Setting Up Classroom Spaces
Teachers have told us they need ideas on how to organize their classrooms to be functional for students on the autism spectrum and with other special needs. This book combines more than 50 years of experience from the authors of pictures taken while setting up and consulting to classrooms of all types. Along with the pictures are tips on the decisions that need to be made in relation to how to best organize the furniture, the materials, the visuals and other supports that go into successful instruction in special education. The process teachers use to make decisions about what materials are needed and how to implement them in real-life classrooms are a key component of this book.

All use read photos and age appropriate pictures and are great for literacy and augmentative communication.

Meet Christine Reeve
From running Autism Classroom Resources, to creating teacher resources on TeachersPayTeachers as Autism Classroom News, my passion has always been about bringing special educators together and helping them serve their students in the best ways they can. I have spent the last 20 years working with a wide variety of special education programs as a behavior specialist, an administrator, and primarily as a trainer and consultant. Teachers should never feel like they teach on an island. I want to change that by providing a site where special educators can come together to learn ways to make their jobs easier, to support each other, and to put the excitement back in their teaching.
