In this book, the authors combine their expertise as an occupational and a speech therapist along with years of real-life experience with students on the autism spectrum. It is a fabulous resource for teachers and parents alike. Each topic includes teacher concerns, an explanation of the research on ASD and teaching strategies which are very specific and practical.
