With more than half a million children in the United States diagnosed with some degree of autism, public schools are struggling to keep up with the growing needs. The majority of these students are educated in local public schools, and those schools must now step up to the challenge. Schools have both a moral and legal responsibility to educate these children about both academics and social skills. Autism encompasses a very wide spectrum of behaviors and learning problems. The variety of traits they present makes it particularly challenging for teachers and schools to guide these children to adulthood. Autism--What Schools are Missing: Voices for a New Path examines the advantages and disadvantages of our public education system for those on the spectrum. This book takes a close look at the strategies and supports that have proven to be successful compared to those that actually increase the educator's burden and limit the student's success. Educators can use the practical strategies detailed in this book to build an enabling environment for this growing population.
