Description - Inclusive Programming for High School Students with Autism or Asperger's Syndrome by Sheila Wagner
Successful inclusion in high school is critical for achieving independence as an adult! Even though inclusive education is now the standard for educating students with special needs, inclusion is a still a very new process. Successful inclusion relies on flexibility of parents and educators, and their ability to work together for the sake of the student. Training, collaboration, specialized teaching, long-term planning, and a clear idea of the desired outcome for the student - these are just as important at the high school level as they were in elementary and middle school. This comprehensive guide will help you give your child or student the best possible high school experience. You will learn how to help students navigate the social minefields of friendships and dating, while fostering the executive functioning skills they will need as adults. Expert Sheila Wagner provides the strategies and solutions you'll need before, during, and after high school.
The topics include: transitioning from middle school, IEP goals and objectives, accommodations/modifications, course selection, developing friendships, prom night and dating, bullying, graduation requirements, zero-tolerance and discipline standards, driving permits, preparing for college, employment options, transitioning to the adult world, planning for inclusion into the community, and many more!
