An extremely comprehensive and well-rounded collection of perspectives on the complex factors that have shaped the context in which autism services are provided as well as the important issues that must be addressed in order to move the needle on improving outcomes for children with ASD and their families. (Eric G. Kurtz, director of Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Clinical Operations, and Autism Spectrum Disorders Program, associate professor of pediatrics, University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine)
Mark K. Claypool and John M. McLaughlin systematically examine how the increased diagnostic rate of autism, the emergence of autism advocacy and Autism Speaks in particular, and the passage of autism insurance mandates have radically shifted the way in which our society views disability. How Autism is Reshaping Special Education makes it very clear that sweeping, meaningful policy change is imperative in the next reauthorization of IDEA. Claypool and McLaughlin make a compelling argument that IDEA must be unbundled in order to increase opportunities and outcomes for all children with disabilities. (Sarah Trautman-Eslinger, president and founder, STE Consultants, LLC)
How Autism is Reshaping Special Education is a thoughtful analysis of the current ‘square peg, round hole’ context that creates so many challenges and barriers for students with autism. It provides rational and practical suggestions that will hopefully inform change and maximize outcomes for people with autism. (Amy K. Weinstock, director of Autism Insurance Resource Center, instructor of psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School/Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center)
