    Students with autism or autism spectrum disorders (ASD) require specialized teaching strategies in order to be successful in the inclusive classroom.  Teaching Students with Autism & Asperger’s Syndrome in the Inclusive Classroom, by Paula Kluth, provides educators with classroom-tested, easy-to-follow strategies for helping students with autism succeed in K-12 inclusive classrooms.

    This six-page (tri-fold) laminated guide is a valuable quick-reference tool for teachers, support staff and all those working with students with autism and students on the autism spectrum, including those with Asperger's syndrome, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), and Rett syndrome. It defines important terms and offers practical advice on topics such as creating a comfortable classroom, building a supportive classroom community, and creating lesson plans with students with autism/ASD in mind.

    Teachers will also learn how to overcome obstacles commonly faced when working with students with autism and Asperger's syndrome, including

    • Difficulty with transitions/change
    • Resisting classwork
    • Problems with organization/managing homework
    • Inappropriate behavior
    • Sensory sensitivities

    The guide also provides easy-to-follow suggestions for helping students with autism/ASD prosper and thrive emotionally and shine socially, including ways to help students do their best in all situations and having them participate in situations and activities where they can succeed.

    In addition to being a valuable classroom resource for teachers, aides and support professionals, this concise yet comprehensive guide is also a perfect tool for pre-service or in-service professional development. Parents will also benefit from the strategies outlined in the guide.
