"The four volumes focusing on 'Autism and Education' in the Major Works series (Key Issues and Perspectives, Peer Relationships, School and Staff Issues, and Improving Experiences and Outcomes) bring together the many relevant strands of theory and research into a cohesive, coherent whole which is greater than the sum of its parts.
Neil Humphrey and colleagues have brought together a world-class collection of papers that demonstrate the many important ways in which people’s experiences with autism are always shaped by family, community, economics and politics. The volumes are an essential resource for anyone interested in autism education. They uniquely highlight the experiences of learners on the autism spectrum – the good and the bad – as they navigate their interactions with peers, teachers and other staff who support them and the broader system itself.
Finally education comes to the forefront in Neil Humphrey’s Autism and Education! Highly accessible, the 4- volume compendium of school based studies signals a touchstone in the field.
