Successful Problem-Solving for High-Functioning Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
January 24, 2013
By Autism Society
The objective of this book is to teach you how to integrate the Problem-Solving Chart into classrooms, homes and social skills groups to help individuals with ASD to learn to problem solve effectively. The strategy is considered an evidence-based strategy under the category antecedent-based interventions (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 2009; National Autism Center, 2009; National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, n.d.) That is, it is designed to be put in place prior to a behavior to prevent its occurrence. In addition, it has social validity. Problem-solving is a skill that is used across the lifespan in all environments.
While the challenges of teaching problem-solving may seem daunting, the barriers can be overcome. You may not see changes overnight, but keep at it. The author writes that through repetition of vocabulary and a simple protocol for problem-solving, you will succeed and, best of all, the child or student will benefit immensely now and in the future.
