The range of educational options available to a child with Autism and Asperger syndrome is broad, but choosing the right path can often be a complex task for all involved. This book provides information and advice for professionals and parents making crucial decisions about meeting the needs of children with autistic spectrum disorder. It covers the range of intellectual ability from those having severe learning difficulties to those of above average intelligence. Practical advice for those working with children from preschool to post-16 is given on: choosing the most appropriate educational placement; making decisions on which educational interventions to follow; creating an effective educational environment; working with staff and other children to maximum effect; writing effective individual education plans; working with parents and families; enabling a smooth transition between classes and stages of education; and life beyond school.
