Description

Responding to the increasing numbers of students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in schools, and the need for all teachers to be prepared with research-based strategies to instruct these students, this new text provides a comprehensive overview of what autism spectrum disorders are, their identification, and treatment approaches; specific information on diagnosis, learning behavioral, cognitive, and sensory characteristics, and etiology; and evidence-based practices for instruction, including social skills, communication, and academics. Other featured concepts include: a model for determining appropriate, individualized practices; assessment and planning including environmental planning; information to support teachers as they develop programs and learning environments; technology and transition; and working with families of students with ASD. Additionally, special pedagogical features found throughout the book offer more coverage of diversity, trends and issues, and research. Written in an easy-to-follow format, this newly acclaimed book implements a real-world approach to working with students of autism spectrum disorders, with authentic examples and a strong focus on research-based practice, offering the best information for teachers or future teachers in today’s classrooms.
