Guide: Reaching and Teaching Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Best Practices Guide
The purpose of the guide is to provide information and best practice guidance for teachers, paraprofessionals, related service providers, parents and administrators in educating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The DoDEA, like other school systems, are concerned with providing appropriate services to children with autism, and with making current information about best practices available to educators and parents. This publication was written in response to these concerns and provides a collection of the many promising practices that have emerged in recent years. The ideas and strategies in the Guide have proven effective in helping students with ASD and other developmental disabilities acquire knowledge, skills and the ability to work and learn with their peers.
