An Educator’s Guide to Autism

An Educator’s Guide to Autism, the second book in our Life Journey Through Autism series of resource guides, provides parents, teachers, and education professionals with a plan for teaching an autistic child in the general elementary classroom setting.

The heart of An Educator’s Guide to Autism is a six-step approach for a teacher preparing to educate autistic children in their classroom. The six-step plan includes information about:

  • Preparing to have a student with autism in the classroom
  • Communicating and collaborating with the parents and/or guardians of an autistic student
  • Supporting the inclusive classroom environment
  • Collaborating with a student’s IEP team

The discussion of each step includes practical tips on what a teacher should look for and how to navigate the challenges that may arise. Following these steps offers the teacher the potential to create the most favorable educational environment for all learners in the classroom, including the student with autism.

This guide is also available as an eBook! You can download it for KindleNook, and Kobo.
