Great to any self-contained classroom, don't let the title fool you.
"A Mentor Teacher in a book!" How to Set Up a Classroom for Students with Autism Second Edition is a manual for student teachers, college professors, teachers, paraprofessionals, related service providers and administrators new to working with students in autism classrooms or self-contained special education classrooms. It is also useful to professionals who would like to enhance their current autism or special education classroom set-up. I can't imagine a teacher starting the school year without these guidelines and strategies.
This edition has newly added discussion questions at the end of each chapter, some new chapters, and reproducible templates to help educators organize the classroom. The manual is easy to read and is full of great ideas. With items such as detailed instructions about classroom set up, ideas for collaborating with others, data collection templates and behavior intervention plan examples, this manual continues to be a major support for any professional learning to work in, or currently working in a classroom for students with autism or special needs! Additionally, it is a perfect tool for anyone who is student teaching in the Special Education field as well.
