K.I. Al-Ghani, experienced specialist advisory teacher, autism trainer and author of The Red Beast
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.

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.
