Successful inclusion in high school is critical for achieving independence as an adult!
Even though inclusive education is now the standard for educating students with special needs, inclusion is a still a very new process. Successful inclusion relies on flexibility of parents and educators, and their ability to work together for the sake of the student. Training, collaboration, specialised teaching, long-term planning, and a clear idea of the desired outcome for the student — these are just as important at the high school level as they were in elementary and middle school.
This comprehensive guide will help you give your child or student the best possible high school experience. You will learn how to help students navigate the social minefields of friendships and dating, while fostering the executive functioning skills they will need as adults. Expert Sheila Wagner provides the strategies and solutions you’ll need before, during, and after high school.

“Sheila’s book goes a long way toward addressing the myriad of issues and positive ideas that wrap around the overarching concept of inclusion. …Thankfully, this book does an excellent job of exploring the range of topics that need to be discussed, not only with students who have Asperger’s Syndrome and similar disabilities, but also with educational providers and families. Spun with humor and insight, it offers the reader a firm grasp of the issues facing our teens as they prepare for their own adulthood.”
