Strategies at Hand: Quick and Handy Strategies for Working With Students on the Autism Spectrum

Strategies at Hand reintroduces the much-valued concept of convenience to teachers, paraprofessionals and related professionals who work with students with autism spectrum disorders. It features easy-to-implement strategies that can be used in all types of educational settings and situations. This tool is broken down into five color-coded sections that are easy to locate and use: Learning Environments (classroom, field trips, etc.), Areas of Student Need (communication, behavior, etc.), Transitions (substitute teachers, school assemblies, etc.), Alphabetical Explanations of Terms (functional behavioral assessment, picture communication systems, etc.), and Resources and References.

Customer Review: Bonnie Sayers - This unique book is color coded with specific tips and ideas for students on the autism spectrum in regard to transitions, field trips, general education and special education, assemblies, how to prepare ahead of time for fire drills, hints for riding the bus, how to communicate with home on a daily basis and transitions for when there is a substitute teacher or another aide. There are visuals to help guide the professional. This is a handy reference tool for the novice as well as other professionals that work with the autism population. At this great price it is perfect to get for teachers and paraeducators for new school year gifts while the parents can read over the summer break to get it all figured out, especially the transitions if moving onto middle school from elementary school. I learned a lot for my son who will be riding the school bus for the first time come the fall and guidelines for assemblies and fire drills
