by David DeLorenzo,Diane Twachtman-Cullen




This is the only autism-specific book that I know of that is written specifically for those underpaid angels of the inclusive classroom, the paraprofessional aides. Certainly aides can read the numerous other books about teaching students with autism spectrum disorders and learn a great deal from them. But this book discusses some issues that do not come up in those other books, such as what the relationship should be between the aide and the teacher.'

- The Autism Society of Wisconsin

'OUTSTANDING - The one book every paraprofessional who works with students within the autism spectrum should have. Part One is concise and highlights the essential information every paraprofessional should know when working with students within the autism spectrum. Part Two utilizes a `cook book' format, making it quick and easy to access information, allowing for immediate reference. Real-life examples and proven strategies make this book not only user friendly but immediately effective for all paraprofessionals who use it. A one of a kind!'

- James Ball, Ed.D., Director, Youth Consultation Service, Sawtelle Learning Center, Montclair, NJ

'Dr. Diane Twachtman-Cullen has fulfilled an enormous need in writing a manual that directly addresses the crucial role of paraprofessionals. This manual succeeds at many levels. It is chock full of insights, tips, and anecdotes that bring alive the everyday challenges faced by paraprofessionals, and also provides strategies to address the most common and perplexing challenges.

My mother is a Para Pro and we bought the book for her to help her with her job. She seems to have been able to apply a lot of what was in it and has had much success. People with these professions don't get paid enough for what they do. Books like this are a great way for us as a public to show our appreciation for such an important field. One that is the foundation for some of our most loving children's futures.

This book is an excellent resource. It provides examples and gives you strategies that can be applied in the classroom. The book talks about behavior strategies. Additionally, it offers a detailed discussion on communication, and gives you an understanding of how autistic children process information.

It is a very challenging job to be a paraprofessional. Diane Twachtman-Cullen gives terrific practical advise in her book "How to be a Para-Pro". The book is an easy read and gives lots of solid, practical examples. As a special education teacher, I have used this book to train paraprofessionals who work with the students I am responsible for. It is a great resource.
