Guns A' Blazing
How Parents of Children on the Autism Spectrum and Schools Can Work Together - Without a Shot Being Fired
Many parents enter meetings with teachers, administrators or school officials with "guns a' blazing," ready for a fight before there is even a need for one. However, as Jeffrey Cohen explains, the relationship between schools and parents of children with autism spectrum disorders doesn't have to be confrontational. The book offers practical advice on how to work closely with schools to build a team to help and support the child in dealing with the challenges of schooling. Throughout the book, teachers, administrators, professionals and many parents contribute ideas and offer advice on topics ranging from home schooling to transition plans to college.
