This book is a must-have resource for all special educators and general educators who work with students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The strategies and teaching techniques discussed here are those that have shown great promise in helping students with ASD to succeed. The underlying premise is that students with ASD should be explicitly taught a full range of social, self-help, language, reading, writing and math skills, as are their typically developing classmates. Each chapter provides teachers with practical information about how to approach the tasks of determining what to teach and how to teach, with clearly defined steps for implementation. The approaches described here are based on the view that the classroom must be structured as an environment that reflects high expectations and provides sufficient support from teaching staff and peers. This invaluable volume offers teachers state-of-the-art knowledge on how to help students with ASD succeed.
