This positive, research-based text dispels the stereotypes surrounding autism by providing accurate information on how much children with this complex disorder can learn. Extensively referenced and comprehensive, this resource discusses the behavioral characteristics of autism, available intervention methods, and key topics such as spontaneous language, overselectivity, social communication, and self-management. Detailed chapters also examine the goals of intervention, suggest concrete ways to support families, and offer a wealth of strategies that focus on long-term gains and short-term problem solving; contribute to developing a meaningful, functional curriculum; promote the independence of the child with autism; and include families as valued participants in planning and implementation. Engagingly illustrated and highly readable, Teaching Children with Autism will assist parents and professionals in education, social work, speech-language pathology, psychology, and related fields, preparing them to support children with autism as active participants in their schools and communities.About the Author:
