"As a school psychologist I found this book very helpful in giving teachers ideas that they can implement easily in their classrooms. For parents, it offers suggestions for how to manage behaviors and how to help your child be integrated into the regular education classroom."

"I recently picked up a copy of Autism in the School Aged Child and was so drawn in by the reader-friendly nature of this book that I finished it in just one day. It offers a positive and SYSTEMATIC approach to teaching children with autism the traditional classroom behaviors that they so often lack. It literally shows you how to take an aide-dependent child and teach them the skills to be independent and successful in the traditional classroom. My favorite part of the book is actually it's extensive use of examples. Rather than simply telling you to "keep instructions short and clear" the authors actually rephrase familiar classroom directives into "autism friendly" language. With both phrases right in front of you the lesson for parents and teachers comes out loud and clear. And then today I put this book to the ultimate test. I took it into a meeting at school and used the ideas, tips, and systems it teaches to help a young man with autism stay in his regular ed. 1st grade class with a support team re-energized to help him experience success and independence. In my book, you can't get better than that! Two thumbs up to Carol and Beth for a terrific and very usable new autism resource."
