Based on their pioneering work at the King Ecgbert School, the authors explore the issues of access and inclusion in employment and education for children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). They describe the challenges they faced in establishing and running an Integrated Resource for children with ASD, within a mainstream secondary school. The 28 pupils at The Resource participate in the regular school curriculum, but also learn a wide range of additional life skills. These include road safety, work-place skills and using public transport as well as expressing feelings, making choices and learning from experience. The innovative Post 16 provision of The Resource arranges work placements for its older pupils with employers such as Sainsbury's and Norwich Union and these projects reveal the encouraging possibilities within employment for young people with ASD. Throughout, the authors make useful practical suggestions for access and inclusion, showing how people with ASD can participate more fully in the world of work and the community. [less]

Art therapy with children on the autistic spectrum: beyond words

EVANS, Kathy and DUBOWSKI, Janek

2001    111 Pages    (Jessica Kingsley Publishers)

ISBN 10: 1853028258

Research has shown that art therapy can be particularly effective for children with autism and related communication disorders. The extensive range of symptoms experienced by autistic people makes them extremely individual in presentation, so any treatment used must be tailored to a range of varying needs. This text presents a new model of practice, which primarily focuses on communication difficulties. The authors describe how negative behaviours and subsequent tension may be alleviated when [...]

Research has shown that art therapy can be particularly effective for children with autism and related communication disorders. The extensive range of symptoms experienced by autistic people makes them extremely individual in presentation, so any treatment used must be tailored to a range of varying needs. This text presents a new model of practice, which primarily focuses on communication difficulties. The authors describe how negative behaviours and subsequent tension may be alleviated when the autistic child is involved in interactive art making with the therapist. The book is divided into three parts: the first part explores art making processes and art work, with an emphasis on how art can be specifically communicative. A history of autism is presented within the therapeutic context. The second part challenges existing methods of practice within art therapy and considers the most appropriate approaches to treating autistic children. The last part discusses research that lead to the formulation of this specific model - methodology and assessment interventions are analyzed, as well as the ongoing development of appropriate assessment instruments. Case studies of art therapy with individual autistic children demonstrate the use of the model and the outcomes. The book emphasizes how art therapy works as an integral part of overall management and treatment approaches to autism. [less]

Many elementary school children have difficulty responding appropriately to verbal directions and instructions. For these children the use of visual aids is essential in gaining their understanding and cooperation. ‘Picture the progress’ provides drawings of students engaging in appropriate behaviour within a variety of school settings and activities. The settings include the classroom, hallway, library, lunchroom and bus – along with PE and music. Appropriate classroom work behaviour, positive social interaction and general rule following are depicted. Using the drawings provided, teachers and others can clearly communicate to students, expectations for desired behaviours. The drawings in themselves do not dictate a particular approach or philosophy in working with children – they simply facilitate communication. The drawings are particularly useful in working with younger children who are not yet reading well and with other children having a variety of special needs. Children with emotional and behaviour problems, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, language impairment, autism, or mental health problems will all benefit from visual statements of what is expected in the classroom and other school settings.

Unschooling handbook: how to use the whole world as your child's classroom, The

GRIFFITH, Mary

1998    230 Pages    (Three Rivers Press)

ISBN 10: 0761512764

Did you know that a growing percentage of home schoolers are becoming unschoolers? The unschooling movement is founded on the principle that children learn best when they pursue their own natural curiosities and interests. Without bells, schedules, and rules about what to do and when, the knowledge they gain through mindful living and exploration is absorbed more easily and enthusiastically.
