Summary

This book provides strategies and concepts to aid educators in creating an inclusive environment for students with autism in both primary and secondary schools, covering such topics as collaboration, lesson plans, supports, and community. The chapters are designed to highlight how any student with autism spectrum disorders can be supported to participate in academic instruction, school routines, and social activities. The book uses examples of how to plan lessons, engineer a safe and comfortable classroom, provide communication opportunities, and understand and support challenging behaviors. The author uses her own classroom and school observations and her experiences as an elementary and high school educator to explore methods of adapting the school environment to be comfortable and appropriate for students with autism and autism spectrum disorders
