Alan Scragg, ICT Teacher and the parent of a teenager with autismGAP - Good Autism Practice
Online Safety for children and teens on the autism spectrum is packed with practical strategies, approaches and examples to help carers and parents ensure that their children enjoy the educational and social benefits of the Internet in safety... The author has extensive experience of working both within the IT sector and with autistic children... This is a very readable and well laid out guide... The chapters are backed up by excellent case studies... At the end of the book, there is a very comprehensive A-Z terminology... This book is an excellent publication, there is so much great advice in its pages which we can all use everyday... It would also equally appeal to parents/carers of non-autistic children and would be of interest to professionals, social workers and teachers working with vulnerable children... highly recommended.
