Smart Kidz Club Weekly Newsletter, April 1, 2016

April is the National Autism Awareness Month. Nearly a quarter century ago, the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability. Its signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person's ability to communicate, and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum condition" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis & intervention and access to appropriate services & supports lead to significantly improved outcomes. Some of the behaviors associated with autism include delayed learning of language; difficulty making eye contact or holding a conversation; difficulty with executive functioning, which relates to reasoning and planning; narrow, intense interests; poor motor skills' and sensory sensitivities.

We here at Smart Kidz Club have a separate category of books devoted to kids with autism. Titled Special Education, books in this category are selected by our expert panel for kids with special needs or kids with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). These books have been compiled for autistic kids of all ages and includes topics such as community, colors and shape, social stories, and other stories that are most appropriate for special needs' kids. These books contain photos and pictures to help your child recognize emotions and help enable learning and development of social skills. The very soothing voice of our "Read To Me" feature allows repetition of the book as many times as required. Since children with ASD often have trouble making eye contact and sharing their thoughts with words or gestures our books allow them to interact in a way that makes learning easier. Some children with ASD have a very short attention span when being read to or when reading, while other children with ASD may read very early and show intense interest in certain subjects and want to read everything they can on that topic. Whether your child has mild or severe ASD, Smart Kidz Club helps in making reading a fun activity for your very special child.
