This long-awaited book is written for parents and professionals who want to be more effective in their work with students who have neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism. Based on their experiences teaching and treating these students in school and clinic settings, the authors have created a resource that promotes an understanding of how to help students with neurodevelopmental disorders advance on a typical path of development. They provide clear and practical information and strategies for addressing the root issues that create communication, social, behaviour, and learning obstacles for these students. This valuable collection contains tested approaches, examples, and worksheets for helping students with neurodevelopmental disorders reach their fullest potential in school and life.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify the core features of neurodevelopmental disorders that create communication, learning, and relationship challenges for your students
  • Shift from a mindset of working around deficits (compensation) to correcting the root issues that create obstacles for your students (remediation)
  • Modify your communication to promote your students’ communication and thinking abilities
  • Identify the unique strengths and obstacles of each student in order to determine appropriate placement and programming
  • Structure the school day for optimal success
  • Decipher student behaviour and address the root issues creating problems
  • Identify the missing developmental milestones that are impacting your students’ communication, cognition, socialization, and behaviour
  • Work effectively with parents to promote student development consistently in all environments
  • Prompt students in ways that support critical thinking and communication skills, not prompt dependence
  • Focus on what really matters for students across the school day
  • Reach your highest purpose as an influential guide in the lives of students with neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Achieve meaningful outcomes for students that allow them to reach their greatest potential
