for Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and Other Developmental Delays (2013) by Jo Adkins and Sue Larkey; Foreword by Tony Attwood
It is a common misconception that children on the autism spectrum find mathematics easy. In fact the opposite is true for some, and exposure to basic mathematics in the early years can be crucial in establishing the foundations for understanding later in life.
This book provides practical strategies and tools for teaching key mathematics concepts to children with an autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays. The authors emphasize the importance of incorporating a child’s special interest into learning in order to help them engage fully with new concepts.
