Teaching Time Management to Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Promote independence and increase opportunities through time management!
Teaching Time Management to Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder presents ways to facilitate time-management skills for learners with autism spectrum disorder across the lifespan. An individual with ASD may quickly learn time-telling skills; however, simply being able to tell time does not necessarily lead to time-management skills. This book presents ways to facilitate time-management skills for learners with autism spectrum disorder across the lifespan. Increasing one’s time-management abilities can lead to positive outcomes, including choice-making, efficiency, long-term employment, and increased opportunities for independent living.
