It's No Biggie! Autism in the Early Childhood Classroom by Dr. Linda Barboa
It's No Biggie: Autism in the Early Childhood Classroom is designed as an introduction for preschool teachers, childcare workers and others working with young children to best practices in working with all children, but most notably with those on the autism spectrum. The book contains background information on effective early childhood practices, with an emphasis on students who are or may be on the autism spectrum. The very knowledgeable and experienced authors present an overview of autism, specific strategies for the classroom teacher now dealing with those on the autism spectrum, as well as interesting and insightful vignettes that bring these strategies to life. Chapters on the special education process, working with parents and with other professionals, and facing the challenges presented in working with young special needs children provide practical suggestions for both experienced educators, and those new to the world of special education.
