Understanding Students with Autism through Art (No. 312)
BEVERLY LEVETT GERBER and JULIA KELLMAN, EDITORS

 

Classroom educators at all levels have been presented with new challenges and opportunities by great increases in the number of students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This book, written for preservice teachers and for practitioners in the field, shares the expertise of professionals from the fields of art education, special education, art therapy, museum education, and medical research. It highlights teachers’ stories, avoids excessive professional jargon, and provides proven examples of successful lessons and teaching/learning strategies in the classroom as well as in one-on-one settings. The book includes discussion questions and a helpful guide of annotated resources for inspiration, professional practice, recognition, and funding.

 

Understanding Students with Autism through Art is a valuable resource and practical reference that will inspire parents, teachers, and all who work with students on the spectrum diagnosed with autism or Asperger’s syndrome.

“A groundbreaking book that focuses attention on THE IMPORTANCE OF ART EDUCATION IN THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM… Through drawing skills, I went from being a child with autism to a successful designer of livestock handling facilities. Half the cattle in North America are handled in facilities I have designed.“
—Temple Grandin, Professor of Animal Science, Colorado State University, internationally recognized autism advocacy speaker
