This book presents original, empirical research that reframes how educators should consider autism and educational inclusion. Rebecca Wood carefully unpicks common misapprehensions about autism and how autistic children learn, and reconsiders what inclusion can and should mean for autistic learners in school settings.

Drawing on research and interwoven with comments from autistic child and adult contributors throughout, the book argues that inclusion will only work if the ways in which autistic children think, learn, communicate and exhibit their understanding are valued and supported. Such an approach will benefit both the learner and the whole classroom. Considering topics such as the sensory environment, support, learning and cognition, school curriculums, communication and socialisation, this much needed book offers ideas and insight that reflect the practical side of day-to-day teaching and learning, and shows how thinking differently about autism and inclusion will equip teachers to effectively improve teaching conditions for the whole school.

Reviews

Dr Wood's highly readable book deserves to become a classic. It is unique in the ease with which it connects complex ideas about autism with practical ideas about how to make inclusion work. I have learned an enormous amount from this book, and whether you're a parent, a teacher or just interested in autism this book is a must.
— Gary Thomas, Professor of Inclusion and Diversity, University of Birmingham

Rebecca Wood has opened the door for any teacher who wants to do better for autistic pupils. The lived experience of autistic people is eloquently woven through her important research findings. I urge all educators to embrace the key messages in this book, your pupils and their parents will thank you for it.
— Charlene Tait, Deputy Chief Executive, Scottish Autism

Beautifully written, in a highly accessible style, Inclusive Education for Autistic Children tackles vitally important and complex issues in education for autistic children. Dr Rebecca Wood's depth of experience and expertise in both education and autism sing from every page. The clear message is that inclusion is not inclusion unless it is designed for all pupils, and we should stop trying to change children and start changing our educational practices. The prominent inclusion of diverse autistic voices, from both children and adults, weaves through and enriches this book, which will be invaluable reading for all involved with autistic children and schools.
— Professor Francesca Happé FBA FMedSci, Director, SGDP Centre, King's College London and Ex-President, International Society for Autism Research
