Success on the Spectrum: How to Teach Skills to Individuals with Autism was written to provide parents, educators, and professionals with a comprehensive overview of how to teach critical skills to individuals of all ages. This book was written in non-technical language and guides the reader through the teaching process which includes assessing a learner’s skills and prioritizing learning objectives, how to teach new skills in structured sessions and during routine daily activities, and how to address common problem behaviors. This book provides the knowledge and essential tools to promote effective teaching, thereby maximizing the learner’s potential.
As a former Special Education teacher and practicing BCBA, I highly recommend Success on the Spectrum to parents of children with developmental delays and teachers looking to hone their teaching and programming skills. This book was written with great clarity and will walk you through each of the steps and considerations needed to effectively teach skills to individuals with developmental delays. It’s an invaluable resource and a “go to” tool for those looking to make a difference!
