As awareness and diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome (AS) increases across the globe, it is essential that every teacher in every classroom has a familiarity with the condition and an understanding of how best to support AS students at their school. This fully revised and expanded second edition of "Asperger Syndrome - What Teachers Need to Know" is the ideal resource to point teachers in the right direction. Concise and instantly accessible, this book gives a clear summary of up-to-date information on Asperger Syndrome, describing the common characteristics to look out for, and offering simple strategies for adapting to the educational needs of students with AS. Packed with useful tips and practical advice, this book answers the key questions on every teacher's mind such as 'Am I qualified to teach this child?' and 'Who else in the school needs to know?'. New material includes information for teaching older children and adolescents with AS, tips on what to do when problems arise, as well as suggestions for a whole-school approach to helping students with AS. This book is the perfect go-to guide for teachers, teaching assistants and those in school management who want to know more about Asperger Syndrome in the mainstream classroom.
