How do teachers and parents of children with autism address a child’s social skills? And what do they do about problem behaviors? This book provides possible explanations for these behaviours, and a wealth of practical help for both teachers and parents to address them. Teachers learn how to create environmental supports and how to incorporate specific teaching strategies. Students with autism learn the new skills they might need, and ways of making their behavior more acceptable. This book is full of practical tips on how to tackle different kinds of challenging behaviors both in the classroom and outside it.



Acknowledgments. Foreword. 1. Traditional approaches. 2. Adopting a team approach to writing a behaviour support plan. 3. What causes misbehavior in children with autism? Forming a hypothesis. 4. Antecedent strategies. 5. Rewards and motivators. 6. Consequential strategies. 7. Evaluation for effectiveness. References. Index.



I found this to be a useful book. The approach it recommends is based on well-tired principles of positive behaviour management the author’s style and obvious personal experience remind the reader to look beyond the challenging or nuisance element of behaviour to consider what that behaviour is trying to communicate, something that is equally applicable for all children – not just those with autistic spectrum disorders. I found this to be a very practical book and believe it would be a useful resource for anyone working with pupils whose behaviour is challenging, but especially those with autistic spectrum disorders.
