Critical Issues in Educating Autistic Children and Youth.
Wilcox, Barbara, Ed.; Thompson, Anneke, Ed.
This book evolved from a conference convened to address critical issues in the education of children and youth with autism (Reston, Virginia, February 1980). Fourteen papers deal with critical issues in the education of autistic children and youth from perspectives of administrators, teachers, parents, researchers, and program developers. B. Wilcox provides an overview and E. Sontag et al. present an introduction to the volume. The following titles and authors are represented: "Organization of Education Services for Autistic Children and Youth" (J. Olley); "A Developmental-Behavior Model for the Prescriptive Evaluation of Autistic and Severely Socially Impaired Children" (C. Lord and P. O'Neill); "An Educational Perspective of Autism: Implications for Curriculum Development and Personnel Development" (A. Donnellan); "Programming the Delivery of Instruction for Autistic Children" (G. Dunlap and R. Koegal); "Generalization of Treatment Effects Following Educational Intervention with Autistic Children and Youth" (E. Carr); "Reducing Behavior Problems in the Classroom" (G. LaVigna); "Teaching Functional Language" (A. Schuler); "Social Behavior Programming with Severely Handicapped and Autistic Children" (P. Strain); "The Teacher's Perspective: The Struggle to Provide Quality Education to Autistic Children" (K. Norsworthy and P. Sievers); "Behavioral Teaching with Young Autistic Children" (O. Lovaas); "The Evolving Parent-Professional Relationship" (J. Kyne); "Secondary Education for Severely Handicapped Students: Guidelines for Quality Services" (G. Bellamy and B. Wilcox); "Issues in the Provision of Community Services" (D. MacCoy); "Future Directions in Educational Planning: The Problem Is the Problem, and It's Real" (F. Warren). R.
