Even veteran teachers of students with autism sometmes need help to determine why their instructional methods are not getting the desired results.

In Solve Common Teaching Challenges in Children with Autism, behavior and education experts describe 8 potential problem areas, and offer teaching strategies to promote successful learning:

... Motivation (appropriate reinforcement)

... Manding (requesting & responding skills)

... Learning-to-Learn (prerequisite skills)

... Prompting (physical guidance, gesturing, verbal instruction)

... Language Environment (comprehension aid or distraction?)

... Learning Opportunities (quality over quantity)

... Individualizing Instruction (meet student's needs)

... Skills & Goals (meaningful & purposeful)

Each chapter offers an illustrative case study, a critical examination of why the problem arises, and practical instructional solutions. Additional material within chapters--a table, glossary, checklist, Q & A, chart, or form--helps readers to further assess the issue. Educators, therapists, and parents familiar with ABA methods will feel empowered by this handy guide and reinvigorated to solve their teaching challenges.
