Asperger Syndrome in the Inclusive Classroom: Advice and Strategies for Teachers will become a 'security blanket' for teachers first experiencing Asperger Syndrome in their classroom. This book is a common-sense approach to working with these children. The book discusses adaptations in the classroom, teaching of academic subjects, special subject classes, unstructured school time, and social and emotional concerns of children with Asperger Syndrome. Teachers who read this book will now say, 'I'm getting a child with Asperger Syndrome; let's work together and make this a positive experience for everyone.'"
