Summary
High-profile author Excellent companion to new projects in Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Including students with severe disabilities in mainstream classrooms has become more and more common. These severe disabilities include both physical and intellectual, and the Downing project tackles the most common subject area for inclusion - literacy. Covering a wide age spectrum the author looks at: accessing the general curriculum; literary activities; parental involvement; pre- and post-assessment; IEPs; peer support; school-wide approaches; evaluation and grading; goal-setting. The project also includes very practitioner-oriented pedagogy, including Frequently Asked Questions, chapter by chapter references, bibliography with short summaries, and relevant websites
