Overview

This key source for educators and parents clearly explains how the learning process is experienced by Asperger Syndrome (AS) students and how they can be supported in learning settings.

Paula Jacobsen provides a compelling inside view of how AS pupils perceive and understand what goes on in the classroom, and how they, in turn, are perceived by fellow pupils and teachers. Adopting a pragmatic approach to improving communications, she offers practical intervention strategies to increase mutual understanding and create a rewarding and supportive learning environment. Also included are numerous examples of behavior commonly observed in AS children, along with illuminating accounts of the experiences of specific children - both of which help us to understand the learning process and avoid misunderstandings.

This accessible book is a major resource for educators and parents of AS children, and provides invaluable guidance on how AS pupils learn and communicate.
