Teaching Children with Autism and Related Spectrum Disorders: An Art and a Science

Synopsis

"Students with autism spectrum disorders are as different from each other as they are similar. They each present with unique combinations of behavioral, communication and sensory issues, which makes teaching them very challenging. With the understanding that no two children are the same, and that the condition of autism is not static, it follows that their educational programs must involve a specialized and ever-changing combination of interventions. Simply put, teaching children with autism is an art and a science, and this book is designed around this theme. It provides a theoretical overview for the various instructional strategies that have proved useful over the past several decades, and offers the reader a contextual framework for knowing when and with whom to use them. This book is a thorough, user-friendly and practical resource and an essential companion for teachers of children with autism spectrum disorders."
