Description

Success Strategies for Teaching Kids with Autism - Wendy Ashcroft, PhD, Sue Argiro, Joyce Keohane

The perfect handbook for any teacher looking for proven solutions for helping children with autism succeed

Although an abundance of research exists on working with students with autism, teachers need the practical strategies in Success Strategies for Teaching Kids With Autism to build successful programs and services for kids with autism.

The authors, seasoned classroom teachers and consultants for a large public school autism support program, look at ways teachers can apply best practices for teaching special needs students on smaller budgets, tight schedules, and minimal materials. They offer more than 25 field-tested ideas for teachers to implement, covering topics such as managing difficult behaviors, teaching social skills, addressing language and communication difficulties, creating schedules, and organizing the classroom.

Including teacher-friendly overviews of the educational needs of students with autism and ideal teaching methods, the book also provides reproducible materials that teachers can copy and use immediately in their classrooms, along with photographs and detailed graphics that show their strategies in action.
