about

School administrators play a key role in creating a mind-set within their school district, region, or school as to how school personnel approach various challenges they may encounter when working with students and families. In many instances, a school administrator can provide certain accommodations for students with disabilities, as well as guide decisions regarding how teachers address behavioral challenges.

The purpose of this book is to provide school administrators with useful and practical suggestions and strategies that can increase student achievement, engagement, positive behavior, and social skills for high-functioning students on the spectrum (HF-ASD); help reduce educator stress and frustration; and increase positive interactions between families and school personnel so that the school day is more successful for all parties.
