One Step at a Time promises to be a book for those who need practical down to earth help in planning an authentic and meaningful classroom program for a student with autism, based on sound science and experience. It offers personal, down to earth, common sense advice that has been gained through research and experience as a mother and a teacher of individuals with autism. The book includes a comprehensive account of the learning implications of autism and practical strategies about how we can teach to these core deficits and strengths using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis in a regular classroom. Specific strategies such as prompting, fading, chaining, incidental teaching, video instruction, social scripting, task analysis, generalization, data collection and reinforcement are just some of the strategies described in non clinical and easy to read manner. The author examines the differences between Intensive Behavior Intervention (IBI) and ABA and explains why ABA methods are often very familiar to teachers because they are just good teaching. A detailed account of how to write meaningful and measurable goals and objectives that match the needs of a student with autism is included. A whole section of the book is devoted to creating ABA style Individual Education Plans and transition plans. Teachers love the practical examples of Individual Education Plans written with ABA language and methods and the numerous sample forms for data collection and skill tracking. Finally, a resource that is packed with information that is engaging, inspiring and empowering!

Jennifer, I thoroughly enjoyed your book and think it is an excellent resource. You have created a very practical tool that will certainly assist teachers as they plan for their student s individual needs. Your perspective from both sides of the fence is invaluable to all of us. I look forward to providing this tool to staff at our upcoming IEP workshops. I know they will walk away better prepared to develop a plan that will bring the child s IEP to life. Thank you for sharing your insights as Mom and educator. --Jan Fukumoto, Central Coordinator Autism Services
I loved it...your book is in written in both parent and classroom teacher friendly language. The explanations and real life examples... make it a great teacher tool regardless of whether you are working with a child with autism or not. It gives a great balance of the perspective of the parent and the teacher perspective and wonderful suggestions as to how to nurture that critical relationship in our efforts to provide necessary supports. I love the templates, especially the one to go home to initiate the IEP. As a principal, I will use this book over and over to support staff in the yearly process of creating their IEP's... You have created a wonderfully touching book that will be SO valuable to many teachers and parents who want to do the right things, but don't have the insight (understanding) necessary or the tools - you gave us both! I think this should be a must read at least for special education teachers, but I think that all teachers and all parents of children with Autism and of course all administrators, should read it. I read it this evening so it doesn't take long. It is full of strategies, resources, experiences, explanations, etc. and was well worth my time --Karen, Principal
What an amazing resource. I'm respectfully asking for permission to add this book to my list of resources for my special education students. Jen, this is a must read! You brought a face to this exceptionality. You not only described the symptomology with textbook expertise, you put us in the shoes of this child and his parents! You perfectly balanced a teacher's, mother's, father's and child's perspective of life with ASD. It is not a lament but an ACTION PLAN! Where else is a parent of a child with ASD going to get this? I've read so many books espousing the virtues of parental involvement but yours offers real hope by giving parents (and teachers) a plan! The piece about Authentic IEP development is gold! This book is an actual recipe for parent-teacher collaboration... I love this body of work. It is truly a helpful resource. --Dan Loreto, Special Education Course Instructor, Nipissing University
