Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children (TEACCH) is a state wide system for assisting and supporting people with autism spectrum disorders and their families … . The TEACCH Approach to Autism Spectrum Disorders is an interesting book in that it provides a comprehensive overview of the approach. Educators and parents can acquire useful information … that will assist their effort to teach and deal with students with autism. The book provides specific intervention strategies for the parents of autistic children." (Fawzy Ebrahim, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51 (8), 2006)

From the Back Cover

TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication-handicapped CHildren) has grown over the past three decades from a small clinic for children to an internationally recognized treatment and support modality for individuals of all ages with autism spectrum disorders. In The TEACCH Approach to Autism Spectrum Disorders, the program’s founders and their colleagues explain its methods and philosophy based on an understanding and respect for "the culture of autism."

The TEACCH program focuses on persons with autism and the development of instruction and supports based on each individual’s skills, interests, and needs. It draws from the research literature in psychology and neuropsychology to create activities and environments that are organized to emphasize meaningfulness—an approach that has proved crucial to an autistic individual’s ability to learn, comprehend, and apply learning across situations.

The TEACCH Approach to Autism Spectrum Disorders explains how:

 - TEACCH targets critical areas in executive functioning, engagement, communication, and social skills.

 - Strategies can be tailored to an individual’s unique developmental and functional level.

 - Parents become involved in all phases of intervention as collaborators, cotherapists, and advocates.

 - The program can be introduced and adapted for individuals of all ages, from preschool children to adults.

 - Professionals can be trained in the program and its methods.

This progressive program offers individuals with autism, their families, teachers, and therapists both optimism and useful strategies, without minimizing the condition or its effects. All clinicians working with people with autism will find The TEACCH Approach to Autistic Spectrum Disorders a valuable resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful resource! July 25, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I found this book useful on so many different levels. First, as a teacher of students with autism and related conditions, there were so many ideas to try. Second, as a parent of an adolescent on the spectrum, I found the sections on adults very informative. Mesibov is one of those rare professionals that takes into account the perspectives of those on the autism spectrum. This book not only recognizes individuality, but celebrates it! Truly one of the most helpful books I have come across!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book in review June 28, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent resource for understanding the philosophy of the treatment orientation known as TEACCH. As you read, you realize just how deeply committed these people are to partnerships with people with ASD and their families. Theirs is not a doctor/patient relationship, but is rather a cooperative effort in which each person appreciates and builds on the other's strength. In this sense, autism becomes more a particular way of looking at the world than a disability; that is, people with autism are supported through an understanding of their strengths and not their difficulties. TEACCH looks at what is possible, not what can never be because of a diagnostic label. Well written, thoroughly researched and an easy read. I recommend it highly.

When working with children with Autism, it is good to know all methods available. I know I like to take a little from each method. This method has some great ideas. Check it out.
