Autism: Teaching Does Make a Difference

This practical, accessible text was written for practitioners who work with children and youth with autism. It presents the vital material required by special educators to plan and implement effective programs to meet the needs of students with autism. It begins with an overview of autism, including etiology, characteristics, diagnosis, and definition, followed by in-depth coverage of teaching methodologies. Throughout the book, the authors present state-of-the-art information in a step-by-step user friendly format. The book’s optimistic viewpoint is grounded in the premise that well-planned and accurately implemented applied behavior analytical interventions will increase the potential for more independent and mainstream functioning.

Provides information critical to education planning, for teachers, parents, and other caregivers who work with children and teen-agers with low-functioning autism and related disorders. The authors (Southwest Texas State U.) believe that careful, systematic use of the strategies and methods of applied behavior analysis will improve the prognosis for most students with autism. The reference covers areas including basic behavioral principles, reducing challenging behavior, curriculum development, remediating deficits in speech, language, socialization, and life skills, and understanding intervention controversies.
