Cutting through the jargon and recognising the huge variety of ways in which children’s perceptions, feelings and behaviours may be affected by autism, the text is packed with practical advice to help you create a classroom environment which will meet the needs of the individual child.

    Topics discussed include:

    • classroom layout, timetables and rules
    • effective communication
    • supporting learning and setting targets
    • breaks, unstructured times and school trips
