The title does not only cover teaching methods, but also discusses behavioral management, which is a critical skill in dealing with autism. The text first deals with the problems of diagnosis and classification, and then proceeds to talking about the role of teacher and psychologists in the education of autistic children. Next, the selection details the management of behavioral problems. The text also tackles the aims and methods of teaching, along with language problems and a method of assessment and teaching. The seventh chapter discusses organization of a school for autistic children, and the last chapter reviews some books about individual children.
