Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Model for High Quality Coaching offers a unique coaching model with a practical approach for special education teachers and service providers who face the challenge of providing effective support to students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). By empowering special education personnel to participate as coaches, educators can go beyond simple accommodations to actively promote a less restrictive setting, dynamically assess skills, deliver effective instructional and behavioral programming, and effectively build a coaching network to engage students throughout the school day.


Provided in this text are vignettes that illustrate the reality of special education. Additionally, approaches for addressing the real word needs of students with ASD are provided, along with evidence-based support that describes the positive results of the strategies described. This text also introduces coaching methods that will guide teachers and instructional staff to create and maintain a "solutions-focused" coaching community.


Educating Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder serves as a clinical guide and delivers a practical discussion of high-quality coaching as an emerging best practice for supporting special educators (teachers and paraprofessionals) as well as school-based service providers (speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists). It is a valuable primary text for special education teachers in training, a resource for professional development personnel, and a tool for researchers and graduate students in education and teaching programs.

  • Chapter Objectives
  • Real Life Vignettes

Review:

". . .comprehensive, well organized and practical. I liked the way the authors covered all aspects of coaching, from the importance of and need for coaching to building capacity within the system. I really like the vignettes and believe most of them added to the reader s ability to visualize specific situations and apply contents from the related sections. The end of chapter questions were excellent and provided the reader with a nice way to synthesize the content. I also liked that the authors provided the necessary forms to carry out the functions laid out throughout the manuscript." --Debbie Reinhartsen, PhD, CCC-SLP University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"The first section of the book clearly explains the authors concept of high quality coaching and the various levels of support that can be provided. Then the second part of the book explains how those coaching levels and strategies apply to assessment and intervention. The vignettes really bring the text to life! It s obvious that the authors have experience working with children with autism, and with teams. The scenarios depict situations that have been experienced by anyone who has worked in special education for any length of time. I also appreciated that the book proposes coaching relationships that can be bi-directional, with equality between the parties. I find that while I can coach a teacher about facilitating social language, teachers have much to teach me about classroom management and other areas where I m less skilled. Another strength is the clear structure of the book, with chapter objectives to guide the reader." --Sherry Sancibrian, MS Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

"A great book that has practical ideas and instructions for coaching. I thought the vignettes were especially helpful.This book was well-organized and addresses an important topic for our field." --Jessica Franco, PhD University of Texas at Austin
