Written during the third year of The Rebecca School’s operation in Manhattan, RESPECTING AUTISM: The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals adroitly describes the results of Tina McCourt and Michael Koffler’s efforts to conceive and create a new school in New York City for children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Because of the devotion of the entire staff as well as parents, all New York students can now receive a developmentally appropriate, thoughtful, and integrated education. According to co-author Dr. Gil Tippy, Clinical Director: “At Rebecca School we believe that everything we do originates with respect. Respect for the children we serve, respect for the staff with whom we work, and respect for the families of the children.”

 Dr. Tippy and Floortime™ creator Dr. Stanley Greenspan collaborated on RESPECTING AUTISM. In 2005, Dr. Greenspan became a consultant to Rebecca School, and his work with students is featured throughout the book. The school institutionalizes Dr. Greenspan’s “Floortime™” methods of teaching and its educators work to extend students’ circles of communication using the Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based (DIR®) model also pioneered by Dr. Greenspan.

 Autism Spectrum Disorders are not issues of memory or of extinguishable behaviors, but rather difficulties with relating and communicating. Throughout RESPECTING AUTISM, everyday real life students and their families generously open up their homes and personal histories to Dr. Tippy who then conveys to readers these student’s triumphs and frustrations, joys and fears as each child in her or his own way strives to experience the freedom of the world of abstraction.

 RESPECTING AUTISM introduces readers to sixteen students and their personal stories presented as case studies. In each of these very different studies, Dr. Tippy takes a thorough and thoughtful approach to introducing readers to these individuals; he first establishes their family’s story and educational background, then provides specifics regarding the students’ work as well as behavior at school. Each case study concludes with Dr. Greenspan’s diagnosis, reflections, and plan regarding how best to proceed to bring the student fully into the circle of communication.


Reviews about Respecting Autism: The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals (5):
Kupidon
The DIR/Floortime model is based on the child's unique profile (sensory, motor, language, temperament) and respects his/her need to find his/her own personality, which is more human than being able to formally comply with outer expectations, behave more normally, stay on task etc. The leader of the development of the model, the late Stanley I Greenspan, has shown how to build on child's own initiatives, enrich them, and challenge the child to reach higher developmental milestones. The DIR/Floortime model is easy to understand, but like everything which concerns helping children with many kinds of challenges it needs a lot of practicing, thinking, practicing, thinking. This book is an excellent companion for such work. There are 16 cases with some basic information, developmental profile, and Greenspan's commentaries. This book makes a good addition to other books (and DVDs) by Greenspan, from which I would recommend ENGAGING AUTISM in this connection.

Perfect!

Thought it would be more informative. My grandson is autistic. This was just chapters that applied to individual children. Was not what I was looking for.

Autism is an integral part of my family, so the title and the beautifully designed cover -- a little boy you'd love to take home with you and hug -- appealed to me right away.
Happily, the inside of the book is even better.

In this book, Dr. Gil Tippy and his mentor, the late Dr. Stanley Greenspan, introduce the reader to the DIR-Floortime approach to autism, describing the method and using over a dozen case studies. They're all about meeting readers where we are and helping us to thrive.
I love this approach: don't treat a child as a cluster of symptoms! Get down on the floor and play with him! Follow his lead! Run with him if he likes, or be still with him if he needs.

In many families, autism can cause painful failures to communicate, as parents struggle to understand a child who may be nonverbal or who may communicate primarily through echolalia. Respecting Autism will help you -- with lots of well-explained, practical examples -- to begin to communicate in ways that are engaging and fun. Feeling isolated and frustrated? Give Respecting Autism a try.

Doctors Greenspan and Tippy start with the assumption that our kids are to be approached as whole persons, worthy of dignity and respect. This should be obvious, but it's painfully easy -- as many special-needs parents can attest -- to fall into attacking problems instead of attending to relationships. This book is a wonderful reminder that we parent a child, not a diagnosis. Although this book is of great use to parents, I also think that it will be a wonderful resource for autistic adults as well.

According the the latest numbers from the CDC, 1 in 88 of us is on the autism spectrum. In my family, the numbers are considerably higher than that. I loved reading this book. I only wish that I'd gotten a chance to read it when my daughter was first diagnosed.

Dr. Tippy and the staff at The Rebecca School in Manhattan have helped so many children and their families already. This book, Respecting Autism, is a way of bringing them to families everywhere. I am very happy about that. Thank you, Dr. Tippy, for carrying on Dr. Greenspan's good work and sharing it with the world.

I have been busily reading the book Respecting Autism: The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals, with great interest. Being a parent of a child with PDDNOS autism spectrum disorder and an art teacher, I feel as if I could relate to so many of the opinions and situations that were shared. The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals book presents wonderfully the importance of the family as a whole unit, where everyone becomes accountable for their interactions with one another. On page 171, Gil Tippy, states, "We all appreciate it when our loved one's indulge us in our idiosyncrasies." Isn't that a true statement. I believe that is how many families work, where we indulge each-other's idiosyncrasies. My family is layered with traditions, daily diners, swimming on Sunday's and making silly birthday cakes that look like family pets. I feel all families love the silly stuff. The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals, encourages families and professionals to go along with the silly stuff, the self stimulation, or interesting scripts and noises being presented by the child, and then provides instruction on how to use these behaviors as one way to engage the child in therapy.
Of course The Rebecca School DIR Casebook for Parents and Professionals, follows the DIR model. Each case study presented provides a history of the child, educational practices that were being described by the Rebecca school staff and Dr. Greenspan's recommendations and then lastly a modified "Game Plan" that encourages growth for the individual child while respecting his special unique needs. Reading the insight provided by Dr. Greenspan was enlightening. I felt like I was part of the team making the decisions for the child's and families well being. It was as if I was reading Dr. Greenspan's journal or personal notes. Reading these passages made me wish that all educational institutions that deal with developmental spectrum children would respect their students like the Rebecca school.
As stated in the introduction by Gil Tippy on page 8 " I want to be on the side of this debate that believes that children have feelings and thoughts, and that those feelings and thoughts are at least as valid as the feelings and thoughts of any adult." Often times this issue of respect or seeing the true individual behind the disability gets lost by professionals in the field. To validate a child's emotions and abilities is an enormous gift for that child and their family. I believe the book Respecting Autism, demonstrates the commitment of the faculty and staff at the Rebecca School to enrich communication skills, and henceforth enrich the life of the child on the developmental spectrum.
