Additional Book Details

Self-Determination offers specific and clearly described strategies for ensuring individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are fully involved in their program plans and outcomes. Research suggests that self-determination, defined as acting as the causal agent in ones own life, results in more positive outcomes in school, post-school employment, postsecondary education, and community living. However, students with ASD report lower levels of self-determination than their same-age peers. This book is designed for teachers, direct-support personnel, and families, to enable them to support children and youth with ASD in acquiring the skills they need to become self-determined.
