Autism from the Inside Out: A Handbook for Parents, Early Childhood, Primary, Post-Primary and Special School Settings
Ring, Emer; Daly, Patricia; Wall, Eugene
Peter Lang Publishing Group
"Autism from the Inside Out" is the first book to focus on providing Irish parents, early childhood, primary, post-primary and special school teachers with effective strategies for supporting children with autism spectrum difference at home and in educational settings. Presenting contributions from a range of national and international experts in education and psychology, the volume emerged from an evaluation of education provision commissioned by Ireland's National Council for Special Education, which clearly identified a need for additional guidance, advice and support for parents and teachers. The book rejects "disorder" in favour of "difference", emphasizing the importance of a child-centred approach and the dangers of over-generalization. It includes chapters on effective teaching strategies to promote learning; responding to children's strengths and needs through individualized planning; assessment practices; the role of the Special Needs Assistant; managing transitions; the environment as the third teacher; promoting children's wellbeing; and effective leadership for inclusion.
