Teaching Community Skills and Behaviors to Students with Autism or Related Problems of Communication and Social Interaction.
Andis, Kim; And Others
This sourcebook was developed to assist in systematically integrating persons with autism into the community. It offers practical methods and considerations in assessing student and family interests and needs, assessing community resources to meet the needs, and assessing students in community sites. Based on the assessments, individual student plans with goals and objectives are developed. Based on the goals and objectives, an individualized task analysis is then developed. The objectives are activity-based and reflect the domains of work, leisure, and personal management as well as the specific areas of communication and social interaction. The sourcebook contains such sample forms as an assessment of social skills/communication, survey of community resources, site-specific community survey, site specific assessment, individual assessment, task analysis, and behavior plan.
