Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Model for High Quality Coaching offers a unique coaching model with a practical approach for special education teachers and service providers. Educators face the challenge of accommodating students with complex neurodevelopmental disorders. By empowering special education personnel to participate as coaches, educators can go beyond simple accommodation and actively provide a less restrictive setting, dynamically assess skills, and build an effective coaching network to engage students throughout the entire school day.

Throughout the book, readers will find vignettes that illustrate the reality of special education. Each vignette is concluded with evidence-based support that describes the positive results of the strategies implemented. This book introduces coaching methods that will guide teachers and instructional staff to create and maintain a "solutions focused" coaching community.

Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Model for High Quality Coaching serves as a clinical guide that delivers a practical discussion of high quality coaching as an emerging best practice for supporting special educators including teachers, paraprofessionals, and school-based service providers, such as speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists. It is a valuable primary text for special education teachers in training, a resource for professional development personnel, and a tool for researchers and graduate students in Education and Teaching programs.
