Product description

It is increasingly common for children with autism to attend mainstream schools. In this book, the authors use their expertise and considerable experience of working with and observing pupils with autism to exemplify the challenges faced in the classroom. Most importantly, they suggest practical strategies for successfully meeting pupil's learning needs. The case studies bring to life the everyday concerns of young people, their parents and teachers, and provide different contexts for the demonstration of good practice.
