Teaching Adolescents with Autism Practical Strategies for the Inclusive Classroom by Walter G. Kaweski

Teaching Adolescents with Autism Practical Strategies for the Inclusive Classroom


Teaching Adolescents with Autism Practical Strategies for the Inclusive Classroom by Walter G. Kaweski

Award-winning educator Walter Kaweski offers secondary teachers practical strategies and heartfelt insights based on his extensive experience as an autism specialist, inclusion coordinator, and father of a son with Asperger syndrome. Students with special needs often require extra support as they adjust to middle and high school and the changes that accompany adolescence. Without support, this time can be overwhelming. Teaching Adolescents with Autism offers hundreds of valuable ideas to help teachers: * Understand the causes and manifestations of autism * Solve adolescent behavior challenges * Support students with diverse needs * Implement academic and behavioral interventions * Help students adjust to social situations * Understand special education policy Each chapter offers numerous personal stories that illustrate and reinforce strategies in a tangible way. Important concepts are augmented with bulleted lists, tables, figures, photographs, and cartoons drawn by a student with autism. This unique book takes the mystery out of teaching adolescents with autism and inspires teachers to appreciate the individuality of each student.
