Product Overview

"A very well organized guide for teaching students with ASD. In just six pages there is a wealth of material that is easy to understand and geared to the classroom. A busy teacher and paraprofessionals would find this a tool that they could immediately use. Despite the amount of information contained in the steps, the layout makes it user-friendly. I like the way the material is organized into specific supports so you can go right to the section needed. The document also contains references to other strategies and resources such as the TEACCH approach and Social Stories. Excellent!"

-Aran Malone Felix Program Manager, Alaska Department of Education & Early Development
