100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Supporting Pupils with Autism is an essential resource filled with tried-and-tested ideas to best support the learning and development of pupils on the autism spectrum, in both mainstream and special schools.

The reported incidence of autism has risen dramatically in recent decades and the agenda for 'inclusion' has necessitated a greater understanding of autism in primary schools. However, already stretched school budgets mean that staff are often unable to access courses for further training in this area. Francine Brower uses her extensive experience and expertise to present 100 practical ideas to enhance learning and development by focusing on the needs of the individual pupil. This dip-in-and-out book offers ways to enable teachers to better understand autism and how they can create a more supportive learning environment. There are also strategies to help children develop their communication and social skills, and become more confident and independent as individuals.

Reviews for 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Supporting Pupils with Autism

Rooted in a broad inclusive ethos and 25 years of experience, this book is a well-structured treasure chest of practical reflections and ideas that will inform and support the needs of every teacher seeking to understand specific individual needs. * Chris Chivers, school governor, ITE tutor, blogger and former headteacher, @ChrisChivers2 * Francine brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and practical understanding to the complex world of autism. She ladles warmth, humanity and common sense into every layer of this wonderful book and shares her absolutely belief in the amazing possibilities of children with autism. * Dr Martin Hanbury, Executive Headteacher, Chatsworth Multi-Academy Trust * This book is a fabulous resource to not only increase knowledge and understanding of the individual needs of autistic pupils, and encourage acceptance of difference, but also to use as a practical resource to dip in and out of giving many ideas that are easy to implement and adapt. I love how the book encourages 'outside the box thinking', which is so important when we are catering for the individual needs of autistic children in the classroom. * Lisa Myers, Head of Operations, Training, Consultancy and Conferences, The National Autistic Society *
