Practical Solutions for Educating Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome By Mary Jane Weiss.
(XED Weiss 2007)
This book is designed to help parents and professionals address the unique challenges of these early learners by putting into place various kinds of support and assistance to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Further, to highlight practical applications, in each chapter of the book vignettes of real children illustrate the ideas and strategies introduced, culminating in two in-depth case studies that synthesize how the strategies described in the book can be used in combination to maximize success. The author devotes chapters stressing the importance of appropriate assessment and transition planning before introducing a series of interventions, with a major emphasis on applied behavior analysis. A final chapter on teamwork summarizes and expands on the need for close collaboration between parents, teachers and other staff, which is particularly acute when educating the youngest children on the autism spectrum.
