Meeting a growing need for school-based practitioners, this book provides vital tools for improving the academic, behavioral, and social outcomes of students with high-functioning autism or Asperger syndrome (HFA/AS). Research-based best practices are presented for conducting meaningful assessments; collaborating with teachers, students, and parents to prevent school difficulties and problem solve when they occur; and developing effective individualized education programs (IEPs). In a large-size format with lay-flat binding to facilitate photocopying, the book features a wealth of practical prevention and intervention strategies, illustrated with concrete examples. Over a dozen reproducibles include interview forms and observation sheets.
