Enhancing the Well-Being of Students on the Autism Spectrum – Learning from Students, Parents, and Teachers
The importance of enhancing students’ well-being is recognized around the world, yet the well-being of autistic students remains largely unexplored. With the increasing enrolment of autistic students in mainstream schools, it is imperative to develop a comprehensive understanding of the well-being of autistic students to facilitate their sense of well-being in school.
Enhancing the Well-Being of Students on the Autism Spectrum offers an in-depth understanding of the well-being of students on the autism spectrum using the innovative research methodology, Photovoice. Throughout the text, the author incorporates photographs taken by students on the autism spectrum, as well as interviews with the students, their teachers, and parents, to bring the authentic experiences of these students to the fore. The book also covers:
- An overview of the well-being of autistic students;
- Barriers to the well-being of autistic students and ways to overcome them;
- Protective factors of the well-being of autistic students and ways to develop these within the school context.
This book is a necessary companion for postgraduate students in the field of education and special education, practitioners within the school context, and researchers interested in the area of autism spectrum condition or student well-being.
