'This book offers inspiration and encouragement for parents of children with Autism or Asperger syndrome who are considering home schooling their children, and also provides useful pointers for teachers and carers.' - Link: Autism Europe 'In this resource for parents, Holland describes an approach to teaching children with autism and Asperger syndrome that she developed with her own son, Billy (who now participates in a gifted and talented program). She offers practical advice on such issues as understanding body language, adapting the teaching environment, devising homework schedules, and coping with distractions.' - Book News Faced with the apparent inability of her autistic son Billy to learn and socialize with other children at school, Olga Holland decided to teach him at home. Where traditional educational approaches had produced limited results, the author's own method of teaching succeeded, over a period of two years, in enabling Billy to pass the test that allowed him to enter a class for gifted children. Teaching at Home explains the author's approach, focused on adapting to the demands of Billy's atypical mind and respecting his vivid imaginative world while attracting and retaining his attention. The author describes her use of sensory and memory techniques, social stories and humour, and gives useful advice on issues such as understanding body language, adapting the teaching environment, devising homework schedules and coping with distractions. This book offers inspiration and encouragement for parents of children with autism or Asperger Syndrome who are considering homeschooling their children, and also provides useful pointers for teachers and carers.

People with speaking difficulties are at the mercy of insurance companies who are determining how often and for how long speech therapy services should be delivered. It is also a disturbing reality that the likelihood for therapy frequency and length of care is contingent upon either the level of competence or comfort level of the speech-language pathologist or the financial policies of each institution. Often it has nothing to do with the severity or need for speech therapy. Our health care system is in no position to bankroll the long-term therapy that many people need who have moderate to profound speaking difficulties. The goal of Teaching of Talking is to make sure that any loved one, caregiver or speech-language pathologist is thoroughly knowledgeable in methods to help people improve talking since it is never known when the plug will be pulled on speech and language therapy services. Ittleman says: “I see hundreds of people with speech and language difficulties each year. By reading and applying The Teaching of Talking, you will have the confidence to help your client or loved one, no matter what the insurance company or institution does. By learning to do what is in Teaching of Talking you will be more self-sufficient and will not have to rely on anyone to provide your loved one with expert speech therapy.

This book retraces a part of this educational history regarding the placement of Greek teachers in Western Australia. Everything is carefully and methodologically documented by the author. Semi-structured interviews with a great number of stakeholders (teachers, parents, etc.) are also used to provide first-hand information, followed by a systematic analysis. The great strength of the book is a much bigger, more comprehensive framework in which the particular theme is examined; a microcosmic analysis within a macrocosmic landscape. Through this book, we learn a great deal about Greek settlement in Western Australia, about language and second language acquisition, and relevant theories, about the development of the Greek scheme regarding the secondment of teachers from Greece; all of which is supported by extended literature reviews and comprehensive conclusions.

With increasing numbers of parents choosing to educate their children at home, an opportunity exists to explore education outside the school environment. Parents often discover that classroom approaches to teaching and learning do not easily translate into the home. As a result, some radically adjust their approach to educating their children, in some instances virtually abandoning any structured teaching or learning. Focusing on informal learning, this text examines in depth how children can acquire an education simply through everyday experiences. The text sets out to challenge fundamental assumptions about the nature of teaching and learning. Research has been drawn from a wide cross-section of parents from 100 home-educating families.
