Autism : Teaching Makes a Difference - by Brenda Scheuermann & Jo Webber & Russell Lang (Paperback)
about this item
Engaging and reader-friendly, this text presents the vital material required by special educators to plan and implement effective programs that meet the needs of students with autism, specifically those who also have intellectual disabilities (ID). You'll find detailed information about evidence-based practices in the field of autism, beginning with an overview that discusses etiology, characteristics, diagnosis, and program considerations, followed by in-depth coverage of evidence-based teaching practices in a step-by-step format. The authors' optimistic viewpoint is grounded in the premise that applied behavior analytical interventions, if well planned and accurately implemented, will increase the potential for each student's independent functioning in integrated settings.
