Summary:   Sometimes, all a student needs to succeed is a friend. Every day, thousands of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) struggle to stay afloat at school-sometimes bullied, often ostracized. Mastering academics can be hard enough without the added challenge of navigating social situations that neurotypical kids take for granted. If students with ASD had a peer to model and reinforce socially appropriate behavior and coach them through schoolwork, it could help them feel at home in the student population. This inspirational new book describes how to set up just such a peer-mentoring organization in your school or community. With a clear understanding of the needs of students with ASD and the kids who will be their guides, Kukoff provides: Steps for organizing and implementing your own Autism Ambassadors program Clear-cut guidelines on the responsibilities of student "ambassadors," plus peer-support strategies to improve the ambassador experience More than a hundred specific interventions any student can employ with students with ASD A path for students with ASD to become Autism Ambassadors themselves Based on the methodology of Applied Behavior Analysis-the gold standard in autism intervention-but created and led by students, the Autism Ambassadors curriculum will promote leadership and improve the school experience for all student

A-Z of inclusion in early childhood

by Mary Dickins

 callnumbericon LC 1200 D53 2014       ED-61711

Language: English  

Publisher: Maidenhead, Berkshire, England : Open University Press, 2014

Summary:     "The concept of inclusion is complex and messy and although many definitions abound it has never been fully clarified in legislation and guidance. The purpose of this book is to consider how professionals working with young children and their families can better understand the concept of inclusion and successfully establish, examine and evaluate the building blocks and framework that should underpin inclusive practice. This book represents a genuine attempt to identify the challenges and barriers to inclusion for all children; to understand them and in some measure, to suggest how they might be overcome"--Publisher.
