Quantity in Basket: None
©2012. By Kirstina Ordetx. Teaching Theory of Mind: A Curriculum for Children With High Functioning Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and Related Social Challenges provides teachers and other education professionals with a comprehensive yet easy-to-follow curriculum for teaching children with high functioning autism, Asperger's syndrome, and related social challenges to relate to and interact with others successfully by developing fundamental Theory of Mind skills.
The first half of the book provides useful background information on Theory of Mind as it relates to children with ASD, an overview of the aims and scope of the curriculum, and twelve 60-90 minute lesson plans that draw on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. The lesson plans are varied, and each one is accompanied by a letter to provide parents or caregivers with a summary of the day's lesson and recommended activities for practicing the skills at home.
The second part of the book provides all of the supplementary materials needed for the lessons, including an assessment checklist, a social skills poster and 220 flash cards, printed on thick paper, which can either be cut out from the book or photocopied.
Clear and effective, this is an essential resource for teachers in special education and mainstream settings and other professionals working with children with ASD, including behavioral therapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and school and guidance counselors.
