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. The easy-to-use material is a companion to Strategies at Hand: Quick Positive Behavior Support Strategies.
