At the preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary levels, the needs of learners with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome (HFA/AS) are highly variable. Assessment of an individual child's needs is critically important for planning effective treatment. Treatment, in turn, must address the comprehensive needs of each learner. This is a formidable task that requires tremendous planning and the expertise of many professionals working jointly with parents. Practical Solutions for Educating Young Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome is designed to help parents and professionals address the unique challenges of these early learners by putting into place various kinds of support and assistance to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Further, to highlight practical applications, in each chapter of the book vignettes of "real" children illustrate the ideas and strategies introduced, culminating in two in-depth case studies that synthesize how the strategies described in the book can be used in combination to maximize success.
