Young people with Autism Spectrum Condition face difficulties with social skills, communication and behaviour – all things that if left can make it very difficult for children to maximise their potential in terms of their education.
However, with the right sort of teaching and understanding, children with Autism Spectrum Condition can be polite, well mannered and sociable, while becoming calm, and happy.
As a result of such changes they begin to feel secure and learn how to be kind and charitable, while putting their own leisure time to good use, while developing their skills and knowledge.
Perhaps most excitingly they can become creative in a unique way.
Understanding the learning style of children with ASC is necessary if such progress is to be made – which is where “Single Focused Attention: Teaching children with an Autism Spectrum Condition” comes in. This volume, which is available as a copiable book and on CD (which allows it to be placed on the school’s learning platform) takes the interested teacher from a discussion of the condition through to ways in which the pupil or student can be helped at school.
The book includes issues relating to individual work, social skills, life in the school playground, timetabling, anxiety, homework, the physical and sensory environment, curriculum issues, and much much more.
The volume concludes with a test to establish whether the children do have “Theory of Mind” plus a large series of worksheets that can be used with ASC children.
