How to Support and Teach Children on the Autism Spectrum
Suitable for: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3
Most schools will have at least one child on the autism spectrum, and teaching children with this very different thinking style can be challenging. Those who work with them often find their behaviour puzzling and feel it's hard to know how best to meet their learning needs. In this timely and reassuring book, Dave Sherratt offers a valuable insight into the particular difficulties of children with autism, Asperger syndrome and other conditions sometimes associated with autism. He explains the fundamental principles that underlie successful teaching for children on the autism spectrum, and suggests a wealth of strategies and activities for developing skills in 3 key areas: A shared understanding of the world and engagement with others: The desire to communicate - and the skills to do it. Play and creativity. This highly accessible guide provide a welcome source of ideas and support. Contains 64 A4 pages.
