At some point in their teaching career all teachers will come across a child with Asperger Syndrome. Asperger Syndrome - What Teachers Need to Know is the ideal starting point for teachers wishing to learn about Asperger Syndrome and how best to work with, help and get the most from a child with AS. Providing a summary of currently available information on AS and covering all the key issues that will concern teachers (e.g., social skills, homework, playground behaviour, assisting with study), Matt Winter, a teacher himself, also imparts tips and practical ideas that he has found successful in a school environment.
Matt Winter is a primary school teacher from New Zealand and has encountered children with Asperger Syndrome in all the schools he has worked in. In addition to his daily teaching, Matt has always been actively involved in charity work and currently volunteers with the Cloud 9 Children's Foundation, where he teaches a thirteen-year-old boy with Asperger Syndrome.
