Classroom Clip Charts

 

Classroom clip charts can be a great group behavior management system. In this system, the children color in the space for that day on a calendar that gets sent home to the parents each day to see. If the child is on red, there is a parent contact form that goes home to let them know why the child was on red and the parent will send the form back to the teacher.

Books for Parents of Children Diagnosed with Autism

books

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism

“Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, it is a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within.” Perspective of a child with autism.

I See Things Differently: A First Look at Autism (A First Look At…Series)

“This book will help children understand what autism is and how it affects someone who has it. A wonderful catalyst for discussion that will help children to better understand and support autistic classmates or siblings. The story line is simple and easily accessible to younger children, who will learn that exploring the personal feelings around social issues is a first step in dealing with them.” Perfect for siblings and friends of children with autism.

1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism or Asperger’s, Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition

“More than 600 fresh ideas join tried and true tactics from the original edition, offering modifications for older kids, honing in on Asperger’s challenges, and enhancing already-effective ways to help your child or student achieve success at home, in school, and in the community. This one-stop-shop of solutions, explanations, and strategies guides the reader to quickly find ideas that speak to the variety of developmental levels, learning styles, and abilities inherent in children with autism and Asperger’s.” Great, easy ideas to work on at home.

The Social Skills Picture Book Teaching play, emotion, and communication to children with autism

“This book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations. The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of children with ASD to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate the “”right way”” and “”wrong way”” to approach each situation and the positive/negative consequences of each. A facilitator (parent, teacher, etc.) is initially needed to explain each situation, and ask questions such as “”What is happening in this picture?”” Children role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.” Perfect for teaching social skills.

Understanding Applied Behavior Analysis, Second Edition: An Introduction to ABA for Parents, Teachers, and other Professionals

“Albert J. Kearney explains the kinds of learning and reinforcement processes that form the basis of ABA programs. Having covered these essential principles, he describes how the science of behavior analysis can be effectively applied to real life behavior problems. He looks at how behavior is assessed and various intervention techniques that are often employed with children who have autism and other special needs. Having laid these essential foundations, Kearney touches on more advanced topics: the applications of ABA in behavioral education, such as precision teaching and programmed instruction.” Perfect for understanding ABA therapy.

Sign Language: My First 100 Words

“Featuring cool computer-generated illustrations and a simple kid-friendly design, this reference book for the youngest readers makes learning sign language fun and easy! Learn 100 basic signs for everyday use in helpful categories, such as Food, Colors, Animals, In the Classroom, and more! Also included are instructions on how to fingerspell the entire alphabet and numbers.”  Perfect for children who are non-vocal.

Wrightslaw: All About IEPs

“Whether you are the parent of a child with special education needs, a seasoned educator, or a professional advocate, you have questions about Individualized Education Programs, (IEPs). In this comprehensive, easy to read book, you will find clear, concise answers to frequently asked questions about IEPs. Learn what the law says about IEP Teams and IEP Meetings, Parental Rights and Consent, Steps in Developing the IEP, Placement, Transition, Assistive Technology and Strategies to Resolve Disagreements.” Perfect for understanding the IEP process.

Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism

“Autism therapy typically focuses on ridding individuals of “autistic” symptoms such as difficulties interacting socially, problems in communicating, sensory challenges, and repetitive behavior patterns. Now Dr. Barry M. Prizant offers a new and compelling paradigm: the most successful approaches to autism don’t aim at fixing a person by eliminating symptoms, but rather seeking to understand the individual’s experience and what underlies the behavior.” Perfect for seeing a new perspective.

Task Cards: What Does Not Belong?

Task cards are important learning tools for children with autism and other developmental disabilities to help them to visualize concepts. These task cards focus on the concept of things that do not belong, which is an important, yet often difficult concept for our learners to understand.
