A functional behavior assessment is usually the starting place for students with high-functioning autism who have behaviors that do not serve them well. However, an FBA conducted at this point with students with classic autism may yield variable results.
Practical Solutions for Stabilizing Students With Classic Autism to Be Ready to Learn: Getting to Go! is for students with a classic presentation of autism who struggle with regulation. This book is unique because it places importance on first offering stabilization strategies that help students with classic autism have a better regulated body. This often enables students to increase their time in school, with most of them working up to full-day participation. This simple-to-use book focuses on two major areas of stabilization found critical for students on the autism spectrum: sensory regulation and visual supports. With proper use of these strategies, the student with classic autism can get to GO! - that is, as long as they are regulated and supported.
Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.
I will cherish this book! GETTING TO GO offers wonderfully candid and useful insight into the perspective of students with classic autism. Judy Endow writes not only from her experience as an autism consultant but also from her own life experiences with autism. This powerful combination is tremendously useful for parents and teachers who often dream of truly understanding the challenges presented by their nonverbal children and students. Judy's straightforward manner of writing makes this a practical and easy-to-use resource for everyone. A teacher can pick up this book, understand the information, use the information, and be inspired all at the same time. --Kari Dunn Buron, author/autism education specialist, Hamline University, author of Incredible 5-Point Scale, When My Worries Get too Big!, A 5 Could Make Me Lose Control, A 5 Is Against the Law
GETTING TO GO! illustrates the importance of triaging students by employing stabilizing strategies prior to moving into the FBA phase of intervention. We are thereby able to meet the immediate needs of the student, family, and teachers while developing a comprehensive, long-term plan. The challenges faced by students with autism are numerous; GETTING TO GO! helps us to develop an understanding of what we can do to level the field and remove barriers we might otherwise not recognize. This is a tremendously valuable resource! --Lee Stickle, co-director, Kansas Instruction Support Network
