SPECIALIST SUPPORT APPROACHES TO AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER STUDENTS IN MAINSTREAM SETTINGS. By Sally Hewitt. Jessica Kingsley. pound;15.95

Anyone working in mainstream settings with children and young people who have autistic spectrum disorders will find this guide accessible and comprehensive.

It offers practical advice on the everyday difficulties that many children face, and gives further advice for older students in secondary settings (an area which in the past has been neglected). It also offers reassurance to parents who are only too well aware of how vulnerable their children are if reasonable adjustments are not made in mainstream schools.

The book emphasises the importance of good homeschool liaison to ensure that young people who have to deal constantly with high levels of anxiety can move towards independence.
