Developed by author Marilyn Chassman, One-on-One chronicles a five year effort to home school her son Brian, a child with autism who exhibited very aggressive behavior and was non-communicative.
Both video and manual present structured learning activities for students who are non-compliant and have minimal skill repertories. Both video and manual are geared towards professionals and parents working with low-functioning children with autism and other developmental disabilities.
The video shows Ms Chassman working with her son and highlights her teaching techniques. It focuses on reducing aggression, developing communication skills and learning to trace letters. Manual presents over 30 structured learning activities, step-by-step. Each activity is clearly illustrated and presented in detail to facilitate classroom use.
The focus is on breaking down a task to its basic components and linking them together one step at a time to form a complete activity. Activities begin with an easy match-to-sample exercise and progress to include typing simple words on the computer and following a picture schedule. The Manual covers: dealing with aggression, record keeping, communication, self-help, fine and gross motor skills, and sensory toleration. Includes numerous reproducibles.
