Item description for Out and About: Preparing Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders to Participate in Their Communities by Jill Hudson; Coffin; Amy Bixler...

Along with coauthor Amy Bixler, Jill Hudson has developed another of her trademark short, to-the-point resources that will be used again and again by parents and educators. This time the focus is on the every day, how to enable and support individuals on the autism spectrum to participate, to the maximum extent possible, in the community around them. In this simple book, the authors provide a framework for identifying the areas where an individual with ASD may need support to participate more fully and successfully in community activities. The framework, created as a Blueprint to be filled in, depending on the child and the outing being planned, lists 10 areas identified in best practice as effective types of support for children with ASD. Areas includewaiting plan, communication, social, visual, hidden curriculum, sensory, motivation, behavior, transition, and siblings or other students. For each area on the Blueprint, parents, teachers, coaches, family members anybody who lives or works with the child fills in ahead of time the support that best matches the child s needs for a given event. The hope is that the specially designed Blueprint will become second nature to its users as they become more familiar with the areas of support the child needs in various situations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Out and About: Preparing Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders to Participate in Their Communities?

Give a SHOUT for Out and About  Aug 16, 2007
Finally a hands-on simple to follow strategy to help kids with autism participate in the community. This book is so user friendly it should be in every household with kids who have autism. It provides a step by step blueprint for breaking down outings including birthday parties, class field trips, going to the movie, going to the mall, family gatherings at holidays...everything. Plus it has a sample story and strategy for each outing. It also covers the spectrum as far as covering kids of different ages and abilities. As an instructional aide working with students with autism, I recommend this book to teachers and aides to break down the issues and challenges related to getting these wonderful students out into the community. Sample visuals are included and the appendix is full of examples for each resource. Kudos to Hudson & Coffin! It's wonderful! Joanna Keating-Velasco, Author, A Is for Autism, F Is for Friend
