It is designed for teachers and assistants supporting children with Asperger syndrome in mainstream schools and other non-specialist settings. The book provides up-to-date information on the latest developments in this area and relates this to educational practice. With examples of innovative strategies and approaches to facilitate progress in learning, this new edition:

  • outlines the underlying impairments and their educational implications;
  • explores the process of assessment and diagnosis in Asperger Syndrome;
  • offers practical strategies for effective and realistic classroom intervention, including access to the National Curriculum;

This new edition is also updated with reference to Every Child Matters, the Disability Equality Duty and Access Inclusion Planning.
