Children and youth with Asperger Syndrome, high-functioning autism (HFA), and pervasive developmental disorders - not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and related exceptionalities have great potential, but all too often their abilities are not realized. This book provides ideas and suggestions that teachers can use to help a student with AS/HFA.

This is a great guide which will be useful in instructing others in working with children with AS. It has simple strategies and clearly outlined ideas for avoiding meltdowns and improving interaction with others as well as tips on how to set up a visual routine. Can be applied to most school age levels. I will probably make copies of some of the sections.
Easy to read, easy to find information, this is an excellent book to share with teachers or with any adults who work with children diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Explains sensory issues as well as the Asperger's behaviors that typically baffle everyone around them. Brenda Myles Smith really "gets" Asperger's Syndrome!

Recommends it for: any parent of an Aspie
Recommended to Brynna by: my daughter's school
I was given a few photocopies out of this book by the school when my child was diagnosed. Much of it is stuff we had already figured out... but it is VERY helpfull to have on hand when guiding others in dealing with my child.
Loved it! The book Described numerous students in our school and gave practical ideas on how to make school fun and educational for those students with special needs! A must read for any educator regardless of grade level or subjects being taught.
