This system allows educators to understand how to implement an instructional program for students with ASD. Known as CAPS, the model answers common questions about finding the right supports to fit a child’s learning style in order to help him reach his full potential. Used with The Ziggurat Model, CAPS enables educators and other professionals to address adequate yearly progress (AYP), response to intervention (RTI), and positive behavior support (PBS). The student manual contains the following features to help strengthen students’ understanding of material discussed within each chapter and ability to apply the material to everyday work with individuals with autism spectrum and related disorders. For Each Chapter: • Chapter Learner Objectives – List of learner objectives at the beginning of each chapter as a preview of the chapter’s content. The learner objectives also highlight information that readers are expected to understand and be able to explain after reading the chapter. • Chapter Summaries – Overview of the main points discussed within the chapter. • Glossary – Alphabetical listing of important vocabulary terms presented in grey boldface within the book. • Chapter Review Questions and Answers – Questions and accompanying answers designed to check understanding of and ability to explain the information discussed within the chapter. The review questions may also be used as a study guide when preparing for tests and/or exams that may be administered in class.
