With growing numbers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) being diagnosed in the early years, it is becoming increasingly important for education and health professionals to understand ASD and to implement supportive strategies as part of the everyday curriculum and routine. This book serves as an essential tool kit for anyone working with young children with ASD and speech, language, and communication needs (SLCN). Filled with practical and up-to-date tips, advice, and guidance, it shifts the responsibility of change from the child onto the caregiver, asking the question: what can we do to support the child?

Key features of this book include the following:

  • An introduction to ASD
  • Detailed case studies illustrating the varied impacts ASD can have on the life of a child
  • Practical activities and resources, including planning sheets and activity suggestions
  • Easy-to-follow chapters focusing on the classroom environment, communication, social interaction, play, and behaviour

Comprehensive, practical, and evidence based, this manual is essential reading for anyone working with children experiencing social communication difficulties and ASD in an early years setting.
