For students with autism spectrum disorders, problems with flexibility and goal-directed behavior can be a major obstacle to success in school and in life. But flexibility and goal-setting can be taught just like any other skill--and this how-to manual equips professionals with simple, real-world ways to help students with ASD develop this critical aspect of executive function. A classroom-based intervention approach for high-functioning students ages 8-11, this innovative guide gives special educators and other service providers ready-to-use lessons that promote cognitive and behavioral flexibility in everyday situations, from compromising with peers to handling schedule changes. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of researchers and front-line professionals, the 27 lessons in "Unstuck and On Target!": (1) are tested and proven; (2) reflect the learning style of students with ASD; (3) target specific skills every student needs; (4) free up teacher time; (5) fit easily into any curriculum; (6) make learning fun; and (7) ensure generalization.
