Autism In Your Classroom
Quantity in Basket: None
©2007. By Deborah Fein, Ph.D. and Michelle A. Dunn, Ph.D. More and more children on the autism spectrum are being mainstreamed into regular education classrooms. General educators need to have a knowledge base of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in order to provide modifications and accommodations to create a successful learning environment for all students. This resource provides concise knowledge and guidance for teachers that are already overextended. Section one discusses the history of autism and explains the specific criteria required for a diagnosis as well as causes, treatments, and the impact autism can have on families. Section two focuses on the student with ASD in the educational setting. The authors offer advice on placement, and chapters include information on sensory, motor, language, social skills, academics, and behavior issues in easy to read, ready to apply language. The book also includes two case studies of children who were mainstreamed for at least part of the day-- one successfully, and one unsuccessfully. Outlines of what worked and what areas needed improvement show how the authors' advice can be used in a practical way. (Softcover; 319 pages.)
