'Baj has real family adventures, confrontations, successes and failures , and the book is positive and full of humour. It could be read by children from 7 upwards and could also be used with older pupils who have special needs.' -The School Librarian 'I think this book would be a useful addition to the library of any secondary school with youngsters with Asperger's Syndrome or higher level ASD.' - Michael Jones, Educational Consultant 'What I particularly like about this book is that it is written as a story, but clearly has the youngster with Asperger's Syndrome in mind. At the end of every short chapter there is a Stop and Think box with key questions about the characters' motivations and feelings.' - Michael Jones, Educational Consultant 'For those people working with children who have control and communication problems, this book is a must. It is not too young or easy for 10 or 11 year olds to appreciate but also not too old for younger children. It is well written with places where you can stop and discuss the book together. A wonderful read for parents or workers to read together with a child or a small group.' - Play Therapy UK 'A unique and fascinating approach to language and communication skills through story telling. This book can be read independently by children or with the help of an adult. I feel it could have a profound impact on all children with communication problems as well as children who are immature socially and emotionally. Throughout the book "Stop & Think" questions prompt the reader/user to explore feelings, emotions and reactions to a variety of events throughout the story thus encouraging a greater understanding of theirs and others feelings, body language and situations. This book is a great tool for many communication disorders and difficulties not just Aspergers Syndrome.' - NAGC Newsletter (National Association of Gifted Children) 'A science fiction story for children with autistic spectrum disorders, designed to help them overcome various challenges and become strong communicators.' - Current Awareness Service "Awwwwesommme!" Anda whispered as Baj unfurled the cape. Baj was speechless as the cape waved and swirled in the air, almost as if it had a life of its own. Baj lives on the planet Aular and in many ways is like any other kid, but he has trouble keeping eye contact, waiting his turn in conversation and understanding instructions. Will Baj ever get good at working out how other people feel and why? How can he control his "jumbly" words when he's upset or mad? When Baj is given a special present - a magical communication kit - he has the chance to discover the complex rules of social skills. An invisible Calming Cape comforts his body, making it easier to keep his cool in difficult situations; a Word Launcher guides him in choosing the best words for the situation; and Listening Aids help him spot the most important words when people talk. Do these magical instruments mean Baj will become a strong communicator? And can he learn to communicate without them? To see, join Baj on his flying bicycle as he ventures on space age adventures in communication! This entertaining adventure story will capture children's imaginations while exploring the complexities of the social world. Children can read about Baj's experiences independently or with a parent or helper, and the reader can learn about body language and the unspoken rules of communication. Parents and teachers can also use this book to teach social skills to children in storytelling groups. "Stop and Think" questions that pepper the book prompt the reader to think about how they feel and react to events in the story, offering opportunities for individualized learning.

The sequel to Blue Bottle Mystery, this is a science fiction novel for kids, with a difference. Ben is learning to cope with his newly diagnosed Asperger Syndrome, but when an alien crash-lands in his back yard, things really get complicated. The alien, Zeke, knows nothing about Earth's rules and norms and it is up to Ben and his friend Andy to help Zeke survive. The humorous parallels between the alien's inability to relate to humans and Ben's own idiosyncrasies highlight the difficulties Aspie kids face every day. Of Mice and Aliens is not just another kids' book. As well as being a delightful read for anyone who loves adventure, it is a valuable teaching tool that demystifies children with Asperger's, justifying their individuality as valid and interesting.

'If you want a child with Asperger’s syndrome to comply with a social or family rule, it is very important to explain the logical reason to comply. Laurie’s book provides the logic for compliance that will be invaluable for parents and teachers. I know this book will become regular bed time reading and be used many times at home and at school.' - Professor Tony Attwood 'Dr. Laurie clearly understands how children with limited flexibility and difficulty coping think and respond. She has used her clinical experience to teach us how to help these children succeed. Dr. Laurie has provided a format, similar to Social Stories (TM), for reducing stress in daily life and for minimizing conflict stemming from unwritten or everyday rules. While there is no one solution for every child, the stories can be easily adapted for each child. She encourages children to be participants in determining solutions to their problems by providing simple, not simplistic, methods that work.' -Teri Wiss, M.A., O.T.R./L., Director of Development is CHILD'S PLAY! Why do I have to go to school before the show that I am watching is over? Why do I have to wear shoes and a jacket when I go outside? Rules like these can be really frustrating - but they don't have to be! Why do I have to? looks at a set of everyday situations that provide challenges for children at home, with their friends, and at school. Laurie Leventhal-Belfer empathizes with children's wish to do things their way, explains clearly why their way does not work, and provides a list of practical suggestions for how to cope with these challenges and avoid feelings of frustration. This is the ideal book for children who have difficulty coping with the expectations of daily living, as well as for their parents and the professionals who work with them.

This unique treatise expands on the philosophy of technology to argue for a psychology of technology based on the complex relationships between psychology, biology and technology, especially in the light of our relationships with our digital devices, our online lives, and our human experience. Drawing from disciplines ranging from philosophy and evolution to cognition and neuroscience, it examines myriad aspects of the brain’s creative development: the cognitive, sensory, and motor processes that enable technological progress and its resulting efficiencies and deficiencies along with our discomforts and pleasures. These experiences are key to behavioral and affective processes in technology, manifest in such diverse phenomena as multitasking, the shift in tech design from ergonomics to hedonomics, and the many types of online problem behaviors. Through these rich pages, readers can understand more deeply the history and future of human adjustment and adaptation in an environment intertwined with technology—and, with the ascendance of video games and virtual reality, new conceptions of the human self. Among the topics covered: Could we have remained a tech-devoid society? Technology, ergonomics and the non-executive functions of our body. New directions in brain-computer interface. From avatars and agents to virtual reality technology.“br> On measuring affective responses to objects. Psychology, technology, ethics, and culture. A timely lens on a field that will grow in importance as it shapes our existence, Psychology of Technology will be read and discussed by not only psychologists, social scientists, and behavioral scientists, but also by technology designers and developers and those in biotechnology.
