The Power Card Strategy 2.0 – Using Special Interests to Motivate Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Many researchers, parents, and autistics themselves have long understood the role of special interests in teaching and motivating individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet these intense areas of knowledge have not been widely integrated into the learning activities of children on the spectrum. It was author Elisa Gagnon’s insightful and innovative first edition of Power Cards that helped move the use of special interests forward, promoting classroom-based research on the deep areas of knowledge and learners on the spectrum. The authors are hopeful that the second edition of this book will further inspire professionals and parents to incorporate special interests into the lives of learners on the spectrum.
