Description - Educational Provision for Children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome by Glenys Jones
The range of educational options available to children with autism and Asperger syndrome is broad, but choosing the right path can be a complex and mystifying task for all. This book offers advice for parents and professionals making crucial decisions about meeting the educational needs of children with an 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 maximize effect; writing effective individual education plans; working with parents and families; and enabling a smooth transition between classes and stages of education.
