The authors of this book explain how the design of a classroom can either poorly effect or enhance the level of engagement in instruction, the acquisition of new skills and the student's independence in classroom routines. A poorly designed classroom can negatively affect the students whereas a well-designed classroom can positively affect the student success.
Setting up Classroom Spaces That Support Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders, follows two teachers as they turn their poorly designed classrooms into autism friendly classrooms through the use of both visual supports and strategic furniture placement for each daily activity. The classroom scenarios are accompanied by detailed floor plans and schedules that flow easily within these floor plans.This helpful book also includes tons of photos illustrating the author's solutions for turning poorly designed classrooms into well-designed autism friendly classrooms; the photos are of real students in real classrooms.
This excellent resource also includes an entire chapter on using visual supports in different classroom circumstances, a frequently asked questions chapter and an appendix of resources. (Softcover; 80 pages.)
