Educational Strategies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Focusing on educational and instructional strategies that are successful with students with autism spectrum disorders, Educational Strategies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders profiles the most current, research-based interventions that can be implemented by teachers in a classroom setting. Because autism spectrum disorders are on a continuum, educational placements can range from specialized autism classrooms to full-time inclusion in a general education classroom. It is important for teachers and staff to understand the various educational strategies that are available. It is the goal of this book to provide interventions and strategies to help teachers and staff best serve students on the autism spectrum. Strategies include applied behavior analysis, the Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-Based (DIR) model, discrete trial training, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT), Sensory Integration Therapy, and Social Stories, among others.
