Practical Ideas That Really Work for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders–Second Edition was revised and written to assist educators and parents in providing intervention strategies to promote these students’ ability to learn and to function in social situations.  The book builds on the feedback that we have collectively received about our prior books in this series.  We have learned that teachers find it very useful to have a repertoire of appropriate intervention strategies to use.

Practical Ideas That Really Work for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders–Second Edition is intended for use with students with autism spectrum disorders in preschool through Grade 12.  It includes two primary components: 1) Evaluation Form with a Rating Scale and Ideas Matrix and 2) Practical Ideas Manual.
The Rating Scale portion of the evaluation form is a criterion-referenced measure for evaluating behaviors that impact student learning and social interactions.  The Manual includes an “Ideas Matrix” of 40 ideas, many with reproducible matters, and all grounded in research and the collective experience of the many educators who advised us and shared information with us.  Each idea is provided with specific supporting references.
