'More than just a list of practical points....The book is well worth buying and should appeal both to support workers and their managers' - Secondary School SENCo, London 'This book will be of value to all those who support pupils with an autistic spectrum disorder. However, as it tackles the day-to-day practice of teaching and working with such pupils it should be read by teachers too' - Tess Coll, autism outreach teacher 'There can be no doubt that the action suggested by the authors to improve outcomes for pupils with ASD, would benefit the inclusion of all pupils' - Special Needs Information Press 'This book will be a really useful resource for those supporting children with ASDs in a range of schools, both special and mainstream. It uses case study material collected from experience and discussions with staff, to illustrate dilemmas and strategies. It encourages reflection on practice by posing questions at different points. The book also provides many useful references to published materials and websites for readers to follow up and suggests how support assistants can work to become part of the whole staff team' - Dr Glenys Jones, University of Birmingham Specifically designed to provide information and professional guidance for people working in educational support roles, this book focuses on the work carried out by Teaching Assistants in mainstream primary and secondary schools.

Using real-life case studies to illustrate common issues faced by support staff within any educational setting, it recogniszes the often tough situations they find themselves in with pupils, and with other members of staff, and will equip them with many basic strategies that will lead to effective working within their setting.

However, as it tackles the day-to-day practice of teaching and working with such pupils it should be read by teachers too' - Special

Educating College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders is one of the first books to specifically address the accommodation of students with significant learning differences in postsecondary education. Developed with the support of Autism Speaks, and piloted at Pace University, each component of this book is scientifically-based and provides a model of emerging best practices for college instruction involving students with ASD. The text is designed to give college faculty a deep understanding of students with ASD and help faculty to productively engage students with ASD, while also meeting the needs of all students in their classes. The strategies included in the manual are solidly grounded in principles of universal design and will prove indispensible for teaching college students of varying ability levels and diverse learning styles. A companion video shows clips of students and educators that are engaged in inclusive practices to illustrate approaches that have been successful in dealing with challenging situations in the classroom.

Sending a son or daughter off to college is daunting and fear-provoking experience for most parents, but if your child has an autism spectrum disorder, the challenge is magnified many times over. Even high-functioning students with excellent academic preparation face difficulties in higher education, primarily related to communication, social skills, and sensory-based issues. For many, the accommodations and special interventions that supported them in high school will no longer be available on a college campus. This parent-friendly book, made especially so because it is written by parents, who also are autism professionals, takes the fear and mystery out of the college experience. Learn how to select the right campus, how to work with Disability Services staff, what legal protections apply, how to prepare your son or daughter to be an effective self-advocate on campus, what assistance can be reasonably be expected from residence hall managers, faculty, and much, much more.
