Shirley Cohen, Ph.D.
Author of the book Targeting Autism used in EDUC 712Z
My book, Targeting Autism, seeks to help teachers and other professionals understand the world of autism from various perspectives including those of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), families of such children, and educational professionals. This book reflects my direct experience teaching children with autism as well as my later experiences observing such children in their educational settings, interviewing staff of the programs that serve them, meeting with parents, and training teachers who will be working with children on the autism spectrum.
The goal of this book is to establish a strong foundation of understanding that will guide and support the variety of educational strategies helpful to children with ASD as well as to other children with special needs.
