgingly comes to admire how he hangs in, determined to learn for his son’s sake. Her admiration grows to more as father and son come to rely on Melanie being a part of their lives.
When parents receive the news that their child has autism, they spend countless hours researching the subject, usually at night, after an exhausting day. Teachers, when they hear that they’ll have a student with an autism spectrum disorder, also try to learn as much as they can. This novel was written for such parents and teachers – an entertaining read that offers information on autism and strategies that work.
Book Two – Autism Runs Away
Can a 6 year old get kicked out of school? Apparently. Ethan is only in grade one and already has been asked to leave one school due to his tantrums and pattern of running away when in a panic. Now, his mom’s enrolled him in a new school but remains glued to her phone, waiting for the call to tell her to come pick him up, that they can’t handle him, that they don’t know what to do with a child who has autism.
How can she trust these strangers to look after her son, just one small child among hundreds, when he has run from own parents so very many times? They don’t know the terror of losing your child in a mall or watching him run blindly into traffic.
What started as a fun chase game when Ethan was a toddler has turned into a terrifying deviation. The adults in his life never know when he might take off.
Rather than attaching an adult to his side to keep him safe, this new teacher talks about calming strategies and choices. Do they not realize what could happen if Ethan flees the building? The impact of a car on one small body? Sara is about to learn if this new school is up to the challenge.
Meet Kyle, Mel, Ben and the other characters you got to know in the Amazon bestseller Autism Goes to School. See what they’ve been up to in the last year and how they join forces to help Ethan.
Book Three – Autism Belongs
Manny is not like other children. He doesn’t talk. He doesn’t leave the house. His parents desperately try to arrange their world so that Manny does not get upset. Because, when he does, well, the aggression was getting worse. Too many times Tomas had to leave work to rescue his wife from the havoc of their son’s meltdowns. At ten, Manny was becoming difficult to handle.
Passing by a bakery made all the difference. There, they met people who understand autism, along with its strengths and challenges. They learn ways to help Manny communicate and socialize and to have his needs met.
Dare they consider letting him go to school? Is there a chance that Manny actually belongs there? You bet.
Meet Kyle, Ben, Mel and the other characters you read about in the Amazon bestseller Autism Goes to School and see how they’ve grown and progressed.
