Education is an important aspect of the environmental influences on autism, and effective education can have a significant effect on outcome for those on the autism spectrum. This Handbook explores the key concepts, debates and research areas in this dynamic field. Contributions from a wide range of countries and cultures are organised into six key sections: Part 1: Learning Needs and Educational Responses; Part 2: Early Intervention, Education in Core Domains and Family Support; Part 3: School-Based and Academic Education: Access and Support; Part 4: Collaborative Working in Education; Part 5: Education for Life and Barriers to Education; Part 6: Data Collection in Education and Measurement of Progress. The SAGE Handbook of Autism and Education is a definitive resource for researchers, postgraduate students, reflective practitioners and teachers who wish to know and understand current views of the nature of autism, and best practice in educational support.
