    Supporting Students with Autism
    For students at secondary school, each day brings a different set of challenges to be faced - especially for the increasing number of young people diagnosed with autism. Not only do secondary students have to contend with the anxieties that come with adolescence, they also have to learn to cope with increasingly difficult work across numerous subject areas, and the added pressure of exams.

    This book helps teachers develop subtle learning strategies that will help create an inclusive, quality teaching environment where pupils with autism can be supported during this time of change. It breaks down the key areas of
    potential difficulty and offers step-by-step strategies, ideas, case studies and links to resources in a style that is easy and accessible.

    Key topics include transition, assessment, anxiety support, behaviour, social skills and communication, and teasing and bullying. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting Students with Autism is the ultimate troubleshooting guide that every secondary school teacher should have to hand.

  • Teachers Voyaging in Plurilingual Seas: Young Children Learning Through More Than One Language
    Teachers Voyaging in Plurilingual Seas: Young Children Learning Through More Than One Language
    This book is about young children who learn through more than one language in Aotearoa New Zealand.

    A considerable body of knowledge exists on second language learning but this work charts new territory in its focus on the experience of young children who learn in a home or heritage language other than English. This includes children learning in te reo Maori, as well as children with Pasifika and immigrant community languages.

    A central theme of the book is that early childhood educators can foster and validate the multiple languages children and their families bring, through thoughtful planning, pedagogy and practice.

    The book is based on research done through the Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) and draws on the experiences of four very different early childhood education centres. It offers innovative strategies for representing and incorporating the languages and cultural practices of children and their families into the curriculum.

    This book is full of passion and insights that respect the richness and importance of language diversity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

  • What's the Buzz with Teenagers?: A Universal Social and Emotional Literacy Resource
    What's the Buzz with Teenagers?: A Universal Social and Emotional Literacy Resource
    Pre-teens and teenagers are faced with a continually changing and complex social world that not only involves face-to-face action, but also online and social media interaction. What's the Buzz with Teenagers? offers a highly practical programme designed to explicitly teach young people to get along and maintain healthy relationships with their friends, family and the broader community.

    Embracing current thinking on 'self-awareness and behaviour transformation' in adolescents, it uses highly interactive role plays, film-making, thinking exercises, quizzes, group discussions and confidence-building games to improve social skills and promote inclusion in a fun, effective and appealing way. Easy to implement in upper primary and middle schools, in healthcare settings and beyond, What's the Buzz with Teenagers?:

    is a deeply structured resource to teach young people in the 12- to 15-year-old developmental range;

    offers a connecting approach to bring young people together to learn without the pressure of 'getting social interaction right' all the time;

    aims to normalise the anxieties, sensitivities and loneliness that many young people experience during adolescence by sharing thoughts and exploring this common ground;

    explicitly teaches how to 'read' the emotional needs of others, show empathy and build relationships; and

    uses a developmental model that ensures relevance and inclusion to young people with a broad range of backgrounds, abilities and challenges.

    The programme provides lessons that educators and health professionals can adapt to suit their individual circumstances and time frames, and creates a framework for a warm, engaging and interactive space in which learning is optimised.

    The book is complemented by the website www.whatsthebuzz.net.au, which offers online downloadable resources and a further six lessons.

    Also available are What's the Buzz?: A Social Skills Enrichment Programme for Primary Students and What's the Buzz? For Early Learners: A Complete Social Skills Foundation Course.

  • Whole-brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind
    Whole-brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind
    Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your 11-year-old sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents' lives endlessly challenging? No - it's just their developing brain calling the shots! In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child's brain is wired and how it matures. The 'upstairs brain', which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-20s. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child's brain and foster vital growth.
    With clear explanations, age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles, and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives. 'Siegel and Bryson have created a masterful, reader-friendly guide to helping children grow their emotional intelligence. This brilliant method transforms everyday interactions into valuable brain-shaping moments. Anyone who cares for children - or who loves a child - should read The Whole-Brain Child.' Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
