As students become better regulated and more able to communicate effectively, extreme behaviors decrease, sometimes subsiding altogether. While a functional behavior analysis (FBA) is usually the starting place for students with Asperger Syndrome (AS) or high-functioning autism (HFA) who are engaging in behaviors that do not serve them well, if used as the starting place for students with classic autism, an FBA has variable results, most often leaving us with the feeling that we are not making significant progress.Getting to Go! is unique in distinguishing this difference and recognizing the importance of first offering stabilization strategies that afford students a better regulated body, which often enables students with classic autism to increase their time in school, most of them working up to full-day participation.This simple-to-use book focuses on two major areas of stabilization found critical for students on the autism spectrum, sensory regulation and visual supports. With proper use of these strategies, the student with classic autism can get to GO! - that is, feeling regulated and supported. Once on GO!, the strategies that are helpful for students with AS/HF can be employed to maintain optimal game play throughout the day.

This handbook identifies the various social deficiencies widely associated with children and youth diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It discusses possible causes as well as the lifelong effects if these deficiencies are not addressed. The handbook presents current behavioral and curriculum-based methods for assessing social deficits. Chapters examine the various interventions that have been used to improve social skills and behavior, including video modeling, peer-mediated interventions, and script fading. Chapters also assess various interventions using empirically based procedures, evaluate the research of each of these procedures, provide guidelines for treatment planning, and offer clinical recommendations. The handbook concludes with future directions for the development of both social behavior and clinical social skills interventions. Topics featured in the Handbook include: Impairments in social behavior that may result in negative outcomes such as depression, loneliness, and suicide in individuals with ASD. Bullying among youth with ASD. Behavioral skills training to promote social behavior of individuals with ASD. The Early Start Denver Model approach to helping young children with ASD. The implementation of social skills groups for individuals diagnosed with ASD. The Handbook of Social Skills and Autism Spectrum Disorder is a must-have resource for researchers, clinicians/professionals, and graduate students in clinical child, school, and developmental psychology, behavioral therapy, and social work, as well as such interrelated disciplines as child and adolescent psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine/therapy, pediatrics, and special education/educational psychology.

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the application of the past hundred years of research into how learning works. It has universal application; it can be applied to any situation in which learning is involved. Recently, ABA has gained prominence in the teaching of children with autism—it is currently estimated to affect 1 in every 42 boys and 1 in every 189 girls—since, while there are many different approaches to treating autism, if learning occurs as a result of any of these different approaches, it will occur in keeping with “the laws of learning” on which ABA is based (you may productively think of it as remedial education for the social communications deficits that define autism). In addition, of the myriad of approaches to the treatment of autism spectrum disorders, applied behavior analysis (ABA) has the most research support and some of the best-trained therapists.

That man is a social being is almost axiomatic. Our interpersonal relation ships can be sources of the most rewarding or the most painful of human experiences. To a large measure our accomplishments in life depend on the facility with which we interact with others-our social skill. The acquisition of social skills is, of course, a natural part of the overall socialization process. However, in many instances it becomes necessary or desirable to develop further an individual's social facilities. Such skill development is the topic of this book. Two major goals were kept in mind in the writing of this book. The first was to provide a conceptual framework within which to view social skills. Such a framework allows one to understand why it is important to develop social skills, and the effects that such skill development should have. If the reader has a thorough understanding of the concept of social skills and their development, it becomes possible to make appropriate innovations and adaptions to his or her own circumstances. Without such a framework, social-skills training becomes little more than a collection of disjointed techniques. Also, without a conceptual understanding, pro cedural innovations are difficult to incorporate into training.

"In Behavior Solutions: Teaching Academic and Social Skills Through RTI at Work, authors John Hannigan, Jessica Djabravan Hannigan, Mike Mattos, and Austin Buffum address the role that student behaviors and emotional states play in schools and describe how students are generally lacking the support they need to pursue positive behaviors. This systemic behavior gap can be bridged, the authors state, by utilizing the PLC framework and RTI process to create a system of behavioral supports in multiple tiers (prevention, intervention, and remediation). However, success in this effort requires schoolwide structures that are collaborative, research-based, and practical. As such, this book provides the guidance necessary to integrate and apply essential behavior standards, processes, tools, and resources that allow the reader's school to function as a PLC that provides behavioral support at all 3 tiers through a thorough implementation of the RTI process. Readers will be able to utilize this book to develop a strong, collaborative PLC structure in their school that successfully addresses the behavioral needs of all of their students"--
