Secondary School Experiences of Students with Autism. Facts from NLTS2. NCSER 2007-3005
Newman, Lynn
National Center for Special Education Research
This fact sheet provides a national picture of the secondary school experiences of students with autism who received special education services under the auspices of school districts, by addressing the following questions: What is the pattern of course taking of secondary-school-age students with autism and in what settings are courses taken? What are the characteristics of classroom instruction provided to students with autism, and how do they differ in general, vocational, and special education classes? What types of accommodations, services, and supports do schools provide to students with autism? These questions are addressed by using data collected from school staff during Wave 1 of The National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2). (Contains 9 figures, 4 tables, and 15 footnotes.) (This document was produced by the Institute of Education Sciences' National Center for Special Education Research.)
