Supporting Students on the Autism Spectrum in Inclusive Schools

A Practical Guide to Implementing Evidence-Based Approaches

Inclusive education has grown as an international movement to not only support students with disabilities, but to promote equitable access, participation, and success for all students. This book will transform the capacity of teachers and specialists working with students and families to effectively support an inclusive approach to education for students on the autism spectrum.

This practical guide is based on the translation of over six years of research from Autism CRC’s School Years Program into evidence-based and research-informed approaches and practices. Each are designed to support the work of teachers and specialists in inclusive educational environments.

This is one of two volumes written to support researchers, teachers and specialists working to develop inclusive educational environments and programs for students on the autism spectrum.

Its companion volume, Research Approaches to Supporting Students on the Autism Spectrum in Inclusive Schools: Outcomes, Challenges and Impact, provides an understanding of the challenges inherent in translating research into classroom practice and a framework for inclusive research in education.

The editorial team was led by Autism CRC’s School Years Program Director Professor Suzanne Carrington, and included Autism CRC Project Leaders Associate Professor Beth Saggers, Dr Keely Harper-Hill and Associate Professor Michael Whelan.
