Description:

How can you make the school year successful for your students with Asperger Syndrome? "This comprehensive, thoughtful, and clearly written book provides helpful strategies for educational professionals to teach children and youth with Asperger Syndrome (AS). Every teacher interested in AS will want to read this book." -Susan Moreno, President MAAP Services for Autism & Asperger Syndrome Asperger Syndrome (AS) is a disorder in the autism spectrum, and students with AS suffer from similar, though milder, symptoms as students with autism. Classroom teachers who are charged with teaching students with AS generally have not been provided the skills and knowledge to do so. Crafting and implementing plans for students is nearly impossible without a clear understanding of the disorder, or clearly defined instructional methods and strategies. Children and Youth With Asperger Syndrome provides important strategies in teaching children and youth diagnosed with AS. This essential resource for teachers and other educators presents research-based, instructional, behavioral, and environmental strategies for teachers, including: Adaptations for success in general education settings Environmental modifications, including visual supports and organizational strategies Technology accommodations Transition planning Emotional, behavioral, and social supports Children and youth with AS are often misunderstood. These individuals have great potential that frequently remains unrealized because the modifications they require to be successful are not made. By using the practical strategies in this guide, however, educators can at last effectively meet the needs of students with AS.
