Written by a team of professionals with extensive experience supporting students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Making Schools Meaningful aims to provide perspectives and strategies for making the educational experience of students with ASD a meaningful and successful one. Two principles guided the development of this book that the meaningful support of a student with ASD requires an understanding of the unique learning and thinking style associated with ASD, and that the effective support of a student with ASD within a school environment requires a focus not just on the student with ASD but also factors within the immediate environment and beyond.
This book will be helpful for professionals supporting students with ASD in educational settings, such as teachers, school leaders, special needs officers, school counsellors, educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, and occupational therapists. Parents of children with ASD who are interested in advocating for their child may also find this book helpful.
Unique Features - 1. Provides educators with effective strategies to teach and engage students with ASD successfully.
2. Includes perspectives from families with children diagnosed with ASD, as well as people diagnosed with ASD themselves.
3. End-of-chapter summaries make it easy for readers to review chapters at a glance.
