Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are complex. The numbers of children with these conditions seem to be increasing and staff in early years settings are increasingly being faced with the difficulties of helping these children learn and develop. This book will provide you with a practical understanding to help you achieve this.

Although aimed at all those working in early years settings, this will also be helpful to parents of young children with an ASD. Sections include:

  • Diagnoses
  • Understanding Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Educational goals and specialist approaches
  • Working with parents
  • Building communication
  • Developing social understanding and enabling play
  • Managing behaviour

The main areas of concern are addressed in a clear and readable style, always with a practical focus, and short examples, on what needs to be 'done and the principles to guide your practice.
