Overview

This is a clear and concise guide to effective classroom practice for teachers and support assistants working with children with Asperger Syndrome in mainstream schools and other non-specialist settings. The authors outline the underlying impairments and their educational implications, consider the issues of assessment and diagnosis and offer practical strategies for effective and realistic classroom intervention, including access to the National Curriculum. In addition, they consider the behavioral challenges the child with Asperger Syndrome may pose. The book seeks to inform professionals meeting a child with Asperger Syndrome for the first time and to equip them with effective educational and behavioral intervention strategies. Professionals in special schools, INSET providers, educational psychologists, parents and caregivers will also find this book helpful.

Outlines underlying impairments of social ineptitude, odd or pedantic speech, limited communication, poor motor skills.
