Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) presents itself in many different ways, and teachers must be able to identify individual and shared characteristics to provide proper support. This can often present problems for teachers who lack experience of the entire spectrum, which ranges from supporting those with severe learning difficulties to working with highly able young people.

Using real-life examples from their decades of experience, Francine Brower and Keith MacKenzie Cox explain how to identify diverse characteristics of autism, explore key challenges that individuals and schools face and offer practical, effective strategies to support pupils with ASD.

Covering a range of autism characteristics, including sensory differences, communication, behaviour and socialisation, this is the ideal book for mainstream and special school teachers looking to improve their special educational needs provision, and develop the best possible learning outcomes for all pupils with ASD.
