Book DescriptionIt is a common misconception that children on the autism spectrum find mathematics easy. In fact the opposite is true for some, and exposure to basic mathematics in the early years can be crucial in establishing the foundations for understanding later in life.This book provides practical strategies and tools for teaching key mathematics concepts to children with an autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays. The authors emphasise the importance of incorporating a child's special interest into learning in order to help them engage fully with new concepts. Topics covered include colours, shapes, categories, numerals, sequencing, addition and subtraction and using money, and the book includes worksheets and activities for incorporating mathematics into daily living skills.This is an essential resource for teachers, teaching assistants and parents who wish to develop mathematics skills in children with an autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays.
Editorial ReviewThis book is great, a very welcome resource, one that will take the fear and confusion out of learning mathematics. I often say, 'you know how so many autistic people are great with numbers? I'm not one of them!' How I wish it had been around when I was growing up. Importantly, it shows how to utilise a child's interest. This is where our hearts are, this is how we learn best. This book will open doors for so many children and set them up for life-long learning. It's magic. -- Dr Wendy Lawson, author of Life Behind Glass: A Personal Account of Autism Spectrum Disorder I have known the authors of these practical and effective mathematics programmes for many years and I have great admiration for their insight into the minds and learning styles of children with an ASD, as well as their knowledge of how to capture the child's attention and clearly explain mathematical concepts...I know this is the book that parents and teachers of young children with an ASD, from severe autism to Asperger's syndrome, have been seeking for a long time. -- from the foreword by Tony Attwood This is book which aims to take the fear out of learning maths by teaching it in a very practical manner. Its contents are easily digestible and it will be of great interest to parents, teachers and support staff of pupils with ASD and other developmental delays. -- SNIP The writers suggest that teachers often struggle with the question of where to start; this guide is provided as an answer.
