Smart kids with autism spectrum disorders need specific interventions to find success in school and beyond. Featuring a foreword by Temple Grandin, School Success for Kids With High-Functioning Autism shares practical advice for implementing strategies proven to be effective in school for dealing with the “Big 10” obstacles, including social interactions, inflexibility, behavior issues, attention and organization, homework, and more.

Based on the new criteria in the DSM-5, School Success for Kids With High-Functioning Autism also describes how autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and social communication disorders (SCD) will now identify the students formerly identified as having Asperger’s syndrome, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, high-functioning autism, or PDD-NOS. Relying on the latest research, and presenting it in easy-to-understand and practical language, the authors identify how the key components of ASD and SCD will appear to parents and professionals and what steps should be taken once these signs are evident. This book is sure to help any parent or teacher wanting to see their smart kids with autism succeed!
