It openly addresses the impact of these behaviours on a school and offers clear guidance and strategies. The options given are realistic, practical and achievable and the Reflective Oasis sections offer an ideal starting point for self-evaluation and staff training' - Mike Ridout, Head of Access and Inclusion Service, Bridgend LEA 'All those involved in education at secondary level including senior managers and governors will find this concise book informative in helping them to understand the needs of their pupils with ASD' - Ian Attfield, Advisory Teacher ASD, Birmingham Specialist Support Service 'The book not only gives sound advice, it helps the reader to find a wider range of sources of support and information... a useful, practical guide that makes the organisation of inclusive education achievable' - Special 'The book does have a number of useful strategies and tips, but it provides more than just a list of practical points. Support staff are encouraged to reflect upon their own practice and that of their school...

This books looks at: " making good transitions from primary school " how to provide helpful INSET for colleagues (including teachers, senior managers, support staff and lunchtime supervisers) " using a special interest as a tool for learning " record-keeping, IEPs and sharing information across the school " subject disapplication and formal examinations " social strategies to employ in a large high school " useful tips for staff - what to do and what not to do " work experience, careers and self-advocacy The importance of working closely with parents is also covered, as is dealing with challenging behaviour. '...the book not only gives sound advice, it helps the reader to find a wider range of sources of support and information...The authors have not sought to minimise the difficulties or to pretend that schools and individuals will not have to change or adapt, nor have they avoided difficult questions. What they have one is to write a useful, practical guide that makes the organisation of inclusive education achievable' - Resource File

Children with autism spectrum disorders are increasingly being educated in inclusive general education classrooms. For optimal results, teachers need to know as much as possible about autism and the teaching methods and modifications that work best for these students. This is a huge undertaking for time-crunched general education teachers, many of whom may never have had a student with autism before. Now teachers can turn to "Autism in Your Classroom" for the information and guidance they need. Written by two neuropsychologists with extensive clinical and classroom experience, this new book is a concise, easy-to-read guide developed for primary school teachers. Part I provides a complete overview of the types, causes, characteristics, and treatments of autism spectrum disorders. It also explains various secondary characteristics of autism that create challenges for students, such as sensory abnormalities, behavioural issues, and limited social skills and peer interaction. Part II focuses on the student in the classroom: It covers a variety of strategies to manage learning and behaviour, such as: Modifying classwork and homework; Helping with language difficulties; Using visual strategies; Keeping students focused and organised; Teaching reading and math; Using positive reinforcement and rewards; Handling challenging behaviour; Explaining autism to other students; Teaching social skills in the classroom; Balancing the needs of typical and special students. Part III features two useful case studies. Both stem from the authors' hands-on work and consultation with teachers, students, and parents. The book concludes with an appendix of frequently asked questions about children with autism asked by educators.

This curriculum uses the proven principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) as a way to monitor the progress of children on the autism spectrum and make sure they reach their full potential. It gives adults a clear outline on what to teach and how to teach it, in order to ensure children are reaching developmental goals at this crucial stage. The book's three sections, Assessment, Curriculum and Mastered, each include built-in data collection, which is reproduced on the accompanying CD so it can be printed off. All three sections cover ten pivotal areas of progress for this age group, including reading, writing, math, conversation and social skills. The Assessment section records the child's initial level of learning and then tracks their progress over time. The Curriculum section provides the lesson plans for the skills which need to be developed, and the Mastered section is a tool for checking that learnt skills are being retained over time. It is also possible to record whether the child has adapted to using the skills in a variety of settings. This curriculum provides everything that an adult working with a child with an autism spectrum disorder would need to ensure a thorough and appropriate ABA program for the young learner.
