Item description for How Do I Teach This Kid? by Kimberly A. Henry...
First Runner-Up in the 2006 Writer's Notes Book Awards, this book utilizes the strengths of children with ASD to help them develop new skills. Tasks are visually oriented, consistent; expectations are clear. Children learn motor, matching, sorting, reading, writing, and math skills using easy-to-make "task boxes." Tasks include pushing items through a small openings (children love the "resistance" it takes to push them through); matching simple, identical pictures or words; sorting objects by color, size, or shape. Ideas are plentiful, materials colorful, and children love the repetitive nature of the tasks, which help them learn to work independently! Sample data sheets are included.

Wonderful Resource Aug 18, 2008
I am a second-year teacher working with Kindergarten special needs. I bought this book after having it recommended at a training. This book has brillant strategies for giving young children a way to do independent work, and it includes color pictures for each activity.
I have already begun using some of these work sysytems in my classroom and my kids love them. Not only do they feel accomplished but I am hoping this will help motivate them to work independently in the regular education classroom more often.
I would recommend this book to any one working with young children, whether they be classroom teachers, resource teachers, preschool/daycare, or parents. It has many simple yet amazing ideas.
Great resource book! Jun 20, 2008
This book has been a lifesaver! As a special education teacher, I am looking for ways for all my students to learn. I first started using activities in the book with my student with autism but then my other students became interested in the tasks and I use them for all my students!

I recently purchased this book in a search for appropriate planning for a child with autism who has aggressive behavior when required to complete any academic task. This book is wonderful and has helped me plan activities that this child can complete. Recommend it for anyone searching for hands on materials to help a child learn to learn.

I just received this book in the mail. I am currently teaching Special ED - Autism & also did so for my student teaching. Many of the activities in this book I used in my student teaching setting. They are good ideas that can be transformed & used a million different ways. Every teacher of kids with ASD needs it.
Great resource for special ed teachers! Jun 23, 2006
Really great ideas for activities in my classroom! There are 80 different matching, sorting, reading, writing and math tasks included in this book. These really help the student to learn how to work independently and stay on task. There are photos, descriptions, and list of materials needed for each task. I highly recommend this book to educators as well as parents. "So You Want to be a Special Education Teacher" is also a humorous, insightful, very enjoyable, must read for your library.
