ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCHResearch and resources that help families today!August 1, 2005Dear Educators,The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) was founded in 2001 with the intent toraise money,fund research, and change lives. OAR funds research that holds practical value fortodays families,
answering questions they face daily. As part of this mission, we strive to putinformation into the hands ofthose who need it most parents, teachers, and other professionals. The first two
 publications in our LifeJourney through Autism series address issues relating to autism research andeducation for elementary-aged children with autism. This guide, An Educators Guide to Asperger Syndrome,
 addresses thespecific needs of students with Asperger Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder(ASD).Education is an important issue to every parent, and it becomes even more criticalwhen the childhas an ASD. As we developed the first Educators Guide to Autism, it became clear
 that the issueschildren with classic autism face in school differ significantly from thoseexperienced by children withAsperger Syndrome. So we decided to separate the two disorders and focus an entirebook on each.The Educators Guide to Autism has been distributed to more than 4,000 teachers
 and families, and wehave received positive feedback on its utility in the classroom. It is my hopethat this guide will besimilarly informative and useful.Asperger Syndrome presents myriad challenges in the classroom setting. It affectsthe way achild thinks, feels, and behaves. Children with this disorder display significantimpairments in cognitiveand social skills, which can negatively impact their relationships with peers.This guide is designed togive teachers and other professionals an introduction to Asperger Syndrome, someof its characteristics,and several teaching strategies that can be employed in the classroom. It is meantto serve as a startingpoint for further learning; it is not meant to have all the answers. Each childwith Asperger Syndrome isdifferent; this book will help you recognize the specific challenges faced by thechild(ren) with AspergerSyndrome in your class, and how to prepare your classroom appropriately.We are extremely fortunate to work with Dr. Brenda Myles, one of the Nations top
 experts onAsperger Syndrome and would like to thank her team of graduate students at theUniversity of Kansas,
