Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Special Learning, Inc., a comprehensive Autism solutions company, today announced the release of its Educator Teaching Series eBook “Living in the Mainstream: Supporting Children With Developmental Disabilities in Inclusive Settings.” As another offering in the series of Educator Teaching learning resources, this eBook presents a tool to support parents and teachers in easing their children and students with developmental disabilities out of their sheltered existence and into the real world. It presents a glimpse of how society views disability and addresses how children with developmental disabilities can be aided in the adjustment to living in inclusive environments apart from their homes, schools or therapy centers. Importantly, it empowers advocates of children with Autism to help eliminate discrimination in society and enlighten people by making them aware of the plight of people with disabilities and how they can become more understanding and accepting of them.
This Educator Teaching Series eBook is a learning resource and reading companion aimed not only at teachers but also parents and other individuals in the life of the child with Autism and other special needs. It provides a practical guide to Inclusion, the current trend in schools that have chosen to embrace diversity in their classrooms. Mastering inclusion in the classroom entails teachers learning special skills to deal with students of various backgrounds, abilities and disabilities. This eBook will serve as valuable support as teachers learn proven strategies to be more successful in the implementation of Inclusion in their classrooms.
The focus of the book is on how adults, especially teachers, can prepare various environments to be more accepting of children with developmental disabilities as well as prepare the child to join the mainstream community as a contributing individual. You will learn how tools such as lesson plans, educational orientations and social stories can help children prepare for, and adjust to, new settings. To ensure the transition is comfortable and truly inclusive, this eBook also explores the role of diversity training and support groups in helping parents, peers and others provide a supportive and open-minded environment.
