Educating students with autism spectrum disorders : partnering with families for positive outcomes
School of Education
focuses on practical strategies for educating children with autism spectrum disorders in the classroom. Additional features describe how to partner with families in the implementation of many of the strategies, giving voice to parents, based on recent quantitative and qualitative research. Case studies developed from real interviews with parents and educators open each chapter, and the book focuses on what "works" and what "does not work" in their collaborative experiences.
- Case studies with "What Would You Do" questions offer real life scenarios that allow readers to apply their understanding of the chapter′s contents to a situation they may encounter.
- Theory Into Practice (T.I.P) boxes promote self-reflection and an opportunity to apply material in real-world scenarios.
- A section of every chapter is devoted to how to collaborate with families to implement the chapter′s specific strategies not just at school but also at home.
- Inclusion tips provide ways to implement the chapter′s strategy for teachers in general education classrooms with children with ASD.
