"Balancing the Tray" by Lenore Gerould
"Fitting In and Speaking Out: Me and Asperger's Syndrome" written by Martin, a 5th grader with AS
"Sensory Integration Dysfunction in Young Children" by Linda Stephens
"Lessons from the Little Professor/Asperger's Syndrome: Wired Differently, Not Defectively' from the January 14, 2003 Washington Post
"The Asperger Chronicles" by Jim Devine
"Why Does He Act That Way?" by Stacy Hultgren
I also give them the video "ASK Me About Asperger's Syndrome from Michael Thompson Productions, and new this year, I'll be sharing the book, "Asperger's Syndrome: What Teachers Need to Know" (I think that's the title)
By giving them this stuff a week or so before school starts, they can call me with any questions that reading the material raises. This has worked well for us since first grade (the articles/resources have changed, but the idea is the same).
What do you do to prepare your child's teacher for the experience of having your child in class?
