Essential handbook on Asperger Syndrome (ASD) for time-poor teachers, from the author of All Cats Have Asperger's Syndrome
Kathy Hoopmann is best known for All Cats have Asperger Syndrome, Inside Asperger's Looking Out and The Asperger Adventure series and the simplicity, charm and insight of these books has made them must-haves for explaining the diagnoses of Asperger's worldwide. Her work has won and been shortlisted for many literary awards including the Children's Book Council of Australia Award, the Childhood Wellness Moonbeam Award (US), and the Nautilus Award (US). She also has over 20 years classroom experience and has an intimate understanding of needs of teachers and ASD students alike.
Kathy Hoopman's latest book should be compulsory reading for anyone involved in the education of children with AS. Seldom do you find such depth of information in so accessible a form. Busy teachers will find the "Issue Sorter" a life saver. No need to plough through the text, just identify the problem and turn straight to the strategies. This book has an added dimension in that it gives the pupil with AS a voice and provides engaging activities that can be used class-wide. Inspired and absolutely essential reading. -- K.I. Al-Ghani, experienced specialist advisory teacher, autism trainer and author of The Red Beast This essential manual provides a wealth of useful and holistic strategies to support inclusion in all aspects of school life for pupils identified as having Asperger syndrome. The author, Kathy Hoopmann, has over 20 years of classroom experience and this shines through... The strategies offered are realistic, sensible and perfect for the non-specialist teacher to have a go at implementing... I especially like the section on sensory issues... It would support any school in developing inclusive practices that would help a pupil with Asperger syndrome to be successful and well prepared for life beyond school. -- Beccie Hawes, head of an inclusion advisory service * Nasen Special *
