5.0 su 5 stelle A stunning insight into the rich intellectual life of non-verbal autism 29 ottobre 2012
Di Bookworm - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Reading "Ido in Autismland," it's tempting to believe that the book must have been ghostwritten. After all, we've all seen children suffering from profound autism: they're non-verbal, their faces are expressionless, they seem beyond teaching, and, sometimes, even beyond love. How can someone suffering from non-verbal autism have written such a profound book about the autism experience, about autism education, and about the usual emotional and intellectual challenges of being a teenager? Well, it turns out that it can be done and Ido Kedar has done it.

Before I go on with this review, I should say here that I've known Ido for many years, and I can attest to the fact that he wrote every word in his book. Moreover, his writing, which is a compilation of his diaries, very accurately describes his treatment and development, both during the early years when "experts" treated him like a trained monkey, and during the later years, when Soma Mulokhopadyay taught Ido and his family how to use a letter board.

Ido's book begins by comprehensively documenting the painful boredom of spending every single day for years doing repetitive drills aimed at teaching him to identify simple objects or put names to emotions. Because he was non-verbal, Ido was unable to explain that he had already taught himself to read, that he could do basic math, and that he perfectly understood, although he couldn't express, a full range of emotions. Nor could Ido explain that, in addition to understanding what those around him were experiencing, he was living in a physical and emotional environment much richer than what most people without autism experience. Institutional myopia seemed to have condemned him to a lifetime of monotonous drills, unfulfilled intellectual dreams, and intense loneliness. This makes for painful reading, but it is necessary to understand (a) the wonder of what happened when Ido was able to break out of his silent prison and (b) the incredible gift this book is to those who work with autistic people, whether they are family members or professional clients.

As Ido explains, it was his good fortune that his parents, especially his mother, never gave up. They couldn't shake their conviction that, behind Ido's silence, there was a fully realized human-being. It was this belief that led them to Soma Mulokhopadyay, who believed that Ido and children like him can communicate through a letter board.

Once he mastered the letter board (and he did so very quickly), Ido took off. Although very shy (something he talks about movingly in his book), Ido suddenly started connecting with the outer world. It's a joy to read his trenchant observations about autism experts (some open-minded, and some remarkably stubborn), ordinary educators, the other autistic children in his world, his parents, and his friends and family. One of the best things that shines through the book is Ido's capacity for love. For so many years, autism experts have thought that autistic people have no emotional life. Ido kills that belief forever. Not only is Ido's a very rich emotional world, it is both an astute and a loving one.

For me, reading the book was especially eye-opening, because it explained so many previously mystifying behaviors. For example, Ido explains that many people with autism, Ido included, have sensory awareness problems. If he cannot see a part of his body, he loses his awareness of it. That's why, for example, he likes to be tucked up in bed very tightly, under heavy blankets. The pressure this provides orients him in space. Otherwise, he feels as if he's floating away.

Ido also explains the drug-like pleasure of stims, those repetitive flapping movements that so many autistic children use. For a brain that, rather than being insensible, is hyper-sensitive, stims are a calming way for the autistic person to control his environment.

If you work with autistic children, if you have an autistic child or relative, or if you know someone autistic, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I know that the parents of most autistic children, like Ido's parents, never give up their belief in their child or their hope that, some day, their child can begin to communicate with them. Until today, though, most of them didn't have the sheer good luck to fall within Soma's orbit. Ido's book provides for other autistic children the pathway to freedom that Soma provided for him. With his insights about both the problems and the blessings of autism, those whose lives intersect with autistic people will never view autism in the same way again.

5.0 su 5 stelle First Autism Book I Could Relate To 23 novembre 2012
Di BuffaloGal - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I am a parent of a child with non-verbal autism and this is the first book I could relate to. I have amassed a large library of books on autism since my son was diagnosed 7 years ago. A lot of them have offered false hope and made me feel very frustrated as a parent whose child did not progress as significantly as others did to therapies such as ABA, special diets, biomedical treatments, and a myriad of other conventional therapies. It wasn't till we took our son to Soma, the same teacher Ido had to teach him to communicate on a letter board, that we saw a glimpse of hope for our son. Ido clearly explains, with tremendous insight and maturity for such a young person, many of the features I see in my son, but never understood- the inability to speak or control his actions, his impulsivity, self-stims, anxiety, and frustrations. Most importantly though, Ido and his mother show us it is possible for our son to have a meaningful life in which real communication is achievable without having to speak. Working with Soma and seeing the success of one of her students (there are many more out there) renews my hope and gives me a passion to keep striving for my son to communicate and to learn beyond the preschool curriculum most non verbal kids are forced to endure. This book showed me what I have suspected all along, that the current understanding about autism needs to be revised and standards of autism treatment must be more tailor made depending on whether a child has speech or not. I recommend this book for familes who have children with autism, especially those with non-verbal autism or those whose hope is faltering. I also recommend this to all educators, therapists, medical workers, and anyone else who comes in contact with children with autism. Thank you Ido and his mom for writing this brave book!

Our son is currently 9 years old, non-verbal, and considered "low functioning." We were recently introduced to the SOMA Rapid Prompting Method. The family who introduced us to RPM started this method two years ago with their own son. Their child is also non-verbal like ours, but he has progressed from a letter board to using his iPad to communicate. She recommended Ido's book to us, and it completely changed how we interact with our son. We now speak to him like we would to a neurotypical 9-year-old boy, instead of simple phrases as suggested by his SLPs. I now understand how difficult it can be for him to talk, and how frustrating it can be. We assume intelligence in our everyday interactions, and it's made (and continues to make) a huge difference! We have less tantrums and meltdowns. We assume he's doing the best he can, and now understand that not everything he does is a "behavioral problem" as we are led to believe. ABC (antecedent, behavior, consequence) charts will not fix a motor-mind disconnect. Thank you for writing this book Ido, and for sharing your frustrations and challenges. Thank you for helping me to be a better advocate for my son. I liken those who see but still don't believe to Pharisees. Blessed are those who still believe! Our son is a miracle in progress!

Thank you Ido for telling your story. Your book was very informative. I had so many questions about autism that couldn't be answered without someone experiencing it. I am so thankful that you found a way to express yourself and by so doing, you have enlightened many others. I am hopeful that sharing your experiences will have the experts rethink their therapies and procedures so others will not have to endure what you did. God bless you!

4.0 su 5 stelle provides a new perspective on all non-verbal children, ot just those with ASD 26 dicembre 2013
Di feeding therapist - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a great book for all parents, teachers, and therapists who know and work with non verbal children. It is organized in very short passages, which makes it easy to read "on the run", a few passages at a time. The writings are not only insightful in showing how much potential children who are non-verbal possess, but also helps parents and teachers to understand the seemingly erratic behaviors that children with ASD and similar conditions exhibit. Definitely worth the time and cost. You will not be disappointed.
