Understanding Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Educators Partnering with Families. As prevalence rates and awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) increase, there is a need for all educators to have a basic understanding of the disorder and how to teach affected children. Understanding Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Educators Partnering with Families introduces, in an accessible manner, the significant body of research and theory in the field of autism within the larger context of understanding the unique socio-cultural dimensions of individuals with ASD and their families. Engaging and user-friendly, Michelle Haney's text provides future educators insight into the complexity and diversity of children with ASD, the wide range of interventions and processes for making decisions about choosing interventions (teaming with parents to provide optimal educational opportunities), and the personal/professional growth that is likely to take place during such a journey.
