Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) present a perplexing challenge for parents and school professionals. Literally dozens of interventions and treatments are available, so how does one know which intervention strategy works best for any given child or situation?

Each category contains several detailed reviews, including: - A description of the intervention or treatment - Reported benefits and effects associated with its use - A synthesis of how the outcomes relate to individuals with ASD - A discussion of who is best qualified to implement the intervention, including when and where - Potential costs and risks Comprehensive in scope, this resource briefly evaluates over 40 commonly used and purported interventions and treatments for individuals with ASD, as well as detailed evaluations of their utility and efficiency. It will assist readers in critically evaluating and choosing those methods that have the highest probability of yielding benefits for this special population. Printed Pages: 260. 033045

5 Children and Youth with Asperger Syndrome: Strategies for Success in Inclusive Settings

Brenda Myles

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8178299119 / 9788178299112, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Asperger syndrome (AS) is a disorder in the autism spectrum, and students with AS suffer from similar, though milder, symptoms as students with autism. Classroom teachers who are responsible for planning for and teaching students with AS generally have not been provided the skills and knowledge to do so. Crafting and implementing plans for students is nearly impossible without a clear understanding of the disorder, or clearly defined instructional methods and strategies. Children and Youth With Asperger Syndrome provides important strategies in teaching children and youth diagnosed with AS. This essential resource for teachers and other educators presents research-based, instructional, behavioral, and environmental strategies for teachers, including: - Adaptations for success in general education settings - Environmental modifications, including visual supports and organizational strategies - Technology accommodations - Transition planning - Emotional, behavioral, and social supports Children and youth with AS are often misunderstood. These individuals have great potential that frequently remains unrealized because the modifications they require to be successful are not made. By using the practical strategies in this guide, however, educators can at last effectively meet the needs of students with AS. Printed Pages: 196. 028679

20 Inclusive Education Across Cultures: Crossing Boundaries, Sharing Ideas

Mithu Alur and Vianne Timmons (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8178299038 / 9788178299037, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This comprehensive collection provides a global perspective on inclusive education. The existing literature delves into whether inclusive practice is about educating children with disabilities or children from diverse backgrounds. The articles in this compilation assert that it is both. Inclusive Education Across Cultures: Crossing Boundaries, Sharing Ideas brings together multiple perspectives to present a compelling case for inclusive practice in different areas of inclusive education, ranging from policy initiatives to practices on the ground level, and advocating and creating awareness. The articles present examples that are explicitly disability-focussed and at the same time present a vision of inclusion that is about societal reform. These articles provide a voice to the people living with disabilities and enable us to learn from their stories. They not only provide theoretical information, but also connect theory and practice by discussing implemented models and practical resources. This work will be a valuable resource material for all those involved in the study of education, social work and psychology. Printed Pages: 500. 033307

23 Learning and Teaching English in India

Ravi Sheorey

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0761934650 / 9780761934653, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book presents empirical studies on the various factors that influence English language learning and teaching in India. In particular, the author examines whether and to what extent the variables which have been shown to influence second language learning in monolingual countries also apply to the Indian situation which is characterized by multilingualism and multiculturalism. Among the various aspects discussed in this book are Indian students` (and their teachers`) ‘theories?about learning English; their preferences or styles for language learning; the learning and reading strategies they use to enhance their competence in English; the degree of language learning anxiety they experience; and their attitudes toward, and motivation for, learning English. Ravi Sheorey also explores Indian teachers` judgments of the errors they come across in the writings of their students. The results are compared to studies with subjects from other countries and the implications for the learning and teaching of English are discussed in each chapter. Printed Pages: 226. 028653

25 Learning from Children What to Teach Them

Malavika Kapur

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0761936114 / 9780761936114, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This enriching book explores quality education at the grassroots level for disadvantaged children. It evolves and evaluates strategies for the promotion of the overall development of children in the motor, cognitive, language, emotional, social and moral domains. The methods used revolve around children, with a larger purpose of shaping young minds as opposed to solely enhancing academic skills. The essence of the book lies in what adults can learn from children while teaching them. Though the book stems from case studies of schools in rural Karnataka, it has implications for effectively providing quality education to children across the nation. It quantitatively evaluates the process of intervention that consists of 20-25 hours of group work with the school children and qualitatively describes the outcome in terms of promotion of psycho-social development.

