Reviews

 

The title says it all in this must-have reference book for teachers of students with ASD!  Thomas Daly offers great hands-on materials to help educators explain the nebulous world of oral and written communication to our students with social thinking challenges.

Mr. Daly has written a book that will certainly aid teachers as they work with students with High Functioning Autism.  He provides an insightful look at the educational and social situations that challenge our students with HFA.  But he doesn't stop there.  He has developed helpful scripts, organizers, templates and activities targeting the areas of group communication, prior knowledge, comprehension and written language.  His strategies incorporate best practices in education.  The activities provide predictability by telling students what is expected in a particular educational situation.  Also included is a list of related goals and objectives to help teachers in individual education planning.  Materials in the book can be adapted for students from upper elementary school through high school.
