A functional behavior assessment is usually the starting place for students with high-functioning autism who have behaviors that do not serve them well. However, an FBA conducted at this point with students with classic autism may yield variable results. Practical Solutions for Stabilizing Students With Classic Autism to Be Ready to Learn: Getting to Go! is for students with a classic presentation of autism who struggle with regulation. This book is unique because it places importance on first offering stabilization strategies that help students with classic autism have a better regulated body. This often enables students to increase their time in school, with most of them working up to full-day participation. This simple-to-use book focuses on two major areas of stabilization found critical for students on the autism spectrum: sensory regulation and visual supports. With proper use of these strategies, the student with classic autism can get to GO! – that is, as long as they are regulated and supported. Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.
