Making Inclusion Work for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Evidence-Based Guide

Overview

An indispensable resource for K–12 educators and autism specialists, this highly practical book shows how to include students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in general education settings. Tristram Smith and his associates present a research-based, step-by-step process for assessing students at a range of skill levels, planning and implementing successful inclusion programs, and working as a team with other professionals and with parents. The book is packed with specific strategies for helping students with ASD follow the daily routine, learn from the general education curriculum, interact with peers, and overcome problem behavior. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, it features dozens of reproducible worksheets and forms.
