This book presents original, empirical research that reframes how educators should consider autism and educational inclusion. Rebecca Wood carefully unpicks common misapprehensions about autism and how autistic children learn, and reconsiders what inclusion can and should mean for autistic learners in school settings.

Drawing on research and interwoven with comments from autistic child and adult contributors throughout, the book argues that inclusion will only work if the ways in which autistic children think, learn, communicate and exhibit their understanding are valued and supported. Such an approach will benefit both the learner and the whole classroom. Considering topics such as the sensory environment, support, learning and cognition, school curriculums, communication and socialisation, this much needed book offers ideas and insight that reflect the practical side of day-to-day teaching and learning, and shows how thinking differently about autism and inclusion will equip teachers to effectively improve teaching conditions for the whole school.

Rebecca Wood is an ESRC postdoctoral Fellow at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King's College, London. She was project manager for the Transform Autism Education Project at the University of Birmingham and previously worked for several years as a mainstream school teacher before switching to autism education.

Rebecca Wood has opened the door for any teacher who wants to do better for autistic pupils. The lived experience of autistic people is eloquently woven through her important research findings. I urge all educators to embrace the key messages in this book, your pupils and their parents will thank you for it. -- Charlene Tait, Deputy Chief Executive, Scottish Autism Dr Wood's highly readable book deserves to become a classic. It is unique in the ease with which it connects complex ideas about autism with practical ideas about how to make inclusion work. I have learned an enormous amount from this book, and whether you're a parent, a teacher or just interested in autism this book is a must. -- Gary Thomas, Professor of Inclusion and Diversity, University of Birmingham
