Teaching Self-Regulation, Executive Function, Attribution, and Sensory Awareness to Students With Asperger Syndrome, High-Functioning Autism, and Related Disorders

The ECLIPSE Model targets the skills needed to improve social competence, such as executive functioning, theory of mind, causal attribution, processing speed and working memory. Without effective use of these skills on a regular basis, development of other areas of functioning - academic, adaptive, social and vocational skills - will be inhibited. The ECLIPSE Model directly addresses four challenge areas that are not typically covered by other curricula: self-regulation, executive function, attribution retraining and sensory awareness. These four areas impact almost all activities across environments, and individuals without adequate skills in these areas are unlikely to reach their full potential. The curriculum provides step-by-step lessons for teaching these vital skills in a way that will motivate young people.

Moyer was a 2002 Hartman Child and Family Scholar, and in 2006 she was a parent participant in the Inaugural Research Convocation for the Organization for Autism Research in Washington, DC. Her professional interests include the influence of attribution and self-regulation on social competence, trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder and the connection to ASD, transition to adulthood, and vocational rehabilitation.

Customer Review: Lee - The Eclipse Model provides proven strategies to facilitate engagement, self management and sensory awareness to those with ASD. The book is easy to read, providing a format that engages the reader while providing a structured approach to lesson development. Sherry uses her vast personal knowledge combined with a great deal of research to provide us with practical evidence-based interventions. Terrific book, easy to read, equally easy to implement.

Customer Review: Judy Endow - So glad to have this important autism book on my book shelf, though it doesn't stay put for long as it always seems to be in use. The ECLIPSE Model is practical in so many ways! It delivers detailed lesson plans on addressing self-regulation, executive funtion, attribution and sensory awareness to students with high-functioning autism and related disorders to groups of students in a variety of fun and engaging ways. Each section of the book starts off with definition and a variety of succint real life examples followed by a few paragraphs of the impact on other skill development and examples of measurable goals for learning - goals that can be used for the IEP or treatment plan. There are also various ways described throughout to collect and use data so as to ascertain the impact of the curriculum on the participants. Data collection tools can be copied as can any of the pages needed for use in group projects. You cannot get any more practical than that! As a person with autism myself, I so appreciate in Moyer's work the fact that she doesn't teach to the deficits. So often it seems that others look at us, see our deficits and set about to fix that by teaching what is missing. When using The ECLIPSE Model I get the feeling that Moyer is joining with my humanity, providing the tools I need to overcome my deficits, allowing me to be who and what I want to be in this world. As such, the true gift of The ECLIPSE Model is its offer of personal empowerment rather than a remedy to autistic deficits.
