Engaging to learn: Increasing the engagement of children with autism in learning activities
Sargeant, J., Harcourt, D. & Keen, D. (2008). Engaging to learn: Increasing the engagement of children with autism in learning activities.
This research addresses the ARC national research priority of promoting and maintaining good health and well being for all Australians by enabling children with autism and their families to lead more productive and fulfilling lives. Children with autism are amongst the most challenging of all students for educators. Improving educational outcomes by engaging these children in learning, the aim of this research, is critical if these children are to achieve their full potential. This will benefit the Australian community by increasing independence, reducing barriers to inclusion, and improving the quality of life for children with autism and their families.
The data consists of digital video recordings, Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets, SPSS files and EndNote Libraries.
