(2015) What Every Teacher Needs to Know by Kathy Hoopmann; forward by Tony Attwood
Perfect for time-poor teachers, Kathy Hoopmann’s essential handbook is an easy-to-navigate resource that promotes a positive learning environment in which students with ASD can thrive.
Full of effective and innovative strategies, the book covers areas such as:
- forming friendships
- literal thinking and speaking
- the overwhelming influence of sensory sensitivities
Activities to help explain the child’s behavior to other students are included and a “Home link” section adds vital information about how to work with parents and other caregivers to create safe, loving and fun environments for the child at home and at school.
“If every primary school teacher read this book, the lives of all young children who have Asperger Syndrome would be significantly improved.” – from the foreword by Tony Attwood
