Parental Suggestions for Facilitating Acceptance and Understanding of Autism
Wastney, Bernie; Kooro-Baker, Gayle Te; McPeak, Carolyn
Kairaranga, v8 n2 p15-20 2007
This article contains the transcript of a session one mother ran in her child's class. The aim of the session was to give class members a better understanding of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in general and of her son in particular. The effectiveness of her approach is evident in the follow-up stories children wrote and in the experiences this mother recounts. Included as an appendix is a questionnaire developed by three Maori parents of children with ASD. These questions were used to assist them in selecting schools to meet their children's special and cultural needs.
