Teaching Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
1 Jan 2006
What do you do when a three-year-old with autism falls on the floor kicking and screaming? How do you communicate with a child who looks away and flaps his hands? Who can you turn to for help if you suspect a child in your care is autistic? "Teaching Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder" is a straightforward, easy-to-understand guide to working with autistic children. It explains the major characteristics associated with autism and helps teachers and parents understand how these children relate to the world. Each chapter offers specific strategies for adults to use, including helping children learn life skills, managing behaviour, two-way communication, play, interaction, and working with families. This volume will help teachers and parents connect with all children in meaningful ways, allowing those with autism to learn and grow.
