Environmental supports and teaching strategies for tacking problem behaviour of children with AS in the classroom
Rebecca Moyes worked in collaboration with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to establish the Advisory Board on Autism and Related Disorders. This organization provides information and support to families of children with autism and the professionals who work with them in the Pittsburgh area. She served as the organization's principal officer for over five years. Her oldest child was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome eight years ago. Mrs Moyes is a former teacher, and today works as an educational consultant for children with autism spectrum disorders.
I found this to be a useful book. The approach it recommends is
based on well-tired principles of positive behaviour management the
author's style and obvious personal experience remind the reader to
look beyond the challenging or nuisance element of behaviour to
consider what that behaviour is trying to communicate, something
that is equally applicable for all children - not just those with
autistic spectrum disorders. I found this to be a very practical
book and believe it would be a useful resource for anyone working
with pupils whose behaviour is challenging, but especially those
with autistic spectrum disorders. -- NASEN
Moyes gently guides her reader through the practical aspects of constructing and evaluating an effective behaviour support programme.Teachers working with children with autism will find this book particularly helpful in developing a coherent approach to supporting children in the classroom. -- www.escalate.ac.uk
This book provides an excellent introduction to functional analysis of behaviour. The principles of examining behaviour and devising interventions are set out as realistic targets for the class teacher. The clear explanations and practical examples guide the reader through the steps of how to analyse behaviour and put individually tailored interventions into practice. -- Communication
