Designed for teachers and parents, this video provides proven techniques and tips to help make mainstreaming a child with Asperger Syndrome a positive learning experience for him or her — AND for teachers and classmates. Whether a classroom has one teacher, or the support of special education teachers and aides, these approaches can help make the difference in a child’s education.

You’ll see interviews with psychologist Dr. Jed Baker, parents, regular and special education teachers, an instructional aide and a case manager/social worker — all describing specific steps that have worked for them in guiding and teaching children with AS in middle school through high school classes.

You can think of this as “Asperger Syndrome 101.” At 44 minutes, it’s the perfect length to view during an available class period (or to use as a teacher in-service program) and it points the way toward other resources to help generate continued success.
