Recent years have witnessed a marked increase both in the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and those placed alongside their typically developing peers in general education classrooms.

Developing and Evaluating Educational Programs for Students with Autism offers systematic, evidence-based guidelines—as well as tools, checklists, and other resources—for creating effective learning environments for students across the autism spectrum and the grade span. Planning, development, implementation, and continuous evaluation are examined in detail in this practical volume, which features: An overview of the ASDs, with an emphasis on effective educational practice. In-depth discussion of the ASD Program Development and Evaluation Protocol. A staff training model for personnel working with students with ASD. A detailed framework for student support teams and family-school collaboration. Specific guidelines for conducting needs assessments and student evaluations. • Case examples of applications of the protocol on the program, school, and regional levels. Developing and Evaluating Educational Programs for Students with Autism is a uniquely rigorous and thorough reference benefiting school psychologists and special education professionals as well as those in allied educational and mental health fields, including clinical child, school, and developmental psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals working with children with autism.

Finding a way of simultaneously addressing the sensory, motor, emotional, communicative, cognitive and social needs of children on the autism spectrum can be a real challenge, and choosing from the vast array of options available is a daunting task. This book provides a blueprint for an educational intervention program that is evidence-based, comprehensive in scope and integrative in its approach. Grouping techniques into five categories for discussion, the book examines autism spectrum disorders within a developmental context, and shows that interventions with autistic individuals are not only possible, but can be really successful. Specific intervention strategies and program examples for developing competencies in areas such as joint attention, sensory integration, motor functioning, impulse control, memory, self-awareness, theory of mind and empathy, abstract thinking, problem-solving, social skills and community engagement, are presented. Techniques for dealing with specific behavior problems are also examined, including toileting delays, temper-tantrums, and eating and sleeping problems, amongst many others. This book will be essential reading for families, teachers, and other professionals working with children with autism.

Tom Whitman proposes a new developmental theory of autism that focuses on the diversity of characteristics associated with this disorder, and how these develop over time. This theory is reconciled and integrated with contemporary theories of autism, including the social, cognitive, linguistic, sensorimotor and biological perspectives. The broader societal context in which autism emerges is also explored along with its impact on the family. Whitman draws from extensive clinical experience to examine common education and biomedical interventions and presents recommendations both for practical approaches to the everyday challenges of autism, and for future research. This comprehensive book is essential reading for parents, students, therapists, researchers and policymakers eager to improve or update their understanding of autism.

This book presents an international research-based framework that has empowered parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to become critical decision makers to actively guide their child’s learning and self-advocacy. Parents can use this framework to identify their child’s vision and dreams, and to work with educators and service providers to establish specific learning goals and to implement effective interventions and programs that enable their child to achieve those goals and realise their vision for the future. The book begins by reviewing available research on evidence-based practice for children with ASD and outlining the Cycle of Learning decision-making framework for parents and professionals.

According to the CDC, one in fifty American children is diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. This means more school-aged children are entering classrooms with ASDs, and teachers are being called upon to help facilitate their learning. Educating Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is aimed at providing strategies for teachers, school counselors, and psychologists to help address the needs of children on the spectrum, as well as their families. Erin E. Barton and Beth Harn draw on current research and practices to discuss the possible causes of autism and to help prepare educators not only for teaching children in the classroom but also for providing families with the tools necessary to continue the educational process at home. Included are topics such as improving communication and socialization; developing instructive lessons; assessing students’ progress; including families in educational goals; finding students’ special interests and using those to help facilitate learning; managing challenging behavior; and more. Including forms, charts, and a range of classroom activities, this is the only resource you will need to gain the insight and tools for making a difference in the educational lives of young children with autism.