26 Management of Cerebral Palsy: A Transdisciplinary Approach

Kate Tebbett

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0761933972 / 9780761933977, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Children with a debilitating condition like cerebral palsy receive treatment from a variety of specialised therapists at once. This book documents and builds on the experiences of a team of special educators in south India, who have been experimenting with a new strategy for working with children with disabilities. In this approach, rehabilitation workers are trained in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy, thereby preparing them to serve as `Trandisciplinary?workers. These workers are thus equipped to offer each child a holistic treatment programme and more relevant integrated care for a range of disabilities. Termed the Trandisciplinary (TD) approach, this method is even more pertinent to India and other developing countries where the numbers are large and the resources few, thereby making this method effective and accessible to many more. While sharing the learning from this experiment, the author: - describes how the model of the Transdisciplinary approach was conceptualised and implemented—including the development of an innovative `TD course`; - illustrates, with case studies, how the TD approach is based on a lifespan perspective and allows the family to function as naturally as possible, while still successfully addressing the needs of a child with a disability; - argues that the TD approach, with its continuous give-and-take among stakeholders, makes the disabled person a partner in the treatment plan and is an improvement over the existing model that focuses primarily on medical services; and - puts into perspective the role of the professional rehabilitation worker in the context of the understanding of disability today.

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8178298252 / 9788178298252, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Learning disabilities (LDs) remain one of the least understood and most debated disabling conditions that affect children. Perspective on Learning Disabilities in India: Current Practices and Prospects showcases how researchers and practitioners in the country have evolved strategies to resolve the fundamental questions related to LDs, while focusing on marginalized and disadvantaged groups. It not only highlights the basic issues and controversies in this field but also presents innovative, theory-driven approaches to the assessment and remediation of LDs. It also emphasizes the role of teachers—a useful resource in the absence of trained professionals—in the identification of LDs in children. The book offers a rich overview of ways to proceed in case of LDs, thus making it a must-read for researchers, experts, and professionals associated with this field. The expert contributors to this volume provide heuristic insights that can facilitate the formulation of a research agenda and services for people with LDs in India, where research and practice in the field is still at a nascent stage.

Tahir Mahmood (ed.)

ImprintOne, New Delhi, India, 8188861030 / 9788188861033, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The right of the minorities to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice guaranteed by the Constitution of India has from the very beginning been entangled in a labyrinth of political vicissitudes and changing judicial attitudes.

35 Reading Children: Essays on Children's Literature

Rimi B. Chatterjee and Nilanjana Gupta

Orient BlackSwan, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8125037004 / 9788125037002, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Children’s literature as a genre has not received much attention from the academic world in India up till now. This collection of essays and articles, is an attempt to look at the shape of writing for children from the nineteenth century onwards, and to question the political and cultural context in which it took place. Crucial questions include the conundrum of whether (and how) childhood and its books have been ‘invented?by publishers and writers, and how and from what sources literature of the child has been produced and presented. This includes the vexed question of textbooks and their relationship to the State, the imperial context and the creation of the categories of subject and ruler in child readers, the marketing of literature through journals and other media, questions of gender and gendered reading, and the complex interplay between real and fictional children. Focusing on India but ranging all over the world, these essays create a foundation and a starting point for discussion on this subject in academic contexts in India. Written by experts in their various fields, the essays cover subjects as diverse as the philosophy behind the Amar Chitra Katha comic books from the 1960s onwards in India, the writings of Lila Majumdar, a pioneer writer for girls in Bengali, Rudyard Kipling and his imperial animal kingdom, Dhan Gopal Mukerji, winner of the Newbery Prize for children’s fiction in 1928, Winnie the Pooh as a version of the pastoral, and secret readers of the Boy’s Own Paper. The introduction pulls together the various critical strands implicit in the book and situates Indian scholarship on the map of genre theory, providing students with a handy point of reference. Now that teaching and research in India is becoming interested in popular genres, and syllabi are broadening to include non-canonical literature, this book will fill a need for critical work on literature for children.

36 Reading Difficulties with Dyslexia: An Interpretation for Teachers

J.P. Das

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8178298953 / 9788178298955, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This book is a ready reckoner on dyslexia, a condensed and updated source of information on the subject, for not only teachers and parents, but also for professionals concerned with Learning Disabilities. For the school psychologist, the book is an interpretation that gives pre-eminence to the PASS (Planning-Attention-Simultaneous-Successive) theory of cognitive processes—the four major processes that replace traditional views of IQ and redefine intelligence. Reading Difficulties and Dyslexia: An Interpretation for Teachers answers questions like: What is dyslexia? How do reading difficulties develop? How does one deal with dyslexia?

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0761934197 / 9780761934196, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This volume discusses key aspects of the economics of the elementary education system in the poorer and educationally backward states of India, while also examining one high-achiever state—Tamil Nadu. Providing the first state-by-state analysis of major cost and financing issues, the book is based on data gathered from one of the most comprehensive surveys conducted in recent times in these states, which was specifically commissioned for this book. The survey covered 120,000 households and a thousand schools spread over 91 districts in eight states. Written by leading educational economists, the original essays in this volume - analyse the major cost and financing issues in elementary schooling in seven of the eight states surveyed—Assam, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal; - identify recent initiatives made by the governments of these seven states; - systematically scrutinise the pattern of the public spending in elementary education; - examine enrolment in government schools and the quality of education that they impart; - study household expenditure on schooling—the costs to parents of sending children to school; and - compare government schools with private schools, showing how the private sector has began to take over the what should be the responsibility of the government, particularly in the poorer states.
