Overview

Success Strategies for Teaching Kids with Autism – Wendy Ashcroft, PhD, Sue Argiro, Joyce Keohane

The perfect handbook for any teacher looking for proven solutions for helping children with autism succeed

Although an abundance of research exists on working with students with autism, teachers need the practical strategies in Success Strategies for Teaching Kids With Autism to build successful programs and services for kids with autism.

The authors, seasoned classroom teachers and consultants for a large public school autism support program, look at ways teachers can apply best practices for teaching special needs students on smaller budgets, tight schedules, and minimal materials. They offer more than 25 field-tested ideas for teachers to implement, covering topics such as managing difficult behaviors, teaching social skills, addressing language and communication difficulties, creating schedules, and organizing the classroom.

Including teacher-friendly overviews of the educational needs of students with autism and ideal teaching methods, the book also provides reproducible materials that teachers can copy and use immediately in their classrooms, along with photographs and detailed graphics that show their strategies in action.

  • Features proven advice and strategies from experienced special educators
  • Addresses the three main areas of need for students with autism: language, social skills, and behavior management
  • Offers practical solutions to creating an autism-friendly classroom
  • Provides a concise introduction to the educational needs of students with autism
  • Includes guidance for both inclusion and self-contained classrooms

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Communicating with and teaching individuals with autism is a much-in-demand topic on which numerous titles are published every year. Ashcroft (education, Christian Brothers Univ.) and coauthors Sue Argio and Joyce Keohane all have professional experience working with children with autism. They are proponents of the use of applied behavior analysis (ABA) as a basis of instructional programs for these children. In addition to providing an overview of autism spectrum disorder, its general characteristics, and the state of current research on intervention, the book outlines the principles of ABA and provides detailed strategies for the application of those principles in support of the individualized education program created for each child. The book is well organized, with a good balance of research discussion and practical application. Photographs and sample classroom materials are included showing real-world use of the strategies. VERDICT A strong entry in a crowded genre, this book is recommended for practitioners in special needs and inclusive settings as well as for libraries serving teachers and teacher education programs.—Sara Holder, McGill Univ., Montreal
