Neil Brewer spent the first twenty years of his teaching career in 5th and 6th grade classrooms, and has drawn from that journey with students on many occasions in various written forms. For his epic thematic adventure, The Travels of Harmon Bidwell, Neil received The Christa McAuliffe Fellowship, and Phi Delta Kappa International published Flying With Both Wings, the story of how 104 year-old Harmon and the highly interactive curriculum of his travels were created. The author also enjoys playing a variety of instruments, and has performed in three long-running stage productions of A Cotton Patch Gospel. Neil has also taken The 8 O'Clock Bell to the stage of The Derby Dinner Playhouse, to The Ogle Center for the Arts as a member of the Chase Bank Children's Series, and to Hayswood Theatre of Corydon, Indiana. "Three Kids in a Car" from the CD, Neil Brewer and Friends are Back in School went to #1 on Sirius XM Radio, and all proceeds from the music go to The Harvard Stem Cell Institute to put an end to Muscular Dystrophy. A frequent keynote speaker/performer for special events and conferences across the country, Neil has written hundreds of poems related to personal experiences, and performs the very best of the 'school ones' in his current presentation.
All of us - at least, those of us who have ever been to school - can relate to the humorous, yet often deeply poignant verses and music of The 8 O'Clock Bell.Currently, Neil greatly enjoys his family, his Bentley, his writing, his presentations to students and adults throughout the country, and his work with teachers in his graduate and undergraduate education courses at Indiana University Southeast, in New Albany, Indiana.
Guided by empirical research, psychological theory and illustrative case studies involving adults with ASD who have been implicated in crimes, Robyn L. Young and Neil Brewer explain why. They examine the pivotal cognitive, social and behavioural characteristics unique to ASD (such as weak Theory of Mind, restricted interests and acute sensory sensitivities) that - individually or in interaction - may contribute to individuals becoming involved in illegal activities. They then discuss how these same characteristics can result in ongoing ineffective interaction with the criminal justice system. Arguing that the forensic assessment of individuals with ASD requires substantial redevelopment to clarify the key deficits contributing to criminal behaviour, the authors highlight the need for, and desirable nature of, intervention programs to minimize the criminal vulnerability of adults with ASD and to prepare them for interactions with the criminal justice system. A final section raises some major unanswered questions and issues for future research.
This book will be of immeasurable interest to criminal justice professionals including probation officers, social workers, clinical and forensic psychologists, police officers, lawyers and judges, as well as students of these professions.
