This laminated reference guide by Wendy Ashcroft, Sue Argiro and Joyce Keohane presents a step-by-step process for assessing students' strengths and challenges, developing accommodations and modifications, and selecting instructional strategies to be incorporated into a standards-based individual education program (IEP). It is designed for use with students in grades 1-8.
The six-page laminated tri-fold guide includes detailed examples of applying the process for students needing moderate (level 1) support to those needing very substantial (level 3) support. It describes an array of autism-specific, teacher friendly, evidence-based practices for addressing social skills, communication, and behavior. In addition, Autism and CCSS includes ideas for capitalizing on the strengths of learners with ASD, such as intense focus on areas of interest, logical thinking, attention to detail, visual processing, and rote memory.
