Teaching Young Children with Autism

Pre-school can be an overwhelming experience for a child with autism. Autism affects how a child communicates, behaves, and relates to others. Practitioners need to know what they can do to help children with autism reach their full potential. This straightforward easy to use guide explains the major characteristics associated with autism and helps teachers understand the ways children with autism relate to the world. Each chapter offers specific strategies for teachers to use, including setting up a proactive pre-school environment, helping children learn life skills, managing behaviour, helping children with autism communicate and play, helping them to get along with others, and working with families. Teaching Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder help teachers connect with all children in meaningful ways, and helps children with autism learn and grow.
