Overview

Tackling the challenges of teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) Christy L. Magnusen argues that teachers who can blend the "science" of education methodology with the "art" of teaching are best able to reach these children. She takes a fresh look at established and more recent teaching techniques such as structuring spaces, emphasizing language and planning for transition, and then explores the art of implementation: why, when and how to apply these methods. Based on twenty-five years of working with ASD children, this book provides guidance on engaging students and offers workable solutions to everyday teaching problems.
