You’re Going to Love This Kid: Teaching Students with Autism in the Inclusive Classroom

The lending library is temporarily closed.

This book combines relevant research with lessons learned from the author’s teaching experience to give readers specific, creative ideas for: understanding the attitudes, values and actions that support inclusive schooling; connecting, communicating, and collaborating effectively with families; enhancing literacy by adapting reading materials, using visuals, and tapping in to student interests; planning challenging, multidimensional lessons that encourage all students to participate and help students reach their individual goals; support student behavior in sensitive, positive ways; fostering friendships and social relationships between students with and without autism; and adapting the physical environment for students with autism who may have heightened sensitivity to factors like temperature, sounds, and smells.
