This book provides a very useful extension of Linda Miller's 5P Approach to managing children and teenagers with ASD that helps develop flexibility, choice and self-advocacy in those for whom cognitive and emotional factors have rendered such skills a challenge. -- Trevor Sim, Principal Educational psychologist, London Borough of Havering
An excellent book which will be of enormous benefit for those interested in understanding the impact of flexibility in children on children's learning, social behaviour and independence. Linda Miller builds on previous research and writes in a language which is accessible to both lay and professional people. As such, it is the first book on flexibility in its own right which combines theory, assessment tools and practical strategies. A must for parents/carers, teachers, professionals, schools and other organisations! -- Esther Fenty, educational psychologist
It's great to have such an informative book about this complex area. The easy-to-use toolkit measures impact, outcomes and identifies next steps for developing flexibility. This is an area that can really impact on a child's learning. There has been a need for something like this for a long time. It really compliments the 5P Approach to Behaviour -- Sue Blows, Headteacher, Hatton School, UK
Linda's second book builds upon the successful 5P approach for Behaviour Management and tackles the tricky area of developing flexibility which impacts individuals with Autism. The book is accessible, illuminates the issues and develops understanding of this critical area and provides a framework for practitioners and parents to baseline, plan intervention and track progress. This is an exciting and essential tool for those working to improve the lives of people with autism. -- Adrienne Wright, Head Teacher, Kestrel House School London
A fresh, new insight into autism practice and a successful attempt to redefine the child-centred specialist approach through a step-by-step structured assessment of flexibility skills. This book will constitute an essential guide for professionals and entire organizations working with children with poor flexibility skills and which aim at creating the foundation for development of independence and successful learning. -- Andrea Centonze, Senior Assistant Psychologist, Kestrel House School
This resource has been designed as a book of sustainable, practical problem-solving approaches to improve flexibility for people with autism and to provide a planning and assessment framework for those who support them... The underpinning elements of the 5P (profiling, prioritizing, problem analysis, problem solving and planning) approach are the triad of practitioner tools... that will enable practitioners to create a plan to improve flexibility in people with autism... Another essential aspect of the tools is that they take a person approach... I would advise any SENCO to have this book on their wishlist. -- Conrad Bourne, secondary school assistant principal and SENCO * Nasen Special *
